Self-care and self-love are buzzwords these days, but what exactly do they mean and why is it so crucial to take care of yourself? It’s easy to get caught up in all the things we do for others, especially in the military world. There’s always something or someone that needs our attention. Making time daily to put yourself first will not only help you to recognize just how awesome and special you are but will also put you in a better position to enjoy the life you are living.
Self-care is simply that: caring for yourself. It can come in any shape or form that speaks to you and your unique wants and needs. Whatever you choose, it should make you feel good and be specifically for you, not anyone else. Self-care can be practiced daily, weekly, monthly or just in the moment.
