Why Self-Care?

It’s simple: When we’re healthy, we have more to give.

And honestly, we can’t afford not to. Health care is expensive, from insurance premiums to deductibles to coinsurance to copays to out-of-pocket expenses…and that doesn’t include the time we spend coordinating appointments and trying to make sense of our medical bills.

This community was created to help you reach your personal health goals so can keep doing what you love.

What is Self-Care?

Self-Care is a preventive health strategy involving actions and behaviors that improve, restore, or maintain good health. And for those who may be managing existing health conditions, self-care also includes preventing the progression of disease.

Health is a complex, interconnected system, and we’ve identified eight unique self-care dimensions that we feel represent total wellness:

The 8 Dimensions of Self-Care:8 Dimensions of Self-Care

Systemic – How we eat, move and rest
Emotive – How we express ourselves
Luminescent – How we illuminate our inner truth
Financial – How we allocate our resources
Cognitive – How we think
Aptitudinal – How we contribute to the world
Relational – How we connect with others
Environmental – How we harmonize with nature

These eight dimensions embody Living Upp’s core values, serving as the primary framework for our community.

In short, we create conditions for healthy living by serving as a support network that connects you with a variety of resources to help you reclaim ownership of your health.
