With all of the uncertainty happening in the world today, you might be thinking of how you can best show love to the people who mean the most in your life, but how often do you prioritize showing yourself some love? Self-love and self-care are both crucial to not only mental, but physical health as well. The World Health Organization defines health as, “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.” In today’s busy age, self-love is often overlooked. Work, school and family life seem to always take first priority, but self-care is crucial to your own well-being. Self-love looks different for everyone - to some, it may mean meditating, to others it could be taking an actual vacation. Whatever the case may be, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has multiple tools that will help you practice self-love.
