Practice Self-care

Sign us up for this! Engaging in a self-care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress and increase happiness. Self-care does not need to be time-consuming or expensive. It’s up to you – choose practices that make you feel refueled (culinary self-care, anyone?). Americans participating in a December 2020 national survey cited benefits of self-care like enhanced self-confidence (64%), increased productivity (67%) and happiness (71%). From a physical health perspective, self-care also reduces heart disease, stroke and cancer. For some self-care inspiration, see how MHFA staff stay well and read National Trainer Suzanne Pearlman’s “Living My Values” blog for examples of daily, weekly and monthly self-care practices you can try today.
