Care for

  • your body with exercise, eating nourishing and healthy meal, a nap and good hydration,
  • your mind through arts and journaling,
  • your spirit through affirmation and gratitude
  • your social connection by writing letters and calling friends

Do more: listen to music, sing, garden, declutter, watch a film, bake a cake, have a cup of tea, play a game, start a project.
