A lot of people I know have lately been asking: “What is self care?”. Self Care, by definition is: any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated. Some place self care on a continuum with health care providers at the opposite end to self care. In modern medicine, preventive medicine aligns most closely with self care. (Thank you wikipedia)
Now that you know the true definition of Self Care, I’m going to tell you 10 things you absolutely need to know about it.
1. It starts with SELF love.
Step one: Love yourself enough to treat yourself GOOD.
Your friends and family will thank you. It is so important for you to have enough love for yourself that you will take care of yourself! Drink enough water. Do some exercise. Take a break. When you have a fully filled cup, you can start to help fill other peoples! Its awesome how that works, huh?
SO… Self Care starts with YOU.
2. Self Care is all about prevention.
As mentioned in the definition. Self Care is all about stopping the thing before it starts!
Stress, toxicity, improper nutrition, terrible sleep patterns all contribute to disease, infection, discomfort and a plethora of other issues that the “modern” man deals with on the daily.
Why do we subject ourselves to this? When we definitely have means to prevent it!
3. Self Care CAN help with standing concerns.
Its TRUE! Ask anyone who has really integrated Self Care products into their life. I promise they will tell you what a difference it has made in their over all well-being along with addressing past health concerns. The Rule is: you take care of your body and it will take care of you!
4. Don’t overwhelm yourself.
Its okay to take Self Care step by step! Remember to take things at your own pace, you’re building a lifestyle not just a few good habits. Results may happen immediately or over time but, they do exist!
5. Self Care covers the five pillars of health
So what are the Five pillars of Health? Healthy Mind. Healthy Body. Healthy Family. Healthy Society and Healthy Finances.
Sounds pretty grand right? Our definition of Self Care addresses ALL of those pillars.
6. Self Care is all about BALANCE

7.Embrace natural means
There’s been some craziness in the holistic world as we’ve finally helped people open up their minds to alternative health care. I always tell people to keep their minds open… We have LOTS of methods for healing right in front of us ALL THE TIME.
8. BE HAPPY
Remember to be happy. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. Happy people are healthier too! Once you take the steps to be healthier you’ll start to see changes in your attitude and start actively seeking to take care of yourself. ITS AWESOME!
9. Its all about Environment
One thing people often over look is Environment. Your Environment has A LOT to do with your over all health care. What kind of water are your drinking? What kind of Air do you breathe? What type of food are you eating? Do you sleep well? Etc..
10. Total Self Care = Wellness HOME
