The two most important things we need to give ourselves is alone time and emotional release. The extended period of time to ourselves allows us to truly relax and let go. It's hard to enjoy even the smallest moments of freedom when there is a constant thought of one's responsibilities, friends, and work to-do lists. By adding just a few healthy habits into our routine, we can experience relief almost instantly. Creating a simple discipline to nurture our emotional self-care takes a little time and effort.
