GR: Self-care, 1st July

As all of you have probably seen, here on RO we absolutely love promoting the concept of self-care! There's a lot of content on the website about how to practice self-care and why it's so important! But what is self-care? And how can we incorporate it into our daily routine?

 

 

 

(There's an awesome article here about being awesome at taking care of yourself too, for those of you interested!) 

 

Life can get pretty hectic at times, and it can be difficult to know when it's time to take a step back and do something for yourself to keep yourself physically and mentally at your best Heart

 

I think the picture below sums it up pretty well...

But if you're keen to learn a bit more about when it's time to practice some self-care, how to do so, or even just to share your favourite chill-out tips with everyone, then join us for our GR on self-care on Monday the 1st of July at 7:30pm AEDT, for our live chat! Hope to see you then!

What self-care means to me is more than taking some time out to "chill out". It is a habit/ritual that is just as important as sleeping and eating to ensure we can function properly and stay healthy Smiley Happy

Very excited for this GR and looking forward to what others have to say Smiley Very Happy

 

Question 1: What does self-care mean to you? How is it different from just taking time to chill out?

For me, self care is actually taking the time out of my day to properly focus on what I need for myself and taking care of myself; even if it's just making my bed so that I feel more relaxed when I fall asleep, it can really help with my mental wellbeing. 

Taking time to just chill out can be really helpful towards self-care, but its also about being present and in the moment rather than being distracted with something else. Self care is about caring (funny that Smiley Tongue) for yourself and making time to do so; setting aside everything else that is going on in your life and just focusing on you in the present moment.

Re: GR: Self-care, 1st July

Welcome @Esperanza67!

Could not agree more, self care is such an important part of routine!

Question 1: What does self-care mean to you? How is it different from just taking time to chill out? For me, self care is about looking after all parts of my wellbeing- it's more about making time for the things that make me feel renewed in my day, and giving my body and mind time to wind down and reconnect
