How many times have you thought about improving your self-care routine but found yourself unsure of where to start or intimidated by the process altogether? Psychologists define self-care as any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. Although this may seem like a simple concept in theory, it is often overlooked due to increasing demands on our time and energy. Self-care is the key to improving our mood, reducing anxiety and improving our relationships with others and ourselves.
