The Importance of Self-Care
What is self-care?
The Young Minds website suggests:
‘In its simplest form, self-care is just the little things we do to look after our own mental health. It’s about trying to listen to how we are feeling and understanding what we need, even if it’s difficult, so we can care for ourselves.
This could mean taking a timeout when we’re feeling overwhelmed; it could mean making time to do an activity that we know makes us feel good; or it could be as simple as making sure to do the basics like eating and sleeping well when we’re struggling.’
