The term self-care describes the actions that an individual might take in order to reach optimal physical and mental health. Self-care can also refer to activities that an individual engages in to relax or attain emotional well-being, such as meditating, journaling, or visiting a counselor.
Tip: Talk to yourself the way you would talk to someone you love.
Avoid ruminating about the past or worrying excessively about the future, which creates "imaginary stress"
