Self care for beginners

selfcare2 So many of my clients do a really good job of looking after other people, but they don't use those skills to care for themselves. They have reasons like 'I don't have time or I have too many responsibilities' but taking care of yourself isn't selfish or neglectful of others, it's essential.
