Self Care Week, 13-19 November

Story added 13th Nov 2017


Self Care Week is an annual national awareness week that focuses on embedding support for self care across communities, families and generations.

This year’s theme is engaging and empowering people and the strapline is ‘Embracing Self Care for Life’.

‘Embracing Self Care for Life’ is about living well and being healthy.  Being active, eating healthily and learning when to self-treat common ailments are all ways to embrace self care.

Many long term conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) are avoidable. However, numbers are still increasing. That’s why this year’s campaign is calling on everyone to embrace self care, making healthy life choices now in order to look after ourselves in the future. Visit the Self Care Week website for full details.   

At City Lit, we believe that everybody should take the time to better look after their physical and mental wellbeing. Here are just of some of our wellbeing courses that can help you incorporate self care into your weekly routine.
