4 Self-Care Practices You Need for Better Health, Happiness, and Well-Being

In recent years, the term “self-care” has become synonymous with things like bubble baths, massages, and long, relaxing days at the spa.

But self-care doesn’t have to be all about indulging in things you don’t have to do, like getting pedicures or booking a massage appointment; it can be much more than that, too, and it’s something we all need to do more of, especially as we get older and the demands of our careers and families increase in tandem with our responsibilities and roles as adults in society and as parents to our children and other loved ones, as well as to ourselves, as we age and face the inevitable changes that occur with age, like physical limitations, loss of loved ones, and the onset of chronic illnesses and diseases that come with aging and make it harder to do all the things we used to do, like working out and eating well and getting adequate sleep and rest, all of which can be very difficult as we get older, especially if we are already dealing with an illness or disability of some kind that makes it hard to do those things we used to do as easily as we once did them and may even make it hard to function at all in some instances, especially if we are dealing with a chronic illness or disability that makes us feel sick or fatigued all the time and doesn’t allow us to do things we used to do as easily as we used to do them, which can make us feel even more tired and fatigued, even though we have done our best to do all the things we used to do and keep up with them, and even though we may have done all the things we were supposed to do, like going to the doctor regularly and eating well and getting adequate sleep and rest and taking the right medications and doing the right exercises and taking the right vitamins and supplements, and doing all the things that we know we should do to make sure we stay healthy and fit and active and mentally and emotionally well and balanced and happy, even though we know we have done all those things and have done them very well, and even though we know that we are not sick or disabled and that we are not old, yet, but we are getting there, and we know that we will be in a few more years and that the demands of our lives and our roles as adults in society and as parents to our children and other loved ones, as well as to ourselves, as we age and face the inevitable changes that occur with age, like physical limitations, loss of loved ones, and the onset of chronic illnesses and diseases that come with aging and make it harder to do all the things we used to do, like working out and eating well and getting adequate sleep and rest, all of which can be very difficult as we get older, especially if we are already dealing with an illness or disability of some kind that makes it hard to do those things we used to do as easily as we used to do them and may even make it hard to function at all in some instances, especially if we are dealing with a chronic illness or disability that makes us feel sick or fatigued all the time and doesn’t allow us to do things we used to do as easily as we used to do them, which can make us feel even more tired and fatigued, even though we have done our best to do all the things we used to do and keep up with them, and even though we may have done all the things we were supposed to do, like going to the doctor regularly and eating well and getting adequate sleep and rest and taking the right medications and doing the right exercises and taking the right vitamins and supplements, and doing all the things that we know we should do to make sure we stay healthy and fit and active and mentally and emotionally well and balanced and happy, even though we know we have done all those things and have done them very well, and even though we know that we are not sick or disabled and that we are not old, yet, but we are getting there, and we know that we will be in a few more years and that the demands of our lives and our roles as adults in society and as parents to our children and other loved ones, as well as to ourselves, as we age and face the inevitable changes that occur with age, like physical limitations, loss of loved ones, and the onset of chronic illnesses and diseases that come with aging and make it harder to do all the things we used to do, like working out and eating well and getting adequate sleep and rest, all of which can be very difficult as we get older, especially if we are already dealing with an illness or disability of some kind that makes it hard to do those things we used to do as easily as we used to do them and may even make it hard to function at all in some instances, especially if we are dealing with a chronic illness or disability that makes us feel sick or fatigued all the time and doesn’t allow us to do things we used to do as easily as we used to do them, which can make us feel even more tired and fatigued, even though we have done our best to do all
