Self-Care During Lockdown

To ‘be there’ for others, we need, first of all, to ‘be there’ for ourselves.

The pandemic and the series of lockdowns have challenged us all in a multitude of different ways. At such a stressful time, self-care can be one of the first things to be squeezed out, especially as we tend to the needs of others. Taking time to care for self can seem self-indulgent or be a low priority amongst competing needs. As we meet the needs of colleagues, service users, family and friends, we may find ourselves ‘pouring from an empty cup’.  In order to effectively ‘be there’ for others, we need, first of all, to ‘be there’ for ourselves.
