What Is Self Care?

Do you often hear or read the term “self care” and are not sure what it means?

It simply means: taking care of oneself—looking after oneself mentally, physically and emotionally.

Of course, this can be different for everyone.

So what sort of things can we do?

Here’s a list I found on BMI Healthcare’s website:

  1. Get a good night’s sleep
  2. Drink lots of water
  3. Go for a brisk walk
  4. Take a relaxing bath
  5. Say no to something you don’t want to do
  6. Listen to your favourite music
  7. Watch your favourite film
  8. Make something healthy yet delicious for dinner
  9. Make a list of five or more things you like about yourself
  10. Spend time with loved ones 

 I’m sure we could add more things to this list. Do you have any ideas?
