If you think that self-care and self-compassion are just for people who suffer from mental illness, think again! No matter who we are, or how organized we may feel, our lifestyles are only as sustainable as our self-care habits. Self-care isn’t selfish! Not only does self-care help you to stay grounded and more resilient in the face of life’s challenges, but it also makes you a positive role model for maintaining a healthy attitude of compassion & love towards self. This seemingly small act can have a profound effect on those around you when they witness firsthand that caring for yourself and taking time to re-charge actually makes you calmer, stronger, and more capable.
