Self-care are behaviors that refresh you, replenish your personal motivation, and help you grow as a person.
SELF CARE is any necessary human regulatory function that is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.
Self care is learned, purposeful and continuous.
Why it's so important?
SELF CARE = healthy relationship with yourself (self-love). It produces positive feelings, which improves confidence and self-esteem.
Self-care is important for your family and friends. They learn from you, so setting functional boundaries to take care of yourself shows them that they too need to put themselves first and not overextend or overwork. Unhealthy relationships come about when you don’t take time for your needs.
Neglecting your own needs and forgetting to nurture yourself often brings unhappiness, low self-esteem and resentment.
