Self-Care for Your Mind and Body

Today is our last day in the office seeing patients before we take off on our annual family vacation! *We will be out of the office Friday, August 9th through Thursday, August 15th, and return to the office on Friday, August 16th.* 

Over the years, as life has gotten busier and various responsibilities have piled on, I have recognized the need for self-care. When my batteries start to become depleted, I simply don't function as well, don't do my best work in the office, and can become unhappy. This is one reason why I have made getaways and this annual family trip a priority.

I love the infographic I found below on rest. It can come in many forms, and doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money or take vacations all of the time. Rest and rejuvenation can include: taking a walk outside, taking a bath, shutting off your phone for an hour, catching up on sleep, laying on the grass watching the sky, heading to the beach, or getting your chiropractic treatment, and more! 

What does self-care look like to you? Are you taking the time to nourish your body and mind so that you can be at your best for yourself and others every day?
