Self-care is what we can do as individuals, taking small but simple steps each day to look after our mind, body and soul, and not waiting until we get sick.
We all know it’s important to take good care of ourselves so we are happier and healthier, but life can be very busy and ‘me-time’ is usually last on the agenda. Sometimes we can even feel guilty about taking the time required to take care of ourselves.
The Healthier Futures Programme is designed to support you to take time out. By helping to build your confidence, knowledge, skills and resilience, it will help you to recognise that taking time out is a positive investment in your own health and wellbeing.
Looking after yourself will not only help you feel better, it can also help to improve other areas of your life. This will have a beneficial effect on your work and play, as well as your relationships with friends and family.
Self-care is different for everyone - everyone has different needs. Are you ready to take this next step?
