How I Practice Self-Care
My name is Grace, I am a wife and mother, and I work as a full-time content creator. I also live with sickle cell disease.
One of the many ways that I stay healthy while living with sickle cell disease is by being intentional about my self-care. Self-care to me is extremely important because it is one of the many ways I deal with my stress.
Avoiding triggers through self-care
For me, mental/ emotional stress is one of my main triggers for a sickle cell crisis, so if I can find ways to reduce it I have to be intentional.
- Me time
- Counseling or therapy
- Date nights
