If you're anything like me, you're in constant pursuit for new, inventive ways to find a sense of balance through self-care. As a therapist, I oftentimes preach the importance of how to incorporate self-care into the lives of my clients. Sadly, many people look to the use of self-care as a last resort. We take up so much of our daily lives living them for other people and our careers, that we forget how taking care of ourselves can play a role in our overall mental health and functioning.
