Canyon Park Blog is here to help you get set for the summer by addressing the topic of stress. It’s something we live with every day, but were you aware of how it can affect your life? This month, we encourage you to think about self-care as a gift to yourself! Keep reading to understand a little bit better about why self-care is the best thing you could do for your well-being this month. 

Burnout Prevention 

One of the least enjoyable feelings is reaching the point where something you’re doing is stretching you so thin that you are convinced the only way out is to give up. Spending time taking care of yourself and your personal needs throughout stress-inducing times can help you steer clear of this unenjoyable phenomenon entirely. Burning out doesn’t help anyone, you can’t serve water out of an empty pitcher, so be sure you refill yours, metaphorically speaking.  


A hefty dose of concentration and focus can only go so far before it runs out; at a certain point, it’s time to take a break. Plus, spending break time doing something you enjoy is a form of self-care! Relaxing and thinking good thoughts about yourself won’t just feel good during your brief recess, but it will also help you to recharge your batteries and focus more intently afterward.

Stress Reduction

In healthy doses, stress is vital for progress and growth. However, there comes a point when too much stress is bound to drag you down. By becoming aware of your personal needs and attending to them, even when every day feels just like the previous one, you can reduce unnecessary stress in your life and foster a better environment for happiness and improvement.
