12 Days of Self-Care and Wellbeing with Quest!

Dec 1, 2020 | Blog Articles

When life gets busy and stressful – as it tends to in the lead up to Christmas – people can think that taking time out for yourself is self-indulgent, and self-care can easily fall off our schedules.

However, looking after yourself and your own wellbeing actually helps you get through this busy period better, with less stress and anxiety. Taking time out for yourself, giving your body and mind time to rest and reset gives you more energy, helps you be more productive and more resilient to stressors.

Knowing how to care for ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually is the only way to weather the unpredictability of life.

WHAT IS SELF-CARE?

Self-care includes the activities and practices we choose to do on a regular basis to maintain and improve our health, wellbeing and resilience.

To help you through this busy time of the year, starting on 6 December Quest is providing 12 days of self-care and wellbeing through our social media channels. We hope you can join us for some or all so that you can put activities and practices in place that nourish and replenish your mind, body and spirit.
