Self-care is a path to mental health; 13 Tips for Self-Care Practices


As we close out May, it is important to highlight this typical busy spring month as it is also Mental Health Awareness Month. With over 26 million U.S. adults experiencing mental health related illnesses and conditions, we must stop the stigma and normalize mental health and mental health disorders. 

As health & wellness experts at Brooke Blaze, we want to encourage you to take time to focus on your self-care and make manageable, but proactive steps towards taking care of your mental health. 

Self-care practices are great ways to soothe, rest, recharge, reset, or do absolutely nothing. These little moments and breaks help relieve stress, increase productivity, boost self-esteem, and many other benefits. There isn't one way to define self-care, so make it your own!
