Make It a Priority to Indulge in Practices of Self-Care
I want you to close your eyes now and think about your ideal day. Focus on the sensations of this imagined blissful day. What are you doing? Where are you? How are you feeling? Now, open your eyes. How can you recreate that magic today?
Sometimes it can feel like we are sputtering out on fumes, being puppeted by invisible strings, or trudging through the mud of the mundane, so much so that we can start missing ourselves. What do you miss about yourself? Maybe it’s how you used to smile, react with a cool head, or enjoy your own company. We have so many responsibilities and roles to fill during the day, but when is it time to just be ourselves? Gain solace in the midst of chaos by reconnecting with yourself.

In the past few years, there has been an explosion in the self-care movement, but with so much information out there, finding a place to start can be daunting for some. Here’s some good news: you can start right now with this book!
Self-care isn’t a formula, equation, or list, but rather a personal and ever-changing practice.
