Self – Care: What is it and Why You Need to Focus On It



Self-care has become a popular movement meaning the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health. Stress can have dangerous health consequences if left unchecked. That’s where self-care techniques come in.


Our team at Fitness 120 is always thinking about health and fitness as a means to elevating your life but we wanted to take some time to think about the other aspects of self-improvement to guide you to a place of mindfulness and happiness.


There are five dimensions of self-care: physical, intellectual, social, spiritual and emotional aspects.


Physical self-care incorporates fitness and sleep habits, how you manage stress, medical and dental check-ups.


Intellectual self-care includes your personal growth, continuously pursuing learning and educational opportunities, trying new things and having a positive mindset.


Social self-care means having a supportive network of people you can turn to when you need guidance, uplifting or someone to talk to. Social connections create a sense of belonging and acceptance.


Spiritual self-care encompasses beliefs and values that help shape and guide your life. The focus is on nourishing your soul and seeking understanding through your spiritual life.


Emotional self-care includes awareness and understanding of your emotions and feelings.

Self-care is an important aspect of helping you to deal with stress positively and cultivate a sense of compassion, love and kindness for yourself and others.


There are many resources in our community to help you find contentment.


This month we are partnering with the Bike Haven and Core Chiropractic; these two local businesses encourage taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being.


Stop into Fitness 120 or contact us today to learn about how we can work together to get you closer to a place of bliss!
