Your Wellbeing

Practice self-care


It is really important to practice self-care to look after your physical and emotional well-being when you are grieving. Taking care of your wellbeing can help you to tackle anxiety and stress and it can also help you be more resilient when things feel overwhelming or tough to cope with. It is particularly important when you are having a bad day. All the ideas work well for both adults and children.
