I wanted to provide you with 6 self-care ideas amidst stressful times. You may be feeling many emotions right now in response to the overturn of Roe v. Wade and other recent events, such as the mass shooting in Uvalde, TX. It is normal to feel shocked, angry, powerless, unsafe, or all the above. You may have also wondered “What’s going to happen next?”, or “Am I safe here?” Whatever your experience is, it is valid, and you are not alone.
Take a moment to pause and reflect on what is within your control. Also, think about the ways in which you can care for your mind and body during this challenging time. The purpose of practicing self-care is to maintain your balance, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
