We have all heard of self-care, so I want to start by clearing up one common misconception: Self-care is not being self-indulgent or selfish. Self-care means that you are taking care of yourself so that you can be healthy, you can be resilient, can focus and function at your job, you can help and care for others, and so you can do all the things you need to and want to accomplish in a day.
Why is self-care just as important as eating healthy and exercising? Simply put, if you're not taking care of yourself both physically and emotionally, everything else around you can suffer.
What Is Self-Care?
Self-care is doing something that nurtures, fuels, or honors you. One of the most important things to remember about self-care is that it is about listening to what your mind and body are telling you they need.
What Are The Benefits Of Self-Care?
In addition to helping you feel more balanced and allowing you to better care for others, here are a few more benefits of self-care:
Reduced stress, anxiety, and depression
Increased energy throughout the day
Higher levels of productivity
Enhanced intuition and emotional awareness
Stronger interpersonal relationships
Increased self-confidence and self-respect
How Can Neurofeedback Help?
Our brain is unique in its complexity and ability and is the primary source of daily habits, mindset, and function.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive technique used to help the brain self-regulate. It doesn't matter your starting point; EVERY brain can benefit and tap into its own unique optimal state.
You need to look at brain training as you would exercising and eating healthy. One doesn't go to the gym one day and is all pumped up, and you never need to go again; you keep going to reach and maintain your health goals. The same thing with eating healthy, you don't eat a salad once, and all your ailments disappear; you need to consistently eat a healthy diet to feel the health benefits.
