At Oxford Healthcare Retreat we encourage all our guests to find both inner and outer balance in all areas of life. While it’s important to engage in activities that bring joy and relaxation, it’s equally crucial to address the tougher areas of life that require discipline and emotional labour. Here are some tips for balancing both:

Schedule Self-care: Make time for self-care activities. For example, you might spend the morning journaling and the afternoon on a fun activity.
Be Mindful: Pay attention to your needs and adjust your self-care routine accordingly. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, a light activity might help. If you’ve been avoiding a tough issue, it might be time to address it.
Seek Support: Don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Therapists, support groups, and trusted friends can provide valuable assistance in navigating difficulty in self-care.

Understanding and incorporating all aspects of self-care can lead to a more balanced, fulfilling, and resilient approach to life.
Relax, recharge and de-stress 🌿
