Resources to support your best self. Consider all facets of your life when thinking of self-support: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. And whatever you do, don't get caught up in names for things. Take what works for you and leave the rest. Further, the less judgmental, & more open you are, the healthier you can be. Being open will not affect your ability to OBSERVE and register what is happening to respond or plan. Check out the guide to building a daily routine for great ideas.
