Self Care week reminds us that we need to be kinder to ourselves. It reminds us to build our own resilience to handing what life throws at us.  It is a reminder to put ourselves first. It reminds us of the importance of doing so continuously, in the same way that we would fuel our car. Don’t leave yourself depleted! Value yourself much, much more.

Pressure, challenge, discomfort will always be in our lives in some form and pressure for one person might be an exciting and motivating opportunity for someone else. It affects us all differently. But life happens and without taking conscious measures of how we deal with it, can manifest, at worse, into ill-health. So it’s beneficial to try to take a proactive approach to learning  to take better care of ourselves. Not just when we’re feeling rubbish or burnout, but all the time and improving the culture around our own self-care.

What are the things you tend to stop doing when you are feeling time poor or under-pressure? Whatever that is for you, start doing them again!

You’ll be hearing much more from me about self-care, but for now, here’s some really simple ideas to inject a little TLC into your weekend this week.

What are you doing this weekend to look after number one and take care of yourself?

Something for you

Aside from some mediation and de-cluttering (lol) One of the things I love doing, is giving to others. It’s scientifically proven that by giving to others can also give a boost in our own wellbeing. Probably one of the many reasons why I enjoy being part of the Bags of Kindness group and why I love Christmas so much! SO Since it’s the season of giving, I am giving away a surprise box of carefully selected pick me ups, treats and self-care goodies, for one lucky reader. Yes. Yes I am.


Just comment with your name and email below or comment on this post on Facebook by Sunday the 27th November at 5pm (GMT), to be in with a chance of grabbing aa surprise treat! Winners will be selected randomly and announced on social media on Monday 28th November 2016.
