Do you need to make self-care more of a priority? Not sure how to get started—or stay on top of it? In a journal, brainstorm a list of the self-care activities that help you feel energized and restored. These could range from taking a bath to discovering new authors. The activities that are best for you may change depending on what your schedule and budget allow, what your values and goals are, and what external circumstances permit. Creating a new list each month will keep you engaged in your self-care and attentive to your ever-changing needs!
Consider these subtle but effective ways to nourish your body, your mind, and the world.
