September is Self Care Awareness Month
If you would have asked me several years ago to define Self-Care, I would have thought back to the last time I had a manicure and pedicure. Don’t Laugh, that was reality! Manicures and pedicures are great, but there is so much more to taking caring of ourselves.
Let’s face it… life is complicated. The stress and energy needed to keep up with and care for family, home, and work can be overwhelming. On top of this, throw in the long term effects and worry of the last two years or the poor choices a loved one continues to make, and the idea of caring for ourselves can easily be shoved quickly to the side.
