Self-care has gotten to be a buzzword in the last few years. It’s defined simply as looking after one’s own health and well-being. It is a way to combat stressors, promote health, and cope with illness or disability.  

Self-care is not just for women!

In contrast to the belief of some, self-care is not selfish. It is not only for the mentally or physically ill.

I know that was a lot. Here are some tips to make a self-care plan!

2. Start small by introducing ONE thing a week 

3. Build up to doing that thing every day for 7 days 

4. Reflect. How does it make you feel? 

5. Add more when you are ready. 

6. Get support from a therapist, or a close friend or family.
