What's self care?
Self Care is about making improvements in your life to protect your physical health and mental wellbeing.
Some examples can be to make time for exercise, eating well, reducing or stopping bad habits such as smoking and ensuring you get enough rest and sleep.
During winter, self care can mean getting the free flu jab and COVID-19 booster if you live with a long term condition such as diabetes or COPD or are aged 50 years and older.
If you're concerned about smoking or weight issues, your local community pharmacy may have programmes to help you with this. They can also provide advice on common winter ailments such as coughs, sore throats and colds, which can be treated with over-the counter medicines.
