Today’s tip is to make time for you!

It is easy to lose sight of what you need when you are under pressure but you are important too.

Making time to look after your own needs isn’t all about treats or doing something nice. It can also involve prioritising self-care. When we are tired, hungry or distracted it is harder to function and this can cloud our thoughts adding to our stress. It might be going to bed slightly earlier, taking a bath or spending time on something you enjoy.

We all need a treat sometimes and a bit more self-kindness.

Stuck for ideas: what hobbies or crafts do you enjoy? Could you join a group for art, crafts or exercise? You could phone or visit a friend? How about listening to your favourite music, maybe even sing or play along. Our events and activities calendar can be found here
