What Is the Importance of Self-Care?

July 30, 2018

It’s unfortunately all too common for people to feel overwhelmed with the stresses of their daily lives. We get overwhelmed at work. We have all kinds of projects at home that we just haven’t been able to get to. There’s not a break in sight on our calendars.

While treating yourself and indulging in some self-care might seem impossible given the state of your life, it’s imperative if you’re going to keep your stress and anxiety levels down. Self-care doesn’t have to be anything outrageous or over-the-top—in fact, something as simple as actually taking the time to eat lunch during a busy work day, getting eight hours of sleep at night, making time to go to the health club in Chandler, AZ or hanging out with friends can be considered self-care. It’s anything that helps you recharge and gives you a reprieve from the everyday stresses you have to deal with in your life.

Here are just a few reasons why self-care is so important:

  • It helps you avoid overloading yourself: At some point, even if you have a high stress tolerance, you will get to the point where you simply cannot take any more stress in your life. The result is usually shutting down completely, which can have devastating consequences in your personal and professional life. Self-care helps to prevent you from getting to that point, and will give you the necessary time to recharge.
  • It can reduce some of the effects of stress: Small amounts of stress can be a good thing to have in your daily life, as it can propel you forward and encourage you to accomplish the various tasks and jobs you have for yourself. However, large amounts of stress come with unwanted side effects, including sleep loss, weight gain, immune system breakdown and more. By taking care of yourself, you can prevent the stress from taking over your life, allowing you to feel and function your best on a daily basis.
  • It helps you refocus on other important tasks: Sometimes you need to take a step away from what’s causing you stress so you can get more focused on the task at hand. This is true with our jobs and schoolwork, and it’s just as true with life in general. Take the time to get away every now and then and refocus.

Everyone is busy, but we all have the ability, believe it or not, to make time for ourselves to eat well, exercise and get enough sleep.

At our clinic, we provide a variety of ways for our clients to indulge in some much-needed self-care. We offer massages, acupuncture, group fitness sessions, facials and many more services to help you improve your general health and wellness.
