The World Health Organization (WHO) defines self-care as the ability to promote and maintain health, prevent disease, and cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider.

To feel our best in all aspects of life, we need to embrace many forms of self-care to utilize consistently throughout the changing seasons of our lives.

Examples of different types of self-care are:

  • Self-care for the emotional self
  • Self-care for the physical body
  • Supporting your mental health
  • Social self-care
  • Spiritual self-care
  • Professional self-care

Self-care is a tremendously supportive way to enhance our ability to show up and be present in our life experiences. It can help prevent potential feelings such as overwhelm, burnout, and lack of fulfillment.
