If you haven’t already hopped on the self-care train, the time is now. Being cooped up at home for over ten months does things to us— and not just through producing three to four times the average of wine bottle vases. Hey, we’re all just trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy even if it’s only in our slightly buzzed minds. Nevertheless, we hold self-care to a high standard. It’s important that any steps to wellness be celebrated. Just be sure to remember you are allowed to unplug and enjoy, at least for a little while.
