Care for yourself well – Practice healthy habits such as exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, focus on the self-care and relaxation that nurtures your body and your soul. See a movie, call a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a while, have a bubble bath, sit on park bench and smell the flowers. Whatever it is, do it for just you.
