If we neglect our emotional self, we may be less empathetic to the needs of others.
Part of understanding self-care is knowing that there are different “selves” that make up who we are.
Just as caring for our bodies requires discipline to do the hard and sometimes even boring things that are good for us, so does practicing self-care for our spiritual, sensory, emotional, physical, and social selves.
In a nutshell, self care is any deliberate action we take to help maintain a healthy spiritual, sensory, emotional, physical, and social well-being.
