MOT Brighton, UK - Self Care when everything's terrible - Gem Hill

Questions from Gem’s Meet up session or discussion points.

Self care can be tough when:

  • your normal routines are unavailable
  • you may not have the time/space/mental energy
  • we’re living in ‘interesting times’

As well as a reminder of what self care is and why it’s important, this talk will also share some tips and reminders on how to fit self care around your life and circumstances.
