The Importance of Self Care
Andrea Lee- Clinic Founder and Osteopathic Manual Therapist
On July 24th, it is National Self Care Day, and today we are discussing the importance of self care to ensure that you are prioritizing your physical and mental health.
Why is Self Care Important?
It is important to understand that self care does not mean that you are being self indulgent, it simply means taking care of yourself. The World Health Organization defines self care as “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a health-care provider.”
Self care allows you to stay healthy, and gives you the capacity to not only look after yourself, but others as well.
