6. Empowering yourself through support and self-care

Developing a self-care plan

Take the time to create a self-care plan that helps you prevent or overcome negative feelings. Your plan can include engaging in a particular activity, spending time with a particular friend or focusing on a way of thinking—anything that comforts you and gives you a sense of well-being and stability. Make sure to engage in an activity that is nurturing and that gives you pleasure and/or fulfilment every day. Print out the form to create a self-care plan for yourself.
