Here in this article, we will read about 6 types of self-care and ways to practice them. I believe we should practice a little bit of each.
Emotional self-care means becoming more aware of your emotional aspect. It is about checking up on you, becoming mindful of your thinking patterns and triggers, and finding ways to work on them.
Physical self-care does not mean exercise and workouts. In today’s world, these are intimidating words as you don’t have the time to make a habit of working out in your busy schedule.
Spiritual self-care helps you to find peace within yourself, nourishes your soul, and provides a profound understanding of life beyond yourself.
We tend to neglect our intellectual well-being. This self-care involves you participating in things that you enjoy and also challenges your mind.
Sensory self-care benefits you by nourishing your senses – smell, sight, sound, and touch. It is an effective way to bring your mind to the present time and helps you to lower your stress levels.
By nature, humans are social beings. We like to feel connected and relatable to others. Social self-care may look distinct for extroverts and introverts.
– Spend time with friends in your house, café, lunch date, etc.
– Read a book.
– Spend more time with nature, evening walks and clicking pictures of nature.
