Self-care refers to the things that we can do ourselves to look after our mental health and wellbeing. We’ve put some ideas together to get you thinking about what you can do to look after yourself. Anything that makes you feel happy, calm, relaxed or joyful can help with your self-care. When we practice regular self-care, we are less likely to experience stress overload from the daily stressors we face.
We are all different and what works for some of us won’t work for others. The good news is that there are many options when it comes to self-care activities, so give some of these a try and see how you get on.
