Self-care is deliberately taking care of your physical and mental health. This means doing activities that will advance both your short-term and long term well-being and happiness. Moreover, self-care is not just an activity. It is about focusing the mind towards a self-caring approach to life through self-knowledge, self-regulation and introspection.
Self-care done right – meaning doing self-care activities on a regular basis – can have an enormous impact on our lives. These activities can bring rest and relaxation as well as enhance our self-confidence and support healthy relationships.
To summarise, self-care is self-love.

The idea of ‘Me time’ cards originated from a personal meaning of self-care and a wish to support others on their unique journey. We created this tool for everyone who wants to attend to their needs, reflect and sit with what comes up. What I love about this deck is that you can play it as a card game with friends, yet it can also serve as a powerful therapy aid. In my work as a psychologist, ‘Me time’ cards help me engage clients in a conversation about self-care and foster deeper connections in the group.
