It was an incredible honor to be published in the January 2017 edition of The Costco Connection, where I asserted that self-care is multidimensional. Indeed, self-care is a powerful, yet often underutilized, tool that involves actions and behaviors that improve, restore, and maintain good health.
Before we can fully love and care for others, we must sufficiently care of ourselves first. Otherwise, we’re unable to be in service. But when we’re healthy, we have more to give; it’s that simple.
And while self-care is multidimensional, it’s also very personal. What refills your cup may not refill mine, which means that each of us must explore a variety of activities to build a restorative self-care practice that is right for us.
Here’s an overview of Living Upp’s 8-dimensional self-care framework:
The 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
Because we have so many , it’s easy to see that self-care is multidimensional.
