@stonepixie absolutely! Self-care, like most things, should be done with moderation in mind

Re: [CHAT] I look after me

@Chessca_H that's true. Especially when it comes to school, your told to do your homework, study! study! study! So much focus is put on the school work, passing grades with the occasional talk about bullying and online safety. The school system really needs to revise what the focus is put on. I was lucky enough to have a great mum who would let me or my siblings have a day at home for a break. I think that if schools teach self-care, mental health awareness and put a little more focus on individual health rather than individual marks/grades, there would be less stress in schools, because students would know how (self-care) to take care of themselves.

Re: [CHAT] I look after me

Let's flip this discussion around a bit to something a bit more positive

 

On the other hand, what are some of the benefits that come with practicing self-care?

Re: [CHAT] I look after me

@safari93 @Chessca_H @holoholo It is funny how we have this mentality of nothing to show for if we practice self-care, yet if we don't practice it, it is very noticable to everyone else as you may look run down and raggered, with bags under your eyes and pimples from all the stress and your energy levels, etc.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

It helps you to recharge and it also seems to help me focus on what I need to do. If I work for a very long time I start to get scatterbrained (it's a little ridiculous) and self-care brings me down and lets me focus on something easy and relaxing for a while
