At The Anxiety Relief Center, we believe that therapy is one of the most beneficial and precious forms of self care. Therapy is a time to be seen, heard and understood on a deeper level. At times, we can forget that the relationship with ourself is the foundation for all relationships. Treating ourselves with care, love and compassion helps us treat others that way too.
What is self care and how it helps with anxiety
Self care is a personal practice. Self care refers to practices and activities that you can engage in regularly to reduce your stress and maintain your health. Basically, it’s doing more of what you like to do and, also, finding new things that might be enjoyable and calming for you.
Consider self care as a necessary survival skill. The great thing about it is that there is no wrong way of doing it. If you make the time to practice self care it will help you limit and alleviate the stress and strain you encounter every day. If we don’t attend to ourselves we burn out and as a result our personal and professional lives suffer. Every day is a balancing act between our work, home, family, friends, and personal needs. It can be easy to forget about our own basic needs and wants with so much to juggle.
