Content provided by the Health & Wellness Team at GBS Benefits

International Self-Care Day is celebrated on July 24. This recognition day provides an opportunity to focus on living a healthy lifestyle through self-care practices. The date 7/24 is symbolic of the benefits from self-care that are experienced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Remember, self-care should not be considered a luxury, but a priority. Consider why self-care is important and how to implement regular self-care practices day-to-day.

Physical – Practice self-care by making physical health a priority. Schedule your preventive medical and dental exams today.

Emotional – Schedule time for a daily check-in to assess your emotional wellbeing. Notice changes that need to be made to cultivate and support your emotional health.

Intellectual – Is intellectual wellness really a form of self-care? Absolutely! Humans need consistent growth and progression to thrive. Learn about something new by picking up a book or exploring a new skill.

Financial – Self-care isn’t always about making time for relaxation – sometimes it’s about addressing difficult topics such as finances. Work towards building a healthy relationship with money. A new financial approach can address anxiety and stress, no matter the financial position.

Environmental – Spend time in nature to practice self-care and find ways to rejuvenate through the beauty of the outdoors.

Social – Focus on quality rather than quantity of social interactions to build meaning and purpose in social connections. Quality relationships can be fulfilling and uplifting – a great form of self-care!
