Today we are going to focus on the mind. Your mental health is just as important as the food you eat.

If you feel stressed, anxious, overworked or generally unhappy or uninspired then it is even more important to give your mind some extra space and calmness.
Each person has their own version of what self care means. It’s all about the individual. What works for you may not work for the next person. This is the same as your diet and the food you consume.

Though mind and body reactions may vary, these symptoms are often an indication of anxiety.
