Why Self-care is Important to Me...

Why Self-care is Important to Me...

Why is self-care so important to me? In all honesty, itโ€™s important to me because I know the benefits of it. Letโ€™s first start with the definition of self-care that I often refer to: โ€œ๐’๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ-๐œ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐๐ฌ๐ž๐ญ, ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ญ๐ข๐ž๐ฌ, ๐ฉ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ž๐ฌย ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ก๐š๐›๐ข๐ญ๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ž ๐›๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ญ๐จ ๐›๐ž๐š๐ซ ๐š๐ ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐ฎ๐ง๐ก๐š๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐๐ž๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฆ๐š๐ง๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ž ๐ง๐ž๐ ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž emotions...โ€โฃ September 2019 is when it all began (at least thatโ€™s what I recall).

Do you support mental health days?

Do you support mental health days?

Employers, Managers, Supervisors, Administrators, Employees and ALL others, do you support mental health days? Employers, if your employees come to you requesting to take a mental health day, how do you react? Employees, when you have requested mental health days, how did your employer act? Do people request mental health days or are they afraid to do so?

Sometimes, we need to get away from it all and RECHARGE! It is so...

To each's own, but this post will...

Unplug for an hour.

....did you know that self-care is NOT a one time thing? You didn't, well now you know. Every now and again, find time to unplug for at least an hour. So whatever unplug means to you, whether that is turning off your cellphone, logging off of social media, turning off the tv, locking yourself in the bathroom if you have children (ha ha), etc.โ€ฉ You need that time to RECHARGE. We've all left our phones at home before (well I have) and it's something liberating about the world not being able to get in contact with you (to eachsย own, I...
