30moments of self-care

Psychologist Suzy Reading shares her sure-fire way to revolutionary acts of self-kindness and wellbeing –and it’s a baby-steps philosophy

Nurturing other people has always been my passion, whether that was working in my capacity as a psychologist, yoga teacher or personal trainer. It wasn’t until motherhood collided with the terminal illness of my father that I truly realised how vital it is to nourish myself, too. I learned what happens when we discard self-care and that experience of energetic bankruptcy showed me that there’s nothing selfish or luxurious about it. I had to step up and care for myself, so that I could best care for my daughter. Running myself ragged served no one.

In clawing my way back to health and wholeness, I developed a framework of self-care called the Vitality Wheel, to help connect me with a mood-boosting, stress-busting or coping tool when I needed it the most. When we’re feeling overwhelmed, we are at our least creative and resourceful, so the Vitality Wheel is designed to cut through the emotional flap, and get us back on track. Now, in addition to my abiding calling to help people heal from stress, loss and change, my mission is to empower them with the skills to nurture themselves, too. Self-care is more than just a fluffy concept – it is the future of preventative medicine, building our resilience to help us manage, and bounce back from the inevitable curveballs of life.
