What is Self-Care?

Self-care is a practice of intentionally making time to assess our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual states. It involves addressing our thoughts, feelings, and health in a holistic way that allows us to continue working to the best of our ability. In College, our mind, body and soul are stretched in new ways and it's important to care for ourselves through these academic challenges.

To get started, it helps to be mindful of what are emotions, thoughts and body are trying to tell us. God designed humans so uniquely that we have the ability to reflect (metacognitively) on these things and carefully listen for HIS guidance. Check out this video to learn more about how mindfulness meditation can help you begin practicing self-care.
