Self-care is in your mind

If you can’t physically go where you want to go, go there in your mind. Lie down in a quiet room, close your eyes, and relax every muscle in your body. Picture the view from where you would like to be: the beach, a snow-capped mountain, the view of the lake from your boat, the moss-covered forest. Smell the smells. Immerse yourself in that wonderful feeling. No, it’s not as good as actually being there, but it’s the next best thing. Sometimes self-care is all in your mind.
