6. Empowering yourself through support and self-care


Self-reflection activity: Self-care

Think about something in your life that brings you meaning, joy, fulfilment or that restores you.

How could you use this activity or item to improve your self-care?


When you do not care for yourself, you become vulnerable to poor physical and emotional health. Even when your relative is not doing well, it is still important for you to look after yourself and pursue your own interests, hobbies or activities. Take steps toward creating, regaining or maintaining your own physical, emotional, social and spiritual health and well-being. Self-care activities, such as relaxing, playing, laughing, sleeping and eating have many positive effects on the body, mind, emotions and spirit.
