Self care is any action we engage with to take care of our emotional or mental health. And self care online is just specific to how we can do so when interacting in an online environment. It includes the ways in which we can take care of ourselves while, for example, speaking to people on social media, or reading book reviews published online. This might be how we protect our privacy or whether we respond to negative reviews or comments. It might include managing our anxiety or being wary of our emotions in an online arena. It might include the ways we consciously remove ourselves from a disagreement or a precarious conversation. Above all, self care is about being attuned to our own needs and the good things we can do to look after ourselves.
