Self care is an inherent need, and one we often neglect. It requires that we are attentive to ourselves and open to self-love and nurturing. I don’t know about you, but this is not something that comes easy for me. I am often unaware of my body, convinced by the false promise of perfectionism, and content to settle for less than comfort. This being the case, self care for me (and many others) is a radical act.
