Self Care

Self Care

It can be hard to find the time to look after ourselves – but it is key to feeling positive and being physically and mentally healthy.

If you aren’t looking after yourself well, if you feel overloaded, or are lacking sleep, it can be very hard to manage strong feelings and challenges. Your resilience takes a dip when you don’t eat well or you drink too much, so self-care is actually key to achieving health and happiness in life.
