How do you do self-care?

What is self-care?

Self-care refers to the things we do to look after ourselves. Self-care is incredibly important to ensure that we are living our best, more fulfilling lives. It takes account of our physical and mental health, as without one, we cannot fully have the other.

What self-care activities can I do?

There are so many activities you could choose from, and it depends on what you enjoy. You need to choose activities that feel comfortable for you. You might like of these examples below:

  • Get regular, good quality sleep
  • Eat healthily
  • Do a hobby you enjoy
  • Express gratitude e.g. with a gratitude journal
  • Take lunch breaks at work
  • Spend time in nature
  • Take long baths
  • Go to a spa
  • Pamper yourself
