What is self-care?

Self-care includes all the steps an individual takes to manage stressors in their life and take care of their health and well-being.

Why is self-care important?

Research suggests self-care helps manage stress, lowers risk of illness and improves energy levels. It’s also been shown to enhance self-confidence and increase both productivity and happiness.

Examples of ways to foster self-care in the workplace

  • Encourage employees to define and maintain their digital communication boundaries, ie. log-on, log-off times
  • Allow for flexibility around and during the workday
  • Promote stretching, meditation and fresh air breaks
  • Support employees in their mindfulness journeys
  • Introduce wellness “check-ins” and/or surveys
