It seems like self-care is the new buzzword these days and every time you turn around someone is talking about the importance of it. However, it also seems that the core issue gets lost in talks of weekend getaways and spa services.

While those things are nice, if the only things you do to care for yourself are these random activities, you may not experience lasting benefits. This is especially true if you are only able to do these things occasionally. If financial limitations keep you from enjoying these types of outings altogether, you may experience even more stress and risk of burnout.
