Holistic Self-Care Definition

What does holistic mean, anyway?

Chances are you’ve heard this word before, but what does it really mean?

By definition, holistic means relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts.

That means that a holistic self-care practice encompasses your entire being, as mentioned above.

We cannot seek to improve parts of ourselves without addressing and taking inventory of our whole self. That’s where holistic self-care can help.

When it comes to a holistic self-care practice, it’s important to note that I believe there are three parts to self-care:

  1. Physical
  2. Emotional
  3. Spiritual. 

These three types of self-care can combine to create your unique holistic self-care practice.

Unique is a very important word when it comes to self-care because we all have different needs and requirements for happiness. Digging in and discovering what’s important to your wellbeing is essential, all while keeping in mind that your self-care practice could look completely different than your friend’s.

That’s the beauty of self-care.

To create a well-rounded holistic self-care practice, focus on adding in components from each of the three self-care types.
