Self Care Tips to Manage Stress

  • Self-care means taking time to do things you enjoy. Usually, self-care involves everyday activities that you find relaxing, fun, or energizing. These activities could be as simple as reading a book.
  • Self-care also means taking care of yourself. This means eating regular meals, getting enough sleep, caring for personal hygiene, and anything else that maintains good health.
  • Set specific self-care goals. It’s difficult to follow through with vague goals, such as “I will take more time for self-care.” Instead, try something specific, such as “I will walk for 30 minutes every evening after class.”
  • Unhealthy activities don’t count as self-care. Substance use, over-eating, binge watching Netflix, and other unhealthy behaviors might hide uncomfortable emotions temporarily, but they cause more problems in the long run.
