My Favorite Daily, Weekly, & Monthly Self-Care Rituals


By now, we all know that self care is of paramount importance. It’s been a mainstay on this very blog since I started writing. A lot of stories that center on self care, though, seem to focus on great big things people can do to care for themselves–things that can take up a lot of time, energy, and/or money.

Here’s your roadmap for kicking off a healthy life. (more…)
