As I entered the field of social work, the term “self-care” has been a constant term that has been getting drilled into our minds. Faculties and staff keep on reminding us to take care of ourselves, not only in a surface level – but in also in an interpersonal level.
I always said blogging is my form of self-care, and I still believe it is. However, I feel the need to “step up” my game and do something different as my form of self-care.
I understand self-care is completely up to myself and what others may think doesn’t matter. Nevertheless, there is almost a societal pressure to participate in things like meditation, mindfulness practice, yoga, coloring etc.
I wanted to hear from this community as I am on a quest to find my version of self-care. What does self-care look like for you? This may be a short post, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and I can use some suggestions.
