The World Health Organization defines self-care as: “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a health-care provider.” From a holistic point of view, self-care can include a number of vital behaviors that enhance our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
A good friend sent me an article from the Guardian today entitled, “Generation treat yo’ self: the problem with ‘self care’.”
