Welcome to Self Care Stories, a blog series showcasing how different people take care of themselves around the world. In our lives, we often forget to prioritize our own well-being. We hope that by reading these stories, you feel inspired to build your own self-care routines because your own care is important.
What's your background?
I am a 23-year-old student from Macau and currently live in Toronto, Canada. My hobbies also include playing sports.
What's your definition of self-care or what does self-care mean to you?
Self-care means taking care of yourself for everything.
Tell me your story. How do you practice self-care in your life?
When I was young, my parents have to work shift, so I had to take care of my sister and myself all the time. Some ways I took care of ourselves was through cooking food and doing the laundry.
What makes taking care of yourself so important to you?
Since I live by myself, I have no one to take care of me so I have to take care of myself.
If you had advice to give someone else on practicing self-care, what would it be?
If you can find someone to help you, that’d be great because you can't do everything by yourself.
This series was created in collaboration with Self Caid. To find out more information on how to build a self-care routine, check out them out here.
