Self Care

Looking after yourself mentally and physically are priorities for a healthy and happy life. A well looked after body and mind produces positive feelings, encourages confidence and boosts self-esteem as well as increasing energy levels and reducing stress.

Self-care is not a one off occurrence, it is something that should be practised on a daily basis eventually becoming a habit for the rest of your life. 

SELF CARE TIPS

  1. Eat a varied, healthy diet and drink at least 2 litres of water each day. 
  2. Keep a good bedtime routine. Sleep is essential to recharge our batteries.
  3. Exercise regularly. Exercise releases endorphins, a natural ‘feel good’ hormone. 
  4. Make time for personal hobbies and pastimes. Doing things you love keeps you motivated and enthusiastic.   
  5. Look yourself and your hygiene. Have a shower, do your hair, feeling good about ones appearance helps us build confidence.
  6. Avoid drugs and alcohol. These may make your feel better in the short-term, but in the long-term, they can make you feel a lot worse and create other problems.
  7. Talk. Talking is very important, whether it be with friends and family, therapists and doctors or with charities like No Panic. Keeping things bottled up always makes them worse, so get your worries/thoughts of your chest.
  8. Be kind to yourself. Don’t beat yourself up if things don’t go to plan, everything will be okay.
  9. Be positive. Wake up in the morning and think of 5 positive things in your life and do the same when you go to bed at night. Surround yourself with positive people/influences. Clean up your social media feed by getting rid of any negative posters.
  10. Breathe. Learn to meditate or practice mindfulness. Both of these reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Correct breathing is a skill, learn how to do this with our short animation. ​Breathing animation​​​
