Resources for Self-Care During Year Two of COVID-19

Whewww! 


We are officially headed into year two of dealing with a pandemic and what a year it has been. 


In the beginning of the pandemic we created a resource for you with a comprehensive list of self-care activities to help you through this time. We figured it was about time to bring back this resource with some updates and changes!


This resource is organized by category so you can easily find what you need when you're looking for ways to feel good.
