“Self-Care–a Key to living a Stress Free & Balanced Life”

Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept, it’s something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others.

There’s a direct correlation between a positive attitude and better relationships, superior health, and greater success. Some studies show that personality traits like optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of our health and well-being. The positive thinking that typically comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. A positive attitude can boost your energy, heighten your inner strength, inspire others, and prepares us to meet difficult challenges. Physical fitness is a major contributor to being healthy; being healthy also means being mentally and emotionally fit which physical exercise can support. Living a healthy lifestyle can help prevent chronic diseases and long-term illnesses.
Feeding our body nourishing food helps us to always feel our best and remove the worries of disease and poor health. Exercise relieves the daily stresses of life, it releases endorphins, and fights anxiety. Practicing meditation completes the bigger picture!

In Ethiopia where 46% of us suffer from some kind of mental illness, it becomes more than ever crucial to look into our life style and support system. AWiB finds it timely to have conversation on the malaise of our society in order to heal ourselves and choose a healthy life style.

Self-care needs to be something we actively plan, rather than something that just happens. It is an active choice and we must treat it as such. Join us to be informed. An informed citizen saves itself and its nation.

Talking Points:

1. How does our community support living a healthy lifestyle?
2. What is our health status report as a nation?
3. Where do you start?
4. Who do you involve in your healthy living regiments?
5. What do you need as a support mechanism?
6. What can physical exercise do for you that others like yoga can’t?
7. If you can’t afford gym or not convenient, what other choices can you make to maintain a healthy life? New development in physical exercise?
8. What is a healthy living?
9. What programs in town are available to help us with healthy living?
