Self-care is action we can take for ourselves to help us improve, nurture, and safeguard our mental health and wellbeing.

However, often when we are going through a tough time and our self-esteem is low, we struggle to feel worthy of doing nice things for ourselves, let alone fine the motivation to do something about how we are feeling.

It's time like these that self-care can feel like a selfish thing to do.

But please, let us reassure you that self-care is far from that! It is, in fact, essential. We can't be anything for anyone else if we don't take care of ourselves first.

Think about a plant: if it goes unwatered and does not get enough sunlight, it is sure to wilt. Always remember to look after yourself. You deserve it, but more importantly, you need it!
