Self Care Week Reminds us to Live Self Care for Life

Self Care Week is the annual national event that aims to raise awareness of what we can do to improve our physical health and mental wellbeing. This year’s theme is Live Self Care For Life.

Group of people stood outside next to tree painted with 'Live Self Care For Life' slogan.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, there is lots you can do to self-care and it's arguably more important than ever.

This message is particularly important in these trying times, and organisers, the Self Care Forum, believes it is crucial that we do all we can for ourselves, our families and our colleagues to live as healthily as possible to keep up our resolve and to be able to cope with whatever comes our way. 

Self Care Week is a time to take stock and make small changes that will help us take care of us. 

There is a guide available with mood boosting tips and the Every Mind Matters website also has a number of ways that young people in particular can self-care during lockdown.
