Hey I’m Laurel. I’m a licensed therapist and I wanted to do a quick post about self-care. Self-care is one of the those words we hear a lot about. It probably, as I say self-care, conjures up some images for you. It might be the image of a bubble bath, or a spa treatment, massage, glass of wine, or taking a night for yourself. Those things are great; there’s nothing wrong with those, but that’s a very narrow definition of self-care. I want to expand a little bit and throw out some ideas about what self-care might look like that doesn’t involve spa treatments and large chunks of time and money.
