You probably read the title of this and thought, “What on earth is self-care?” Chances are, you already do know what it is on some level, and are doing it anyways. In that case, good for you! But if you aren’t, sure take a few minutes to read and see if it applies to you.
Making sure you’re in good physical health is important, but it isn’t the whole picture. It’s just as important that you take care of yourself mentally as well.
