Self care encompasses the things individuals can do to protect their health and manage illness. The social determinants of health – the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age – influence our resistance to illness and disease, as well as our ability to self care. There is a risk that without easily accessible support and advice the advantages of self care will only be felt by higher socioeconomic groups.
To make self care simpler for you we bring to you few activities that you can do for a weekly self care :
Eat Well & Nourish : Set the tone for your week. Prepare your nourishing meals & snacks. Sip on hot water with lemon.
Tech Detox & Find Your Creativity : Put your phone & computer away. Journal and create an intentious calendar. Read more books, do adult colouring and DIY crafts.

The self care options available will vary depending on the nature of the issue, condition, or ailment. It is important that people wanting to self care have access to quality advice and information, at the right time, together with the right support. While there is a vast amount of medical information on the internet that can help patients make informed decisions about their healthcare, some information is of variable quality and intent. Seek help from a counsellor or a psychologist to choose a program more suitable for you.
