The theme this year is “Exercise Self Care for Life”
Self Care Week is an annual national awareness week that focuses on establishing support for self-care across communities, families and generations. The Self Care Forum recommends self-care as a way to keep you healthy and happy.
Support mental wellness by keeping connected, speak and meet with friends and family, take vitamin D supplements, as the daylight hours has decreased, ensure you have good nutrition and take regular exercise to support general wellbeing.
Self-care is recommended when you have a minor condition that can be treated at home, without medical care (from a doctor or nurse).
Common conditions that you can self-care yourself can be:
Coughs and colds
Sprain and strains
The pharmacist or a clinical pharmacist, can help you with all of these conditions, with no need to see a doctor. Take care of your mental health. Talk to your friends about how you’re feeling, go for a walk and breathe fresh air, write three good things that you did/felt every day or play a fun sport.
