Practicing Self-Care NowSelf-care isn’t selfish or an indulgence. It’s a priority. Especially right now, when stress is running high, it’s more essential than ever.

How to practise some self-care when we can’t do the things we normally do to make ourselves feel better? And how to tell when self-care becomes self-indulgence?
