There are a lot of things you can do to look after yourself. Just as we look after our physical health, it’s important to look after our mental health. In fact the two are very closely connected.
Self-care is all about what you can do to help yourself feel better or to keep yourself feeling good. It’s a way that we can look after our own mental health and wellbeing. Everyone’s approach to self-care will look different. What works for you might not work for others. There are lots of different self-care strategies so you can try out different ones until you find something that works for you. The main thing is to find things you enjoy. Playing football, listening to music, reading. Sometimes having a long bath can be relaxing. Whatever works for you.
