Self-love is in the air this Valentine’s Day season! We encourage you to take active steps in taking care of your mental health and well-being every day of the year. Taking the time to care for yourself (which can look different for everybody) is not only necessary but can have positive outcomes. For example, I practice self-love by writing in my journal and reflecting on what is happening in my life. When I do this, I notice my anxiety and stress levels dramatically decrease and am able to focus better.
Wellness encompasses several different dimensions. They include: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social, occupational, environmental, intellectual, and financial. Here at the Financial Wellness Center, we believe each of us should take time to prioritize our physical and emotional well-being. When we focus on these wellness aspects, we are simultaneously bettering our financial state and needs!
Practice self-love this Valentine’s day (and really the entire year) by completing these activities!
