SELF-CARE

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Health -

What’s not to like? It’s what women have been telling each other to do for years, although we’re no­to­ri­ously bad at it. ‘None of us is im­mune to stress, fa­tigue or that in­ner crit­i­cal voice and self-care is about look­ing af­ter your head, heart and body and know­ing what’s good for you in the mo­ment,’ says char­tered psy­chol­o­gist Suzy Read­ing, au­thor of The

Self-care Rev­o­lu­tion (Aster). ‘It’s about nour­ish­ing mi­cro mo­ments through­out the day. I use the im­age of an en­ergy bank. Self-care tops up your en­ergy. If it de­pletes you, make an­other choice. It’s sim­ple things: don’t say “yes” when you re­ally mean “no”, be kind to your­self and do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.’
