To look after others, you must look after yourself. Consider these simple self-care practices:

Do something you love

Find some time (even if it’s only 10 minutes) every day to do something that you love.

Take a lunch break

It is not good for you to shove your lunch down your throat at your desk in a bid to be more productive.

Your favorite people

Surround yourself with people (or animals) you love and who love you in return.

Relax in the bath

Take a timeout to take the occasional relaxing bath. It’s okay to have ‘me time’.

Get enough sleep

Give yourself an early night or a late lie-in every now and then as a special treat.

Just say no

Don’t always take on unnecessary tasks that will cause you additional stress. Say no if you need to.

Exercise

Exercise benefits the body and mind, so it’s a good self-care practice.

Indulge yourself

Treat yourself to your favorite food items occasionally – everything in moderation!

Seize the moment

Don’t wait for a special occasion to use the fancy dinnerware. Any day can be a special occasion if you want it to.
