The Importance of Self-Care in Preventing Chronic Health Problems
Stress is part of life, but before it gets to be too much, it’s time to take care of yourself. Self-care is not selfish.
We all experience stress, it’s hardwired into our DNA; the fight or flight response is within each of us. But when we’ve been cooped up for too long, or events outside of your control way too heavily on your mind, it can all be too much. Mental stress can have serious negative effects on your physical health. That’s why it’s important to take care of yourself, especially if you take care of others or if you’re the type of empath that others lean on, you need to take a break.
To help others you must first help yourself.
