Today I spoke about self-care on Dr Stephanie Azri’s hub about the importance of self-care.

Self-care allows us to recharge our bodies, have a positive relationship with ourselves, re-energise our batteries for others, be better prepared for tasks such as work, study or family commitment.

I keep hearing from my clients and the clinicians I supervise that they don’t have time or money to self-care, so I thought it might be important to stress strategies to self-care in a way that is free, quick and fun. There is a whole chapter dedicated to self-care in my new book “Unlock your resilience“, and most of the tips suggested are FREE.

For example, my favorite self-care strategy is my Saturday morning routine. I have a shower (IN PEACE), wash my hair, exfoliate with $2 gloves from the cheap shop, blow dry my hair and put gloss on. This takes a whole thirty minutes and makes me feel like a million dollars.

Some people I know just listen to podcasts on their way to work, go for a walk in the morning, play with their pet or treat themselves to a yummy hot chocolate.

Here are some things you might want to try:

  • Exercise
  • Eat nutritious food
  • Get your hair done
  • Meet up with friends
  • Have a shower
  • Go for a run/walk
  • Write in your diary
  • Read a magazine/Book
  • Call a friend
  • Attend a workshop/Webinar
  • Buy yourself a treat
  • Stand up for yourself
  • Be kind to yourself
  • Surround yourself with positivity
  • Hug your kids or someone you care about
  • Punch someone you hate ahahah KIDDING
