How do you practice self-care?
I like to go walking, or practicing yoga Nidra when I am feeling tired. Also reading a good novel, time alone!! And time spent with Tony my horse is very therapeutic!! I just love animals and get a great sense of joy from birds, and squirrels and all critters!! And cuddling up on the couch with Jack, my husband, watching Netflix or Eastenders or Coronation Street!!
