To write about the care of the self is to engage in a discussion that is simultaneously very private and very public. Take first the personal elements of self-care. We all have views about what it means to look after our body, our emotional and mental wellbeing, and our spiritual welfare. Consciously or unconsciously, some of us may privilege one of these domains over others, while some may seek to balance them holistically. Our views on self-care may or may not coincide with actual practices, and both views and practices will change over time according to context and setting. In this sense, self-care is highly personal and contingent.
