Life is busy and it's easy to overlook the importance of taking care of ourselves. However, self-care is fundamental to well-being and resilience.

Whether it's carving out time for relaxation, nourishing our bodies with healthy food, getting enough sleep, or engaging in activities that bring us joy, self-care looks different for everyone. It's about prioritizing mental, emotional, and physical health so that we can show up as our best selves for others and for the causes we're passionate about.
