Taking time to care for yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically so that you can perform your best is what self-care is all about.

- Some students may go on a run because it clears their mind and keeps them energized to study for a big exam.
- Other students may watch a quick episode of something on Netflix to take a break from writing a paper.
Self-care may even involve things you normally need to do like preparing meals that give you proper nutrition or sleeping eight hours to ensure you are well rested. How do you practice self-care?
