Want to take better care of your mental and physical well-being? Consider taking some self-care workshops. These can include yoga classes, stress management workshops, and meditation sessions.

What are the forms of self-care?

 

Did you know that there are various forms of self-care? There's physical self-care, which involves taking care of your body through exercise, enough sleep, and a balanced diet. There's also mental self-care, which is more commonly associated with therapy and its various forms as well as activities like journalling. Emotional self-care helps you be in tune with your emotions and how to manage them, especially in stressful situations. There's social self-care that focuses on our personal relationships and spiritual self-care, which is practised through prayer, religion, and meditation.

Now that you know which forms of self-care these workshops can tap into, discover the options you have in Singapore.
