Looking after our well-being is extremely important for our overall health. To look after your well-being, you could do up a self care plan, think of different exercises that you find beneficial, book in some appointments for your well-being – counselling, acupuncture, physiotherapy, massage etc. (remember if you have health benefits from work you may be able to expense some of the cost of these appointments). Spending time with people and building connections with people can also be a way of looking after your well-being.
