Self-care means being aware of your personal health needs and knowing what actions to take to stay healthy. It involves active participation in your own health care through informed decision making. Self-care includes developing healthy habits, making healthy lifestyle choices, knowing if and when you should seek medical treatment, and following care plans your doctor has provided for chronic conditions you may have.
Self-care has many components, but the most important one is you. Knowing your health risks and what you can do about them is essential to living a healthy lifestyle. Complete a health risk assessment to identify your potential health risks and receive a personalized action plan to assist you with meeting your health goals.
You have more control over your health and health care than you may think. Taking the time to care for yourself shows you value yourself and your needs. Eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise and getting enough sleep are important for overall health and stress management, and contribute to your overall sense of well-being.
