Everyone needs to practice self-care, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from. Naturally, we are huge advocates of self-care as it is can have the most impressive effect on your mental health. We thought therefore that we would put together The Wonder Self-Care Journal filled with our go to activities. We’re also going to be hopefully adding our Guest Authors and interviewees to the mix!

What is Self-Care?

Self-Care is absolutely anything that you do to look after yourself. This can be something that helps you physically, such as eating good, healthy food, or it could be an activity that brings you peace and eases your emotional and mental state. In short self-care is something you do for you!

Why is it important?

Without self-care we just plod along, not really thinking, and in some cases, not caring about ourselves. It is easy to do when our mental health is not great because invariably the first thing we sacrifice is our self-care.

It is important not just so that our mental health is kept in a good state, but our physical health as well. If we do not keep our physical, mental and emotional health in check, they all can impact each other having a knock on effect, like dominoes cascading. Ignore one and the rest will be negatively effected, then it can become a vicious cycle that feels difficult to escape.
