Business Event Wellness Podcast Series: The Mental Benefits of Self-Care Regime

Release Date: 22 October 2021 Welcome back to the Business Events Wellness podcast, our nation’s first mental health podcast for the business events industry. This podcast is brought to you by Business Events Sarawak in conjunction with World Mental Health Awareness Month. My name is Kimberley Tan and I will be your podcast host for this series.  Thank you for tuning into this episode today titled “The Mental Benefits of Self-Care Regime” and we hope this podcast will bring some light to our fellow industry players.  Synopsis: Self-care is a term that is used often and by a lot of people. Depending on who you ask, it’s anything from five minutes of uninterrupted reading time to a full weekend at a spa. While it is a hot buzzword, self-care for your mental health isn’t just trendy—it’s transformative. Having a good self-care regimen can lead to a better-balanced life, improved mental health, and emotional regulation. But with all the information out there, how do we know what we should be adding to our daily routines? What is helpful—and what’s hype?
