What is self-care? taking care of yourself, your body, your mind and most importantly your health. This is your go-to place for simple tips and ideas about how to enhance your mental and physical wellbeing. It is about actions you can take to be healthier with your lifestyle, to prevent illness as well as to care for any ongoing health condition.

Self-care is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the ability to take actions to improve self-health and wellbeing. This can be done with everyday small but meaningful actions like:

– undertaking a small yet soothing personal activity such as taking a hot, relaxing bath to help you take care of your body

– starting an anti-stress activity such as a walk or light jog in the park, a yoga session or even playing your preferred music

– trying to plan and prepare your favourite healthy meal to greatly boost your moral and nurture your body.

Self-care is the cornerstone of your health allowing you to prevent disease, maintain your health or even help you cope with any chronic illness.
