Self-Care - EBR Physio Bentleigh East

Self Care over the Holiday period:

Following on from the previous two years 2022 has left many of us many of us feeling depleted, mentally exhausted and racing to “catch up”. This has made a huge impact in all areas of our lives… work, school and our overall wellbeing

So let’s take time over the holiday period to recharge and develop a ‘self-care plan’ to enhance our health and wellbeing.   Self-care may include exercise, reading, meditation, disconnecting from technology, or talking with family and friends.

Why is exercise so important to our self-care?
We all know that exercise is important for keeping us physically healthy but it can also be very effective in helping us manage our mental health and wellbeing. 

How to get started with exercise?

If you haven’t done much exercise previously it can be overwhelming knowing where to start, what to do, etc.   It is a good idea to start small and gradually increase the time and intensity as you progress.   The Better Health website has some great information on the benefits of exercise and also some useful tips on how to safely incorporate exercise into your daily routine.   Most importantly the movement should be enjoyable!

Our physios can help you with an exercise programme tailored to your needs which can be done in a small group setting at our clinic or in your own time at home.
