I am sharing a few of my holistic self care practices with you. I didn't wake up one day and add all these at once to my daily routine. I slowly added what I needed into my day to day. Each presenting itself when my body was asking. Taking care of my skin, teeth, gums, and overall health, both mental and physical. Not only do these practices help me stay fresh physically but they help PREVENT illness. These practices have also helped strengthen my confidence. How does cleansing my body and applying self care practices help me gain confidence? When you start to take care of yourself in a more nurturing way you are proclaiming that you love yourself enough to take care of yourself. Acts of service is a love language for your body. I hope you enjoy this blog series- Easy Self Care Practices.
