Self-Care. Because you deserve it!

I know you are busy and finding the time to take care of yourself is not even on your to-do list. Once the workload increases, and you are stressed, the first thing to go away from your routine is self-care. The term “self-care” sounds quite indulgent, but in reality, it’s just some basic habits helping in healthy functioning.

Let me explain why self-care is so important.

  • It reduces the negative effects of stress
  • It helps you re-focus into your work
  • It prevents “overload-burnout”

If you think self-care is all about a lush hot bath and stuffing yourself with a large pizza, you are not completely wrong, but you are not right either. Self-care is not luxury, but a mean for survival. Here’s how you can incorporate a bit of it in your life every day.
