How often do you put others before yourself even when you are tired and know that you need to look after yourself? It is hard to get the balance right without being selfish but if your self care is in place you will be stronger and in a better position to cope with life and to be there for others.

Your well being is important so try to do the following:

  • Eat healthily and drink wisely e.g. lots of water and not too much alcohol.
  • Exercise regularly – whatever gets your endorphins going e.g. brisk walk, jogging, going to the gym, swimming.
  • Get enough sleep/rest.
  • Understand what helps you e.g. being with family and friends, pursuing hobbies, going on holiday.
  • Listen to your body and try not to ignore the warning signs of physical ailments that are telling you to slow down.
  • Relax by taking a bath, having a massage etc.
  • Have time on your own.
