One in four people experience a mental health problem of some kind, including anxiety and depression, according to the Mental Health Foundation. We know the symptoms and we know how it affects us. Sometimes we are more likely to talk about the weather than share our feelings or seek help. This is because there can be a stigma associated with a poorly mind.
Self-care involves understanding our individual needs and trying to keep in line with them which is a way of boosting resilience and providing a buffer against the stresses of life. Self-care is about anything that inspires, restores and improves your health. It's important not to feel guilty about having fun. Mindfulness also has a part to play in a person's wellbeing.
For the world that we live in "self-care has never been more important to us all".
