Now more than ever, practicing self-care is increasingly valuable when it comes to taking care of our emotional health and well-being. In this month’s Teal Talk, MOCA Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany shares how simple self-care activities can change your perspective.

So, what is self-care? I’ve found self-care can be whatever you want or need it to be! Taking time out for yourself is important, especially when life feels overwhelming.

Start the day on a positive note by creating a morning routine. Try yoga or a mindfulness exercise to kick-off your day. Maybe you prefer to ease into the morning and relax with a cup of tea or coffee.

Self-care could be taking a long bath, decluttering or cooking a favorite meal. Others enjoy making time for a hobby or activity they enjoy or learning a new skill.

Another way to practice self-care is by staying active and exercising. We’re discussing ways to add safe, physical activity into your everyday life in our next virtual Living Well meeting, February 23. I hope you’ll join us for this free event by signing up, here.

Help nurture the health of your mind and body by implementing self-care habits or routines into your life! The new year is a great time to start making time for yourself.
