Self-Care: A Guide to Boosting Wellbeing

Self care is not a selfish act; it's a vital ingredient for a balanced, happy life. Self care is about giving time to our own mental and physical wellbeing. As Autumn arrives, it's the perfect time to recommit to nurturing yourself. Whether, it's a leisurely stroll in nature, reading a book from the library or connecting with a friend, self-care is about investing in your own wellbeing.

Join us as we explore the art of self-care. We've gathered top tips from the Wellbeing Enterprises team to help you prioritise yourself and rejuvenate your spirit. So, let's embark on this journey together and rediscover the joy of taking care of yourself.

"Making time for yourself is important to your overall wellbeing. Why not take some time out to listen to your favourite album? You could also schedule in time to do some exercise, for example, going for a run or walk can be a great way to relieve stress and clear your mind"
Matt, Wellbeing Link Worker

"Pick a time that's just for you and stick to it. A way I like to relax is to play football so I make sure that time is always free on Sundays. Exercise is a great way to self care"

Mike, Wellbeing Link Worker

"Sometimes self care can be about doing your favourite things. A nice skin care / facemask or even just a duvet day watching your favourite Netflix series can really give your wellbeing a boost"

Ellie, Wellbeing Link Worker

"You can practise self care every day if you make time just for you. It's a time to be able to stop for a moment, reflect and do things for your wellbeing. For example, you might like to talk to a friend on the phone, go on a walk or take some time to read a book"
Beth, Senior Wellbeing Link Worker

"One thing which can be effective for self care is journaling. Noting down your thoughts and feelings from the day, for example, writing down three things you are grateful for. It can really help focus the mind and boost wellbeing."
Jade, Wellbeing Link Worker

"There's lots of things you can do for your self care, it's about finding what works for you and the making sure you schedule in time for it. Remember to be as kind to yourself as you would a loved one.
