100 Ways to Treat Yourself

Self-Care

It’s hard to make time for, yet super important so you can keep chugging along. It’s kind of a catch-22: You don’t have time for it, but if you don’t make time, you’ll wear yourself out and won’t BE ABLE to do anything else.

It’s kind of a Treat Yo’self thing I think:
