I learned starting small is best, and then I added other elements to my self-care routine. I started with the basics, such as taking a warm bath, getting enough sleep, and exercising. Then, I added journaling, meditation, and spending quality time with family and friends. Finally, I added activities that bring me joy, like reading a book, listening to music, or working out.
The hardest part of this was embracing the things life has dealt with me and being able to move past them. See, this was more than bubble baths. It was days of healing, forgiveness, crying, and being happy. You are worth this journey, and trust me when I tell you it is worth it.
