While my brain fog seems to be clearing enough to actually read full books again, over the summer I took the opportunity to read three very diverse books, primarily to pass the time while commuting to my treatments, but also to get my mind working and as a diversion from pain and the monotony of life with chronic illness. I enjoyed each book immensely in their own way, and savoured the diversity of my choices.
Lately it seems like I read or hear the term "Self-Care" in various other forms of media many times each day. It is not a term that I can remember hearing growing up, but, while currently on-trend, self-care is nothing new and can be so important to your health. Proactively planning for Self-Care time is as important as ever.
