The Mental Benefits of Self-Care



By Mindy Lawrence


We live in a crazy world that bombards us with negatives and noise. When we get a moment to take care of ourselves, some people think we are either lazy, self-important, or both. Self-care isn’t like that. It’s necessary to pay attention to our own needs to keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy. Self-Care is important. It promotes positive outcomes, something we all want.

There are extra links below on this post because there is so much information to share on this topic. Make sure to set up a personal program of self-care and follow it. You will feel much better.
