Self care is about looking after and taking care of yourself - in a healthy way. It's about finding beneficial ways of coping. Whether it’s brushing your teeth every day, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, self-care activities are ways that help maintain your health. While they may seem little and unimportant, they actually add up and can have a long term impact on how you feel.
