We all know self-care is good for us. A necessity, not a luxury. Especially these days.
But why is practicing self-care so hard?
Audre Lorde wrote in A Burst of Light: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

When I was smiling from the NASDAQ building on September 1, 2009, and worked 15-hour-days, I was "too busy" for self-care. I was in my early 30s. My body forgave me. Until anxiety took over. I developed a chronically inflamed esophagus, grinded my teeth to the point of breaking, made cups of coffee at 4:00 a.m. Now I only see my doctors for annual check-ups.
