Self Care Day

Quote by Audre Lorde that reads: "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."

July 24 is International Self Care Day – an opportunity to raise awareness about self-care and the important role it plays in a healthy lifestyle. Taking care of our bodies, minds and spirits are core aspects of health, but perhaps never more so than right now. As we navigate a global health crisis that illuminates and magnifies centuries of racialized and gender-based inequalities, it’s critical to remember the radical roots of self-care.
