International Self Care Day is celebrated annually on July 24th.  We wanted to give everyone a head start and make you aware of how important it is to practice “self-care.” When life gets busy, it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves. Although you should never feel guilty about taking time for yourself; It is not selfish to prioritize your health. Why is it important? Self-care encourages you to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself so that you can transmit the good feeling to others.

Research has shown that practicing self-care can reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, improve concentration, reduce anger, improve energy, and increase happiness. Even a tiny change impact your health in positive ways.
