The Importance of Self Care


The holidays are joyful time for some; and a lonely, depressing time for others. The several people who go through this, more than likely, experience something called burnout because they are under too much stress. Burnout is defined to be a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed (Burn-out an “Occupational Phenomenon”: International Classification of Diseases, 2019). Howver, this can aided by a bit of self-care each day. Self-care can be different for everyone because nobody is the same. Self-care for me is buying new hygiene products, sleeping, getting my hair done, and so much more. For you, it might just be making up your bed every morning or folding your clothes. I say self-care is whatever makes you feel calm and grounded. Furthermore, it has been proven clinically that self-care has reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes (What Is Self-Care and Why Is It Important for You?, 2020). This doubles the importance of self-care. We are young high school students. If you don’t take care of your self now; your body will make you for it later. In conclusion, always remeber that health is wealth! Nothing else matters if you’re not healthy.
