Why you should do something for yourself every day

With the conversation around mental health more transparent than ever, the term ‘self-care’ has become increasingly common. Instagram feeds are full of advice, imploring people to do what it takes to be in a good place mentally.

While it sounds straightforward, self-care is a process that requires attention and effort every single day. So, it’s important to understand the value of self-care and how it can be achieved.  

Self-care isn’t selfish

For a variety of reasons, many people don’t do anything just for them on a daily basis. They might be too busy, too tired, or too focused on others. They may even think they don’t deserve it and feel guilty about focusing solely on themselves.
