Simple everyday things such as brushing your teeth twice a day, taking a bath or shower; drinking enough water, eating three square meals, and getting enough sleep are all considered to be physical self-care. Practicing these daily rituals can boost your overall physical health and make you feel way better than if you didn't.
Mental self-care can include anything from reading a book, listening to a podcast, watching a documentary or funny movie, or watching your favorite TV show. It's all about giving your brain new things to do that will help you feel accomplished and on-point mentally.
Emotional self-care starts with making sure you're doing the things that make you feel emotionally fulfilled. This can be anything from volunteering at your local homeless shelter, writing in your daily journal, baking the neighbors an apple pie, or writing down your daily intentions.
Social interaction helps us as humans feel connected, fulfilled, validated, and loved. It is important that we do not isolate ourselves from the rest of the world, especially during times of the pandemic and quarantining. It is great to make time to spend by ourselves daily, but penciling in some social time is extremely important to maintain a healthy and happy balance.
