*This program is under development at this time*WE ALL NEED SELF-CARE ......Self-care is just about anything to do to be good to oneself. A self-care plan can help to enhance one's health and wellbeing, manage stress. Learn to identify activities and practices that support wellbeing and help to sustain a positive attitude.Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept, in theory, it’s something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others.Self-care is not a selfish act either. It is not only about considering our own needs; it is rather about knowing what we need to do in order to take care of ourselves, being subsequently, able to take care of others as well. That is, if I do not take enough care of myself, I would not be in the place to give to my loved ones either.DO YOU KNOW .......
