WHAT IS SELF CARE AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO YOUR HEALTH?
Self-care is not the same as being self-indulgent or being selfish. Self-care means taking care of yourself so that you can be healthy in mind, body, and soul. Self care means that you can be well enough to functiion properly on your job, or so that you can help and care for others, like your family.
Self-care comes in a variety of forms. It does not require an elaborate plan; self-care can be as simple as taking a few deep breaths when you notice you are becoming stressed to as elaborate as planning a spa day; getting massaged by the best with expensive hair, feet and hand care.
By maintaining your mental health, you will likely be better equipped to handle the stressors that come along.
So why is self care important to your health? Engaging in a self-care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness and improve energy. Taking care of yourself is an important part of building resilience, or bouncing back from stress, trauma, and burnout. Self-care can help you recognize your emotional responses to stress, and develop coping skills to manage them.
Scents can have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self-confidence, and physical and cognitive performance. Clearly, using candles can be a great way to show yourself some love.
