How Reading Tarot Cards Can Help You With Anxiety, Uncertainty, Stress & More

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – This is not always “the most wonderful time of the year” for lots of people who deal with anxiety or stress or depression or family issues (which is basically all of us). A new op-ed written this week by a medical doctor for the American Academy of Family Physicians includes the results of two nationwide surveys about self care. One of the key findings: doctors say seven in ten patients would benefit from discussing self care with them, but 75 percent of patients say they haven’t talked about any self care with their doctor in the past two years.

What is self care? PsychCentral.com defines self care as any activity we do deliberately to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. Some self care ideas include: doing something that used to make you happy as a kid – like coloring or ice skating. Spending time alone – maybe that means browsing a bookstore. Or, practicing guided meditation or mindfulness – there are plenty of apps you can download for that.

Our question of the night: what’s your favorite form of self care?
