What is Self Care? - Importance, Benefits & How to Practise?

Giving importance to only physical health does not mean you are living a healthy life. One must also focus on their mental health and emotional well-being, as all these elements act as a holistic approach toward self-care.


Self-care has been a prime focus for many individuals, especially since the pandemic's beginning. People realised that they not only needed to be physically fit but also to keep a tab on their mental well-being as the pandemic had impacted many people emotionally.

What Is Self-Care?

It is doing an activity or inculcating a habit to feel good or content emotionally, physically, and mentally. This activity must be done regularly, and it is essential to make it part of one's routine. Self-care can also include avoiding habits that affect one's mood and emotional well-being.

Importance Of Self-Care Routine & Its Benefits

Practising self-care benefits a person's physical and mental well-being. This helps a person feel less stressed and anxious and puts them in a good mood, thereby improving productivity and motivation. Also, focusing on overall well-being helps people connect with their friends, family and even co-workers as it helps them connect better and rely on each other when one is having a tough day or is stressed out or anxious about something.


Healthy lifestyle choices have immense advantages like a reduced risk of chronic diseases and increased longevity. Self-care activities can be as small as sleeping on time, drinking lots of water, and applying sunscreen as they go a long way in helping a person take care of their body, skin, mental health etc. 

Creating A Self-Care Routine

To create a self-care routine, one can start by thinking about the things or activities they like but somehow never find time for them. It can be going for a walk or a swim. One should make sure to allot a specific time of their day as their 'me time, where they indulge in an activity without involving others. This will help them relax and focus on themselves.


Also, on days when a person finds it difficult to be consistent, they should practice self-care for a few minutes at least. Additionally, a person can also choose to switch their interests and need not do the same things every day. The most important thing is doing something for oneself for at least 10-15 minutes daily. Most importantly, never feel guilty about taking time out for yourself.
