The Building Blocks of Self-Care


We really dig this Hierarchy of Self-Care framework developed by The Wellthy Plate.

Practicing self-care, as with anything, is a process. You have to start with the fundamentals and build from there.

This framework gives us a Maslow’s-Hierarchy-of-Needs style visual, through the lens of wellness, to guide us how to grow our self-care muscle.

Below are details about each pillar (read from the bottom up).



Callie Exas and Brett Klein are Registered Dietitians based out of Brooklyn, NY. Together they opened The Wellthy Plate, a food first practice that aims to empower people by making nutrition the foundation of their self care.
