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.

Then I will discuss some areas you may want to think of, when putting together daily, weekly, and monthly rituals.Read More
