Welcome all to 2023. We hope you have all had a restful & rejuvenating time and are ready to face the New Year. Our Health focus for this year will be around self-care this is really what the name implies — taking care of your personal health and well-being. You are responsible for your physical, emotional and mental health, and keeping these elements balanced requires some consistent self-love.
You would think that “self-care” is a series of intuitive actions that are done naturally, but that is not really true, is it? Practicing self-care really requires reflection and motivation. Your self-care checklist may differ greatly from your spouse’s, mother’s or child’s, so it also needs to be customised to suite your needs.
But do not underestimate the benefits of self-care, especially during stress-inducing times. Over time, those who take care of themselves will experience greater overall health and longevity.
Researchers define self-care as “the set of activities in which one engages throughout life on a daily basis.”
These activities are meant to:
- promote optimal health
- prevent illness
- detect symptoms early
- manage chronic disease
Self-care is essential. Although it is sometimes viewed as a luxury — trips to the spa, retreats, getaways and take-out juices, it is really made up of small, everyday steps you take to enhance your overall wellness.
How to use this checklist
This self-care checklist is a compilation of activities and habits that can be added to your daily routine to promote your overall health. You don’t have to implement all of these ideas, necessarily, but you can choose which ones are needed to promote your personal well-being.
For the most part, these activities are practiced daily or several times per week. Remember that one of the best self-care strategies is sticking to a routine and making these actions part of your everyday life.
We will be adding activities every week that you can download and action.
