A guide to self-care

'A guide to self-care' was developed by Everymind.

What is self-care?

Self-care refers to activities that preserve and maintain one’s physical, emotional and mental health. It is an ongoing commitment to look after yourself through helpful behaviours that protect your health during periods of stress.

Paying attention to what is happening to your body, both physically and emotionally, helps you to identify when something is affecting you. It is important to take time out when you need it to reduce feelings of stress and protect your mental health.

The self-care guide was redeveloped in 2023 in collaboration with Life in Mind Champions.
