How to engage in self care
Self-care means a process of establishing behaviours to protect well-being. Taking care of ourselves can enhance our work productivity, help us to cope with daily stressors and fosters resilience. In order to truly take care of ourselves, we just need to start prioritising our needs, which can be a difficult process. A part of our culture always emphasises on taking care of others. But we can only serve others when our cup is full.
We can begin by trying small steps and then slowly move bringing about bigger changes. Consistency is the key.
