Self-care, or karma yoga for self, requires effort, focused attention and perseverance. It means choosing behaviors that balance the effects of emotional and physical stressors. Self-care at home should balance practices of stillness, exercise, love, aesthetic beauty, and healthy food.
Yoga is a self care practice that can be done in the home. It is part of the H or Health to cultivate within.
