Barbara Geoghegan for BuzzFeed NewsTherapists are trained to help clients with their big, life-upending challenges, but they are also trained to help clients with the tiny, everyday things they can do to keep themselves emotionally and physically healthy. We call those things self-care skills the little activities, like getting enough sleep or finding a safe space to express negative emotions, that often fall by the wayside when were under duress. As a therapist I can advocate for self-care skills all day long but as a human being with an aversion to corniness, I always really hated that term.
