The Importance of Self Care

Posted on

Life in 2020 seemed to be very odd, didn’t it? We are experiencing all these life changes together and trying our best to cope as much as possible. Lockdown is back with us in 2021 and looks like it might be here to stay for a while.

Uncertainties, new realities and current stressful times can make any of us feel anxious, out of our depth or unsettled.

It is important to remember that feeling overwhelmed or stressed is a natural response to these strange times and although we may not be able to control the events that are going on right now, we can control how we respond to these challenges. This is where self-care comes into play.

Why Self Care is so Important? 

Self-care can be different for each and every one of us but ideally, it’s about looking after yourself physically and mentally. Anything you can do to make yourself feel better or cared for can be considered self-care. This could be ensuring you go outside for a walk each day or taking in the fresh air and enjoying the nature around you. Just doing this can make you feel very grounded and connected to your surroundings.

Perhaps baking is your love and you haven’t had the opportunity to get back into it; give it a go and see how it makes you feel!

Self-care doesn’t have to involve a huge time commitment and it doesn’t have to cost the earth either, it’s all about making that commitment to put yourself first for a change, even just for a little while.

Self-care can boost your self-esteem – by taking time to relax and look upon yourself more kindly. Studies have found that people with higher self-esteem find it easier to deal with setbacks and are more likely to achieve goals of self-improvement. Making these changes can help to manage mental health issues and might even prevent them from getting worse. Improving your mental well-being, taking time to care for yourself both mentally and physically is really important.

Remember self-care is not a “one-off” thing that only happens when we’re feeling overwhelmed, it needs to become a part of your everyday life.

Exercise is a great area of your health to focus on, especially through these challenging times. Endorphins or ‘feel-good’ chemicals are created in your body in response to exercise.

Ensuring you are taking the time to switch off every now and again is essential.
