When you get on an airplane the first thing they tell you is to put your mask on first, before helping others. Yet why don't we do that in real life?
For the last couple of years the term "self care" has exploded across the internet, on television and even in movies.
But what does it mean?
It's about taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, especially during periods of stress.
So.. wondering where to start?
