A guide to prioritising yourself and practicing self care after cancer.
Join Life after Cancer coach Steph in a workshop on how to prioritise yourself and practice self care in your life after cancer treatment.
Welcome to our self care workshop. Today we're going to spend 15 minutes or so creating your very own personal self-care plan.
Self-care is when you take the time to take care of yourself. It is anything that you enjoy doing that helps make you happy and maintains your physical, mental or emotional health.
Taking any time that you can for self-care is really important, especially now.
Think about your phone when the battery is low.
You don't punish your devices when the batteries deplete and they need recharging.
We often do not allow ourselves the same compassion and understanding when our own energy levels deplete and we need to recharge.
“Self-compassion is a way of emotionally recharging our batteries. Rather than becoming drained by helping others, self-compassion allows us to fill up our internal reserves, so that we have more to give to those who need us.” ― Kristin Neff
You’ll leave the workshop with clarity around what you need in order to feel 100%, a self-care plan and some actions that will support you to feel your best and help you to be kinder and more gentle with yourself.
