Mindful Self-Care Scale Assessment

Water droplet.

The Mindful Self-Care Scale (MSCS) is intended to help individuals identify areas of strength and weakness in self-care behavior, as well as interventions that serve to improve self-care. The scale addresses ten domains of self-care: nutrition/hydration, exercise, soothing strategies, self-awareness/mindfulness, rest, relationships, physical and medical practices, environmental factors, self-compassion, and spiritual practices. There are also three general items to assess the individual’s general or more global practices of self-care.
