While the holiday season can be a time of joy, it may bring added stress, anxiety, and depression for some people. Many things contribute to the “holiday blues”: fatigue, money problems, over-commitment, and missing family or friends. That’s why, during the holiday season, it’s important to practice self-care.
Self-care is any activity done deliberately to take care of one’s mental, emotional, or physical health. It can help people adapt to changes, build strong relationships, and recover from setbacks. From a physical health perspective, self-care also reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Here are some ways you can support your groups:
- Promote the importance of self-care and share the flyers at the button below
- Ensure groups are aware of the mental health resources available to them
- Review the Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace Guide with your Wellbeing Engagement Consultant
