“One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned as a therapist is that self-care isn’t self-indulgent—it’s absolutely crucial.”
– Nathalie Theodore, J.D., MSW, LCSW
The majority of people would agree that they are too busy or constantly out of time. What they don’t agree on is what ‘relaxation’ looks like. What is relaxing to one person may be stressful to another.
Take a moment to think about what activities truly make you feel relaxed. Is it yoga, crafts, reading, a walk, exercise, getting a suntan or even playing a video game?
Once you can identify what makes you feel relaxed – drop the guilt! It’s OKAY and crucial, according to Nathalie Theodore, to take some time to relax. You can be just as successful each and every day while maintaining a relaxing activity to encourage mental stability.
