What is the Wellbeing Strategy Workshop?
Part of it is self care, but there are other factors involved. The focus here will be on self care. Self care is putting together a daily and weekly self care routine.
Self care is taking care of your mental, emotional and physical health by doing a series of practical things that will keep you functioning.
This should be included in your daily routine. Skincare should also be included in your routine because it is a part of your self care.
The skin is the largest organ in our body and therefore should not be neglected.
What will this look like?
Using different methods to improve or increase mood, reduce anxiety and avoid falling into a depressive state of mind.
Will it be the same for everyone?
No, we're all unique with different needs and thought processes. What may work for one person may be inappropriate or even not effective to someone else.
For example, some people may find nature, relaxing and therapeutic. A place to unwind.
Grounding - walking barefoot on sand and grass. Helps to relax the body & mind.
Where as others may find it boring and would prefer to do something more active like play a sport or go to the gym and be with other people.
Whatever works for you is fine. The important thing is to release stress, negative thoughts and emotions, because these are toxic to the body.
