January meeting - Self Care

Thanks to all who came out for our January meeting.  We had a last minute change of topic and it was a great meeting!  We brainstormed and shared ideas for ways we can care for ourselves.  
A few ideas from our discussion:
Have a moment?
Take a deep breath
Drink a glass of water

Have five minutes?
Go outside 
Jam to your favorite music

Have an hour?
walk around the block

Have more?
go to the gym
Spa World

Other ideas:
get more sleep!
