Our Canadian PT and PhysioYoga colleague, Shelly Prosko, shared this blog post with us, and we appreciate her wisdom. "Self-care" has become a term tossed around with ease, but as Shelly notes it caan easily become another "to-do list" item to be checked from the list.
From her blog: "I do believe there is one consistent feature of self-care, and it is self-compassion. Self-compassion includes having a clear non-judgemental awareness of your needs and having the courage, kindness and love to meet those needs, including asking for support when needed.
In summary, I try to think of self-care as an ongoing process of self-compassion and way of life, and not a list of activities to check off."
