Taking good care of yourself entails looking out for yourself by engaging in activities and practices that boost your wellbeing, it’s about being good to yourself in all the ways that you generally would be towards others. Self-awareness is an important component of a good self-care practice as it helps you gauge which areas of your life need more attention and how to better care for yourself.

WORLD OF WELLNESS: What the health?

The World Health Organisation defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. That means that our health is determined by our wellbeing that encompasses our physical health, which involves the state of our bodies (how fit we are, how well our organs function etc.), our mental health (how intact our mental processes are, how well we function emotionally etc.) and our social health (how well we interact with others as well as the state of our interpersonal relationships for example).
