Best of Our Blogs: December 12, 2017

I recently read this post by a singer with bipolar disorder. It opened my eyes to what self-care actually looks like when you’re suffering from a mental illness.

Instead of spa days, and yoga, she says for her it looks like slowing down, finding your own way and spending time with friends.

This holiday season as you get lost in other people’s expectations, why not create your own list? Not a self-care list that looks good, but one that feels good to you.
