Do you ever just have really awful days and you don’t know how to turn them around? On days like those, I force myself to practice some form of self-care. I say force, because alot of the time I don’t really feel like doing it. Doing these practices might not get rid of my problem, but it sure does make me feel better for it. Self-care is so important for maintaining good mental and physical health. We often forget how important self-care is for our overall wellbeing.
