Summertime Self-Care

You’ve probably uttered the words, “I really should” before rattling off a long to-do list. While it feels good to check off chores, that list can become never-ending. Whether it’s dishes, laundry, errands or other tasks, inevitably these chores come back around again, and after a few cycles, you can start to feel stressed out and burnt out. This summer is a great time to take a step back and learn to prioritize self-care.

Getting the most out of summer

Summertime is a period of rejuvenation. Since childhood, summer has represented a break from the usual routine and held a promise of rest and relaxation. That’s why it’s still wise to tap into your inner child and remind yourself that times of rest allow you to function in the healthiest possible way because you need time for self-care. Think of it as an oil change for your mind—improving your psyche so you can enjoy life more.
