Shaping your Self Care Routine
On today’s episode, as part of Self-Care September, I talk about creating, adapting and having a routine to support your self-care.
The term self-care often has a bad reputation or a response that invokes a big sigh!
What I mean by self-care is taking practical action to look after your physical, mental and social wellbeing, and doing this regularly helps us during times of stress and builds resilience.
