Self Care by Sonia Moloney

Self Care

by See Change Ambassador, Sonia Moloney

 

What self-care looks like for me is often what the majority of people would expect self-care to look like: so ordering a takeaway, watching a movie, playing video games, maybe reading a book, not answering messages or phone calls –  just really turning off for the day. For the most part that’s what my self-care is made up of and that’s what the majority of people perceive self-care to be and for the most part that would be correct.

But there is self-care in the every day for me; that’s making sure I drink enough water, eating at least 3 meals a day, limiting my social media intake especially now with the current situation, reducing my time on my phone and technology, getting a good night’s sleep, attending my counselling sessions even when I feel like I don’t want to, doing some mindfulness as well as making sure I go to training or get some form of exercise every day in order to help my mental health .
