Why self-care matters
It can be challenging to pull ourselves out of a funky mood. But for some reason, after we choose to do even the most minor thing, such as caring for our mind, body, or soul, we feel better. So think if we could get some self-care in routinely… we’ll feel more "ready" for Life's unpredicatableness.
I know. You’re busy. And finding time for yourself can be hard. But if you don’t, it won’t be long before you’re exhausted and operating in a mental fog where it’s hard to care about anything or anyone. And then treating the people around you like they're the problem. Been there.
I wanted to share a 30-day self-care challenge you can do at anytime, and really in any order. The point is to do one small thing every day that will keep us feeling connected to ourselves and the world around us.
