What does self love mean?

So what does self love mean? It’s a lot of different things, but all with the same goal of paying better attention to our own emotional health to make life’s challenges less overwhelming.

How to practice self care

By getting into the driving seat of your emotional self care, you’ll find that your physical health improves too. When we’re less mentally drained and emotionally taxed, we often have more energy for things like exercise and socialising. Improving your mental health with a good self-care routine will make stress and anxiety easier to manage and make you feel better across all areas of your life. Sometimes this can start with learning how to be more assertive, or it can mean changing our feelings around the things we engage with every day.

How to protect your mental health online & on social media
