Self-care is any action we take deliberately to better our health. When many people hear the term self-care, images of yoga and meditation spring to mind. While those are both great self-care practices, the concept extends far beyond those two activities.
Between classes, relationships, homework, clubs, midterms, family, and more... it can get difficult to keep up with everything while in college. With all that in mind, self-care becomes a vital practice that is best carried out proactively. Counseling Services advocates using Self-Care Anchors to keep up with your wellness over the course of the academic term.
A Self-Care Anchor is a small action that promotes long-term wellness when repeated daily. Anchors are different for everyone, and can vary widely based on the goals of the individual.
