How to do self-care
Self-Care is what people do for themselves to maintain health and to prevent illness. It includes taking care of your body, working through emotions, developing healthy boundaries, and taking time to rest and heal.

That’s because Self-Care is about creating habits that lead to a sustainable life. In this section, you’ll learn how to take care of your body and mind in a way that renews your energy, resolves emotions, helps you make progress, find joy and have better relationships with others.
