What does the term Self-care stand for?

Self-care wants to remind us to take good care of ourselves. It has been known for a long time that only those who take good care of themselves can take good care of others.

That is not about selfishly minding our own business but about being good stewards of our resources, i.e., we may allow ourselves breaks, do something good for ourselves now and then, and be careful not to overextend ourselves.

From then until today

Self-care, i.e., taking care of oneself, was already an issue in ancient philosophical considerations. The ancient philosophers already recommended methods that would serve self-care, such as physical training, philosophical reflection, meditation, reading, and critical engagement with one’s truths. The latter is ‘mindset work’ today.

Until today, self-care encompasses recommendations and methods ranging from physical care to training health-promoting mental techniques and emotion regulation.

Self Care includes:

Thinking Positive
Paying Attention to your own Limits
Stress Management

Ways to More Self-care

Nowadays, self-care is integral in many ways that promote health and personal development. It is always about being a better way of dealing with oneself and building or maintaining personal resources. It can be trained in the context of coaching, mindfulness and emotional intelligence, or advanced training aimed at work-life balance, stress management, or resilience.
