Help youth make self-care a habit early in life

In the wake of the pandemic, more people are recognizing the importance of self-care. This can look like spa days, tasty treats, and shopping sprees, but it’s important not to neglect the most basic things like good nutrition, sleep, exercise, and taking time to de-stress.

  3. Learn the power of saying no.
  4. Listen to soothing music.
  5. Practice gratitude.
  6. Use journaling to clear the mind.
