July 25 is Self Care Day

What is self care?

You might have heard the term “self-care” thrown around a lot lately. For some of you it’s a normal and everyday part of your vocabulary and daily routine. For others it might sound wishy washy, selfish, and a waste of time. 

At Truehope we believe self care is an essential part of a holistic approach to maintaining our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. Self care is choosing to do the hard thing that’s good for you, rather than taking the easy option that isn’t. Doing small things (and even big things) to fill your cup not only supports our personal health, but allows us to be there fully for the people and causes we love. 

Regardless of what you think of self care, you’re most likely already covering some of the basics! Self care really becomes impactful in your life when you can practice being mindful,and noticing what you need to take better care of yourself. 

Here are some examples:

  • Learning how to saying “no” rather than feeling obliged to do things you don’t really want to do. It’s a powerful word, but it takes some practice!
