If we are to break down self-care to it's core points, it is to: move, eat healthy, drink water, sleep, and socialize.
It creates a catchy acronym of MEDSS.
By doing MEDSS it helps alleviate our pain, hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness (PHALT). Therefore giving us a little more fuel in our tank to take on whatever the day may throw at us.
If you are struggling with self-care, pick one, and start there. Have a glass of water, go to bed 15 minutes earlier, take the stairs, munch on veggies, or connect with a friend, just to name a couple of ideas.
Self-care is a way of being.
