Meredith, what does self-care mean and look to you?
For me self-care is a moment when I’m not actively caring for others. I relish an opportunity to be by myself. This can look like driving alone while listening to music. Shovelling the driveway. Having a shower without interruption. Swimming. Turning my phone off. Going grocery shopping alone, then sitting in the car for an extra 5 minutes before coming inside the house. Reading a book purely for pleasure.
