What is Intentional Self-care?

Intentional self-care is taking the time to check-in with yourself physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually to ensure that you are healthy and functioning at your best. It’s an essential component to our every day and can cause us to reap great benefits when practiced on a consistent basis.

Regularly practicing self-care increases our ability to sustain ourselves and engage in the work we love. A lack of self-care contributes to burnout and a decreased ability to accomplish your goals, both personally and professionally.

Lifestyle balance is living day to day in a manner that promotes a healthy physical and mental state. The way you manage your time, health, roles, etc., can lead to a higher quality of life and provide you with balance and a less stressful experience.

Being intentional with your self-care and identifying lifestyle patterns enables people to manage the demands of everyday life. Exercising, quality sleep, and nutritional practices are highly related to reducing/preventing specific conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, or diabetes.

Everyone is different. It’s up to you to decide what lifestyle balance looks like. By staying present, journaling, managing your time efficiently, setting boundaries, setting life goals or even utilizing self-care apps like Lumosity, TraiLink and Stop, Think, Breathe can help to simplify your self care.
