Self-care and self-love are vital to our health. Self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.
Some place self-care on a continuum with health care providers at the opposite end to self-care. In modern medicine, preventive medicine aligns most closely with self-care.
Examples of self-care include:
Aim for a healthy diet.
Make time for relaxation.
Keep a reflective journal.
Engage with a non-work hobby.
Develop a regular sleep routine.
Develop friendships that are supportive.
