November is a time to “give thanks” for all of the wonderful blessings that we might take for granted when we are busy “adulting” in our daily lives. One thing that we often do not recognize is how that lack of appreciation also pertains to ourselves! It is important to stop & honor our own minds & bodies to help sustain the drive & motivation it takes to just get us through the week. This week’s blog is dedicated to HEALTH, WELLNESS, & taking care of ourselves. Here we are highlighting all the best in the district on how to honor ourselves to stay sane throughout the fun, yet demanding holiday season.
