50+ Self Care Activities

Taking care of your self is one of the most important parts of life and your health.  It is often the one thing we forget about too.  The truth is if you don’t take care of yourself you really can’t take care of anyone else.  So before you give all your time to everyone and everything create some time for self-care.  It can be quick, it can be long whatever fits you best…just do it!  Check out my Self Care List below and bring one or two or more into your life…
