Self Care Quick Quiz

Self care isn't a new idea but it is emerging as an important part of caring for ourselves as the demands of life, work and families increase. When you think about all of the hours you put into doing things for others, it stands to reason that you would need to do some things for yourself. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy, so they say. If you're working 38 hours or more, travelling anywhere up to 2 hours to work and back each day, sleeping supposedly 8 hours a night and finding time for your family in between, the need for self-care, and maybe even self indulgence, would be pretty high.

Finding the right self care for you may be a bit tricky if you don't have a lot of knowledge about what self care actually is. So here's an explanation: Self care is a way of intentionally spending time doing something you enjoy that rejuvenates, revives and renews your energy, to improve your personal resources for coping with life. It may be a personal activity, a shared activity or simply a time of quietness and rest.

The following quiz gives you a list of self-care activities. Next to each activity, circle the number 1 if you have experienced the activity before, circle the number if you know someone who has expeienced the activity and circle the number 3 if you would like to experience the activity.
