What is self-care and why is it important?
Self-care helps us to cope with daily stressors.
Stress is simply a reaction, either real or imagined, to situations, events or people. People may experience symptoms of anxiety, worry, and withdrawal when people are suffering from stress. We may even start taking actions to escape the stressful feelings. These might not always be positive and practicing self-care can help people get back to what works.
The most common trigger of stress is loss; the loss of, or change in a relationship, the loss of another person (Grief), or the loss of stability associated with change (job).
