At Acacia Creek, a Masterpiece Living Certified Center for Successful Aging, and retirement community, we believe that maintaining a balanced lifestyle starts with ourselves in the form of self-care. Some people think self-care as being indulgent and selfish, it’s the opposite. It is being disciplined to make healthy choices every day, rather than doing what is easy or what feels good in the moment. People who practice self-care create a balanced lifestyle in all areas of wellness: social, intellectual, physical and spiritual.
By making self-care our priority, we create a balanced healthy life. This allow us to handle life’s uncertainties.
Think about how you might want to create more self-care:
- How will you nurture your relationships with friends and family?
- What mentally stimulating activities will you regularly participate in?
- How will you get enough physical activity to make your body feel better?
- How will you process your emotions in a healthy way?
