Okay, honesty time — there’s a lot going on the world right now. With South Africa on lockdown, we’re all spending a lot more time inside. And while inside you’re probably doing some quarantine baking (and stress eating), online workouts, binge-watching a few series, all while trying to live as ‘normally’ as possible despite the situation being anything but normal. Given these stressful times, now more than ever it’s become important for us to prioritise taking care of yourself. And while self-care comprises of so much more than doing your skincare routine or taking a relaxing bath — it sure doesn’t hurt to do those things.
