Self Care Is Not Selfish

If 2020 has taught me anything, it's that self care is not selfish. It's an absolute necessity and most certainly not a luxury.

So often, we find ourselves burning out from stress in our daily lives, and it’s not until the moment we’ve absolutely had enough that we allow ourselves a break. But what might happen if we all took a “break” before we reached that final breaking point?


1. Emotional Self-Care

Activities that help you connect, process, and reflect on a full range of emotions.

Examples: Seeing a therapist, writing in a journal, creating art, playing music etc.
