The practice of self-care is incredibly important for people keeping their mental and physical health in a positive outlook. Personally, I practice self-care whenever I feel that my mood is beginning to decline. For me, self-care consists of many different practices that give me comfort and relief any stress I may have. I do many things that give me comfort physically, emotionally, or mentally. I practice my self-care by playing my guitar, learning new ways to invest, reading novels, doing homework in sections, listening to music, working out, and playing video games. The impact of these practices may seem insignificant at first, however, they really matter as life goes on. The result of performing these self-care practices have really impacted my life. By practicing these activities, my attitude and mood is positively lifted. As a result, many other aspects of my life are improved. These aspects include bringing a positive attitude into social events, greeting others when entering a classroom, and completing assignments with effective time management. Besides improving your mood, practicing self-care can also help conquer conflict occurring within your life. When I worried over my financial situation during the Covid-19 pandemic, I occasionally listened to music in order to calm my nerves. This allowed my mind to think clearly and view my potential solutions through this hard time. Self-care is incredibly important because it allows yourself to relax and enjoy things you love. Life can be stressful and challenging at times, however, practicing self-care can help overcome these difficulties in a progressive manner.
