Self-Care

Self-care means different things for different people. But basically, self-care is any (intentional) action you take to care for your mental, emotional, and physical health and well-being.

Activism is hard. Being at Middlebury is hard. It is easy to stretch yourself out too thing because you feel like you are not doing enough. You ARE enough.

Special shoutout to Tumblr in general for giving me such knowledge and passion for social justice and the world around me, especially to http://fuckyeahmixedbeauty.tumblr.com/ for the amazing self-care resources!
