Are you feeling down in the dumps, been running around after everybody else or just a little run down?

Nowadays, with everything going on in the world, our economy and our home/work life, it’s become even harder to really take care of ourselves.

Because of all the stress we deal with daily, it becomes even harder to listen to our body.

Often we are so busy taking care of other people, that we neglect the basic needs of our body and mind.

When somebody says Self Care, what does that mean?

When someone practises self care, they are making their emotional, physical and mental health a priority.

Self-care is a form of activity that you should want to do and not something that feels forced.

Practising Self-Care is NOT selfish and you shouldn’t be made to feel that way.

After all, how can you effectively look after someone else, if you can’t first take care of yourself.

Why Self-Care is so important?

Self-care becomes even more important whenever you feel overwhelmed, stressed and disconnected from everything.

Everyone around the world at some time or another will feel like this and practising Self Care is not only soothing but essential.

Prioritising this aspect of your life is just as important as work, your business or looking after others.

Having a great Self Care routine, will leave you feeling recharged and refuelled to continue your day/ week in the best shape.

Self-care means different things to different people, that is clear.

Which is why I have created a whopping list of 80, yes 80, activities you can do to really take care of yourself during this difficult time.

All of these self-care activities you can do at home and should be just what you need!

Implement these small activities into your daily life and see the change in your mental and physical health.
