Building Your Self-Care Toolkit:

    • Identify Your Needs: Tune into your physical, mental, and emotional needs. What activities leave you feeling energised and rejuvenated? you can write these out of journal on them.
    • Mindfulness Matters: Train your mind to be present and accept your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Explore apps like Calm or Headspace, or simply focus on your breath for a few minutes each day. This works wonders.
    • Move Your Body: Exercise releases endorphins, natural mood-boosters that combat stress and anxiety. Find an activity you enjoy, whether it's dancing, walking, Pilates, running, gardening or yoga.
