When we talk about self-care, there are five primal types of self-care:
a. Physical- taking care of your body
b. Emotional- taking care of your feelings
c. Mental- taking care of your mind
d. Social- taking care of your relationships with people, family, and friends
e. Practical- taking care of things that monetarily support you in life
Most of us have heard the famous Greek quote, “A sound mind is in a sound body” which means that there needs to be an equilibrium between your mental and physical health. So, with self-care, it is important to first recognize where you lack. Is it mental, emotional, physical, social or practical? Pinpoint the things that lack.
