Self-care is important for our total well-being.  Taking some time alone time to meditate, spending time at the beach or walking through the woods lowers our stress level,  improves our mental faculties and reduces anxiety.  It also builds our self-esteem over time as we come to realize that we deserve to have a little time to ourselves.

Self-care also includes having good nutrition which can help reduce the risk of some diseases, including diabetes, stroke, heart disease, reduces high blood pressure, lowers high cholesterol and increase energy level.  A well-balanced diet provides important vitamins, mineral and nutrients to keep the body and mind strong and healthy.
