When most people think of self-care, they think of eating well and exercise. While those are really important and central to self-care, in reality, it is much more than that. Self-care includes attending to sleep, spiritual needs and the mind-body connection. In addition, self-care includes having one’s own doctor who can be there when there is a need. Doing regular self-care can pay back in practical benefits – ability to concentrate, focus, and be present in one’s life.
