My Tips on Self-Care:

Self-care can seem luxurious or even frivolous but here is why it is important for your physical and mental health: we are less able to handle stressful situations when we are physically and emotionally exhausted. Implementing a daily self care routine can help alleviate the toll chronic stress can have on the body. Self care involves self compassion.
