Life is a journey, but work and screens can take over. Simple daily habits can offer a buffer. A few small routines help to create quality time and moments of contentment that make a big difference in how you feel.
Summer is a busy time, and it’s easy to end up over committed. You feel happy and more calm when you make time for self-care.
