Fear and anxiety can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Learning how to cope with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger. Research tells us that children and adults benefit greatly from consistent and deliberate self-care activities. Learning how to take care of ourselves regularly will help ensure that we have the skills to manage future stressors in healthy and effective ways. Doing self-care activities not only helps cultivate good habits, it also helps the mind and body operate at their best. Making self-care a priority equips us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to care more authentically and enthusiastically for others.
