What to include in a self-care plan:
-a list of your favourite quotes/ sayings- these should help motivate you, give you hope and lift your mood a bit!
-a list of people you love & their contact numbers- this is really helpful to know that people are there for you. You can also agree it with them in advance so you know it’s ok to contact them if you need.
-photos of happy memories- hopefully these will help you remember that life has good times, even if you don’t feel like it now!
-a list of your hopes and ambitions for the future- as with the photos, hopefully this list will help you feel life is worth living, even if you don’t feel it right now.
-something to do- distractions are always great when you feel bad! This could be anything you love doing or which simply passes the time!
-a list of situations you’ve coped well with in the past- this one may take time to compile but is really helpful in challenging thoughts that you can’t cope.
Hope some of you find this helpful xxx
