Self care and you!

In the past couple of months, the word self-care has popped up in many places. There are different definitions to self-care. What it all comes down is taking a proactive role in putting yourself as a priority, being mindful of your personal needs, so you can better support those around you. When you can take care of yourself, this results in less stress and you can then better meet the needs of others.

There are many forms of self-care. Examples include, but not limited to, taking a couple of minutes to pause and reset; perhaps practice meditation and breath work; etc.

Over the next few weeks, we will focus on self-care through the concept of the 6- dimensions of wellness. Stay tuned and check back weekly to learn what each dimension is about.

Brown County is invested in the health and well-being of its residents. Community partners are working together to
create real change in the culture of our community by
focusing on moving the needle on our communities’ health and well-being.

We believe young, old, athletes, persons with disabilities,
people of all races, ethnicities, and religions, persons of
wealth and those who struggle to meet their bills, all people deserve equal access to community resources that promote health and well-being. Together, we can make that a reality.

So many initiatives, so little time. Collectively we can do so
much more. We can share the story. We can all do our part.
