Self-Care

Self-care is the constant repetition of habits, which together ward off exhaustion and keep you at your optimum— physically, and mentally.

The best way to do this is to implement tiny self-care habits every day. To regularly include in your life a little bit of love and attention for your own body, mind, and soul.
