Simple Self-Care for Busy Times

Self-care can be defined by the term itself – caring for yourself. Self-care includes anything you do to keep yourself healthy. Self-care is especially important during busy times, especially if you’re considering longevity. Self-care practices are often the first thing to become neglected when we find ourselves in challenging situations. It is important to keep self-care top of mind and not an after-thought, especially when we find ourselves in challenging times.

Engaging in a self-care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness, improve energy, and more.
