To look after whānau well, you need to look after yourself too. Eating well, getting enough sleep, being active and asking for help are all things you can do to look after yourself.
Supporting whānau is rewarding mahi, but in order to sustain this and be at your best, you need to look after yourself too. Sometimes it’s only when things feel really stressful that we look to our own oranga, hauora and wellbeing. The good news is that looking after our wellbeing can be simple – it’s the enjoyable everyday things that do this for us.
