In today’s society, people tend to forget to take care of themselves, it’s essential to balancing the mind the body and the soul, the key to being happy, and being healthy. So, Charlie and I are here to remind you; that When life is moving as fast as a New York minute, you need to stop take a breath relax and concentrate on you. Especially if you recently lost someone or a fur baby, if you’re a caregiver, if you’re working too much, if you have an overload of financial stress, family stress, or political stress just to name few
Welcome to the first episode of Tea with Charlie and me…where today Charlie, our Shih Tzu, and I on a weekly basis, are going to provide to you midweek mini-discussions, tips, resources, and talk about life little aggravations. Now I know that I said mid-week and today is Friday, but We figured this is the best time to share with you, right before the weekend: The Top 10 Self-Care Tips for Mental Health and Well-Being: The #1 Prescription You Should Write to Yourself!
The Oxford Dictionary defines self-care as; NOUN (mass) noun
1. It’s The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.
2. And The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress. Ie… an essential form of self-care’ methodology is meditation’ To relax and refresh the mind body and soul
So, Charlie and I recommend that you write yourself a prescription for self-care!
Create a daily or weekly schedule that you take care of yourself! Take the time to recognize that you are the only one that can effectively prescribe these methodologies for your own mental health and well-being!
Unfortunately, sometimes we have to learn the art of “self-care” as it’s not typically taught to us as a child. Although some people grow up in an environment that nurtures, and develops self-care, some of us have to take a proactive approach to learning it, baby steps in some cases. The key is balancing mind body and soul, doing it at a pace that’s comfortable to you
Furthermore, self-care is extremely important to the caretaker, who is providing care to someone 24/7, and classically thrust into the position without any training or expectation of duties. It is imperative that you learn how to de-stress from that part of your life.
