Hunger’s toll is life-changing. Food insecurity can lead to Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. Family members in food-insecure households are also more likely to struggle with psychological and behavioral health issues as well.
“Self-care exists on a spectrum,” said Kelly Rivadeneyra, LCSW, Assistant Director of the Mental Health Center at Nutley Family Service Bureau (NFSB). “For some people, self-care involves more indulgent ways to take care of oneself, like a massage, although massage certainly has therapeutic benefits. Also on that spectrum is the practice of small daily habits that offer delayed gratification, like taking a walk or practicing deep breathing.”
