Good health is not only defined merely by lack of illness. It includes the management of your wellbeing by prioritising self-care. The problem is that when life gets busy, self-care is the first thing to sacrifice. People often think that taking time for themselves during busy spells seems indulgent but looking after yourself will help you be productive and able to care for others. You don’t need to go to extremes. Small changes to your routine can make a big difference.

Here are three simple steps to help you spring clean your regime of self-care: 

Do a self-care audit: Prioritising self-care means paying attention to how you spend your time, handle your resources and maintain your environment. Think about what has worked for you in the past? How can you build upon your previous successes however small?

Ignite motivation: If you are worried about your health. What precisely would you like to improve? Setting a goal will motivate you to do something about it. What strengths do you have that can help you achieve this? How would it feel if you acted upon the answers to these questions?

Choose to act: What is the one thing that you could do immediately? On a scale of one to ten, how likely are you to stick at it? Aim for at least seven. Try to buddy up with someone like-minded. When it comes to wellbeing, social beats solo. The need for social distancing doesn't mean you can't encourage. What about checking in on how things are going by phone or text. You can also use apps to compare progress and celebrate improvements. Do one thing today that contributes to self-care and then do another tomorrow. Keep going until it becomes a habit.

Some of these ideas are simple and obvious yet it’s surprising how few people apply them daily. Investing time to think about your regime of self-care and then act to support your good health. Put them into practice and you’ll be astonished how much difference it can make to your overall wellbeing.
