International Self Care Day - 24 July.

Every year on July 24th, International Self Care Day promotes self-care as a vital foundation of health. It’s also a day for people around the world to prioritize self-care and make it a part of their lifestyle.

Staying well includes taking care of your whole self: physically, mentally, and emotionally. For some, self-care also includes taking care of themselves spiritually. So what exactly does self-care look like? It could be as simple as having some quiet time each day. Others might have coffee with a friend at least once a week.

Other examples of self-care include:

  • Having a regular sleep routine
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Keeping a reflective journal
  • Practicing gratitude
  • Getting a massage
  • Listening to relaxing music
  • Reading a good book
  • Learning to say no
  • Asking for help when necessary

There are other areas of self-care that some focus on as well. For example, financial self-care involves paying bills on time and putting money into savings. Monitoring time on social media and decluttering your home are included in environmental self-care.

The International Self-Care Foundation (IFS) established this day in 2011. The IFS is a charity based in the UK with a global focus. They believe that a healthy society starts when each individual first takes care of themselves.
