Importance of self-care: why caring for yourself is caring for all
There’s an analogy about self-care that I’ve seen more times than I can count, but it’s widespread for a reason. It compares this process to oxygen masks in airplanes — you’re supposed to secure your own mask before you assist others. The logic here is that if you can’t breathe, you can’t very well help anyone else. Practising self-care is much the same. You have to take care of your own mental and physical health before you can truly devote yourself to your family and friends.
But what is self-care, exactly? Generally speaking, self-care is engaging in activities and behaviours that have a positive effect on your mental and physical health. There is no one thing — or even a list of things — that encompasses self-care. It’s different for each person. However, the end goal is always the same: to reduce stress, preserve relationships, maintain a beneficial work/life balance, and nurture your mental and physical well-being.
Self-care involves a lot of introspection. It requires identifying your needs and taking the necessary steps to meet them. Finally, there’s a bit of a “reverse golden rule” aspect to the practice — treat yourself as compassionately as you treat others. While all of this may seem obvious, many of us (myself included) often put the needs of others first, setting our own aside — and damaging our mental health in the interim.
