Are your physical, mental, and emotional needs being met? If you’re not sure, this Self-Care Checklist can help you identify areas where you should spend more time.

Physical health includes getting enough sleep, nutrition, and physical activity. Mental health means reducing stress, finding ways to relax, and making time for things you want to do. Emotional health includes having enough time for companionship, working through feelings, and having support. For ideas about ways to make sure all these needs are met, check out our article Self-Care Plan Ideas.
