Share your self-care: Drawing and painting help me stay calm and centred and my mind is more at rest and I feel happier when I've done some drawing. We learned to do Mandalas at a workshop.

Share your self-care: A beautiful gift from One Door. I will use for a face massage. As a carer you need as much care for yourself. Believe in yourself!

Share your self-care: Thank you to One Door for the gift voucher, it made my day! I can use the voucher for a face massage. My table place mats are just a reminder to believe in yourself and dream big, no matter what.

Share your self-care: We live in a rural area so country drives to outlying towns is a great way to de-stress. Put on your favourite music and either have lunch somewhere new or picnic on the side of the road. It's a change of scenery and pace.

Share your self-care: Any kind of water is my favourite way to self-care. In the summer its pool, river, dam or spa and in the winter it's the hydrotherapy pool :)
