Self-care is important so that we can recharge, prevent burnout, and feel healthy. When we look to the medicine wheel, it is the things you do to help yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
We have listed a few common examples below on what might work for you. If you have any suggestions we should add to our list, please let us know.
