Self-Care Practices

If you take good care of your mind and body, your mind and body will take great care of you! This does not have to involve a lot of time or energy on your part. Taking good care of yourself really just means identifying the personal balance you need among work, sleep, play, physical activity, social time, and quiet time – and making it a priority to maintain that balance.

Some self-care practices include:

  • Get 7-9 hours of sleep per night
  • Eat several small meals per day
  • Have some social time every day
  • Get outside every day
  • Move your body and/or exercise every day
