The act of self-care is about identifying our issues, acknowledging them, and taking care of ourselves by making conscious decisions and changes that influence our future wellbeing for the better. Although self-care is often misrepresented as shallow acts of self-indulgence there is a lot to be said about these simple luxuries.
While making deliberate self-initiated changes to break unhealthy habits will improve our wellbeing in the long term, acts of self-care that have short term benefits are just as important for the here and now; simple little habits that reap comforting rewards and make us feel better in the moment.
