What is Self-care?


Self-care is taking the time out of each hand every day to take care of yourself by finding your zen. Self-care is not the same for everyone, hence it is a must to find things that calm and relax you to rejuvenate and revive you so you are better able to handle everyday stressors and the mountains one must climb on a daily basis.
