You Don’t Exercise
This is one of the more serious symptoms of poor self-care, as it can directly affect your well-being on an emotional and physical level. Lack of exercise boosts the likelihood of negative health effects developing, reduces quality of life, and harms your appearance.
Simple exercise - such as walking - performed just 3 times weekly can help you maintain a healthy body weight and body composition, and is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
You Feel Life Is A Chore
The final symptom, that sums up the disregard you have for yourself and your situation is your lack of joy. Living brings you no real pleasure; you’re just going through the motions of life, without truly finding joy in the day-to-day moments.
You don’t stop to take in the views when you're out in the car, you don’t experience joy from little things your kids or grandkids may do, and only look forward to going to bed. Feeling as if life has no real purpose for you can not only make you sad, but can kickstart a cycle of negativity which can, in turn, spiral into depression.
