Self care can take many forms, shapes, and sizes. To some people it means going on a run. To others, it looks like buying a fancy meal. Whatever the preference, self care is an important aspect of our mental, emotional, and physical health. It is any activity that refuels us, and not drains us; but sadly, self care is an often forgotten aspect. So whether you meditate, do laps at the pool, or put yourself first for a day, it's not selfish. Rather, it's being conscientious that if we don't care for ourselves first, then we won't be able to care for others. One of our employees, who requested that we publish this anonymously, was nice enough to share her own self care ritual in the form of a photo essay below. Feel free to take inspiration from it as you discover your own methods of practicing self care: and always remember that you are 100% worth it!
