Creating A self-care Routine: 7 Areas to focus on

We all need and usually don't get enough self-care. By the time we are able to sit down and actually take some time for ourselves, we have usually decided on watching TV, to just numb the stress of our day. Though this may seem like a hiatus from the day, it doesn't do much for us. When you get up, you usually don't feel a change in your stress levels. 

So, how can we make sure we are able to get in self-care? With self-care rituals. Now, don't think of self-care rituals as your morning routine, or nightly routine that may be an hour and half long. Self-care rituals can be as long or as short as you need them to be. They are there to be turned into routines or when you know you are in need.

We all know that self-care is important. But, sometimes, it can feel like a challenge just getting it into our days. There are times when stress strikes you in the line at the grocery store, or at lunch while at work. It immediately makes your body tense up and your emotions go out of control.
