March spotlight: let's get real

This month is all about mythbusting for better wellbeing, from burnout and balance to brain menace and emotional regulation. Join us for some straightforward conversations and learn ways to thrive at work.

How to get real about looking after yourself

Spotlight on: getting real about looking after yourself

Meaningful self-care is different for everyone. What works for some else to recharge and fill up the tank, may not work for you. Here are some ways you add self-care that suits you into your everyday routine.

Know yourself

What makes you tick? What activities make you feel your best? Take the time to learn about what gets the endorphins flowing or makes you feel, ‘ahh, that’s better’.

Make up a handy list of activities that you know will make you feel good.

Be diligent

Once you know what works for you make sure you schedule (if necessary) the time to do at least one of these activities every day.

Consistency is the key when it comes to self-care – it needs to be practised daily.
