People have LOTS of opinions on self-care, so let’s start by getting on the same page about what self-care is. Self-care is the basics – getting rest, eating nourishing food, and moving our bodies. At its core, self-care is just the basics. Although if I could add a higher-level function to this list, it would be talking to ourselves in a kind and compassionate way (more on this to come).
Self-care has also been associated with, or equated to, treating yourself, indulgence, and sometimes weakness. It’s almost as if, if you have to engage in self-care, there is something wrong with you or you’ve let something get out of hand (all unhelpful thought processes, by the way!)
Let’s take it back to the brain though.
