Self-Care for Survival

I think many of us are simply dumbstruck by all that is happening in the political and world news today. I know I am.   I came across this post (link below at bottom) that includes some brilliant self-preservation tips to maintain a positive perspective, while standing strong in your political views AND staying well, mentally and physically.

Ever wonder “How did I get here?” Here’s my story…

I’ve been doing a lot of work on my “self” lately… Well… it’s actually been a life long thing but over the last 3 years I’ve really experienced a lot of positive and negative change.
