3. Exercise daily as part of your self-care routine to boost your mood and reduce stress.

4. Eat well for self-care to fuel your mind and body. 

5. Say no to others, and say yes to your self-care. 

6. Take a self-care trip. 

7. Take a self-care break by getting outside. 

8. Take care of yourself by getting organized.
