We have all sorts of “care” programs for the elements that are dear to us – skincare when caring for our skin, haircare when caring for our hair, or nail care when caring for our nails. When it comes to caring for ourselves, “self-care” routines are the go-to options to relax and recover from stress.
But, what really is “self-care”? Is it enough to take care of one’s worries by traveling? Is it enough to indulge in pastries and coffee? Is it enough to layer one’s face with countless skincare products?
Self-care is a comprehensive term for taking care of one’s mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual self. After all, if at least one of these elements is missing, one will not be able to gain any benefit.
By taking care of the physical body, one achieves health and confidence. By taking care of one’s thoughts and feelings, one can channel their emotions more effectively. By managing their social relationships, a person remains connected to those they value. By staying true to their beliefs, they achieve serenity.
