Feelings, both physical sensations and emotions, are an integral part of self-care. In fact they are the clues that let you know what self-care you need. Whether it’s pain, fatigue, anxiety or stress, if you don’t know what it means and what you can do about it, you’re not able to find your way forward. Self-care is knowing what you need, when you need it and being able to do something about it. This is essential when it comes to your physical, mental and social health.

We have a range of different options on how you can learn these skills and strengthen your self-care so it feels sturdy and strong.

The relationship you have with yourself is the only relationship that is with you every breath of the way and every hour of your day. Your feelings are like the dashboard in a car letting you know what needs attention.  Knowing how to understand and respond to your feelings is, therefore, integral to being able to care for this most important relationship you have.

Our mission is to improve health and well-being through increased health and emotional literacy. You can learn more about what that means on our mission page.
