Self Care Week 2015
Established by the NHS, this year’s Self Care Week takes place from November 16th to 22nd. It’s a really important initiative that helps to remind us of the importance of on-going healthcare, and how simple things like eating healthier and visiting the doctors can help to prevent serious illness and long-term health problems.
“Self care for life”
This year’s theme is “Self care for life” and aims to help everyone take control of their health throughout their whole life. This means encouraging better understand minor ailments and long-term conditions and how to prevent ill health by choosing healthy options for good mental and physical wellbeing.
We’re all responsible
At the heart of Self Care Week is a simple philosophy that at a basic level we are all responsible for our own health. Whilst we do live in a world where sometimes our well-being is beyond our control, it’s always important to remember to that we all have what it takes to build safer and healthier lifestyles.
Whether that involves losing weight, eating healthier, cutting down on alcohol or stopping smoking, there’s always something we can do to live a more caring life.
