Self-Care Awareness Month

Self-care is often neglected in our daily lives, as we have many things to worry about and our health is often overlooked. We tend to put others needs before our own without focusing on our own physical, emotional, and mental health. Taking care of ourselves is essential, and true self-care measures are not self-centered. This month is a time to remind us to take care of ourselves without guilt. Self-care methods should benefit the mind, body, and/or soul. Practices like meditation, journaling, reading, or taking a bath with essential oils are common. Self-care looks different for each of us, and we should participate without guilt and without apologizing.  Be kind to yourself as you would be to others; you cannot pour from an empty cup.
