Things to Get Involved In


Self-care is all about what you can do to help yourself feel better or to keep yourself feeling good. It’s a way that we can look after our own mental health and wellbeing. Everyone’s approach to self-care will look different. What works for you might not work for others. There are lots of different self-care strategies so you can try out different ones until you find something that works for you. The main thing is to find things you enjoy. Whatever works for you.

Tasting Exercise

Taste something with a strong flavour, like coffee or a tangerine, and pay close attention to what happens in your mouth, then what feeling these tastes evoke. Really try and appreciate how the object tastes and how the object makes you feel. Breathe it in deep without thinking of anything other than that object and how it makes you feel. Try this a couple of times until you have fully understood and appreciated every aspect and emotion of the taste.
