Self-care doesn’t have to cost you a dang thing

Find your direction with this insightful self-care article from Popular Science on self-care. "Self-care is “what people do for themselves to establish and maintain health [and] prevent and deal with illness,” according to a report from the World Health Organization."

Looking for a change to better living should start with exploring something new through UNMCE. We have a new Crossfit and The Runner's Mind series. Stretch you body and mind with yoga or a strength-cardio class. Take it outside with golf or a hike. CE makes it easy to get into the game. The concept of “self-care” is inescapable, between the social media posts about rejuvenating mani-pedis and TED talks about the restorative properties of journaling. But how do you really practice it? 09/01/2018
