An annual opportunity to put a spotlight on the benefits of self-care.

Make your #SelfCarePromise today!

We encourage you to make a commitment to engage in a positive self-care action. This will bring us one step closer to establishing self-care as a vital foundation of health and lead to better health outcomes for all.

The Global Self-Care Federation (GSCF) needs everyone onboard to ensure the well-being of individuals and communities around the world. By committing to embrace a specific self-care action, you will join a community of like-minded individuals who not only wish to improve their lives, but also the lives of others.
