The Importance of Self-Care
When is the last time you took a moment purely for yourself?
Turns out, having some time for self-care is one of the best things that you can do for your health and happiness. Contrary to popular belief, self-care is not selfish. Self-care is actually essential for all of us in our healing journey.
The challenge is that all too often we prioritize other things above self-care (ie: doing the dishes, laundry, going to work, cleaning the house, paying the bills, watching tv, spending time with others, etc…).
The good news is that there are small and powerful ways that you can take care of yourself in a better way, starting today. Relax, put your feet up, and enjoy one of the videos below.
In honor of your best health, we are sharing 5 of our favorite TED Talks related to self-care.
