30-Day Self-Care Challenge + Free Printables

It’s no secret that the current world situation has turned many of our lives upside down. You may have experienced bouts of stress and anxiety, or lacked motivation over the last few months. If this is true, you’re not alone. Closures and limited store hours of your go-to places like salons, spas, and fitness centers may have put a kink in your self-care routine or made it extra difficult to manage stress during this time. However maintaining your wellness and practicing self-care is more important than ever.
