Today is the first day of Self Care Week 2016, running from 14-20 November, a national awareness week to encourage people to look after their own health and well-being.
As therapists spend much of their time concentrating on the health and well-being of clients, campaigns like Self Care Week serve as a reminder that your own well-being is also important.
Read articles on how to look after your physical and mental well-being in the Reading Room of the FHT website*
For example Brigitte Nath, MFHT, looks at Dorn method self-help exercises for therapists, in a feature published in Issue 102 of International Therapist.
In addition, Sandy Newbigging, FHT accredited course provider and author of Body Calm, talks about meditation and using the mind-body connection to heal and stay healthy, in an article published in Issue 116 of International Therapist.
