Your self-care practice is for your mind, body, and soul but what you need to take care of yourself will change throughout your lifetime. If your self-care practice feels overwhelming, unfulfilling and/or stressful, take some time and process your needs. Below is a Self-care Needs Plan that you can use to check in with yourself and update your self-care activities, routines, and practices.
Instructions: In each section, write down some self-care activities that you need to take care of yourself for each type of self-care. If you need support with this, read the Six Ways to Take Care of Yourself for examples of specific self-care activities.
