OTTAWA, ON, July 24, 2020 /Consumer Health Products Canada/CHP Canada / –
Self-care is all about the important role you play in your own health. Whether exercising, brushing your teeth, eating well, applying sunscreen, quitting smoking, or treating fevers and headaches, self-care is what we all do to stay healthy.
This day has served over the years as a great reminder for each of us to take care of ourselves and for our governments to support us in doing so. Yet, self-care is now more important than ever before.
As Canadians cared for themselves at home, including their efforts to prevent and treat COVID-19, they enabled our health care system to focus on critical cases of COVID-19 and emergencies. Self-care has been a critical part of our collective COVID-19 response. Based on a recently published survey, since the COVID-19 pandemic began, 39% of Canadians have been seeking more information about their health from home, 28% consider that their knowledge about their health has improved, and 58% of those who managed health conditions themselves during the pandemic were satisfied with their efforts.
This year, celebrate Self-Care Day by reflecting on the role self-care has played for each of us individually and all of us collectively during the COVID-19 pandemic, and by planning for our health and well-being in the future. Now more than ever, self-care benefits you and everyone around you.
