We often lose focus of ourselves in our busy lives, which can negatively impact our mental and physical health. There’s always something that needs to be done for someone else. Well, this year, turn the spotlight back on you.

If you’re still looking for a New Year’s Resolution, start by looking inward. What is it you really need to improve your well-being, which will then translate across all areas of your life as well as your relationships with others? Let’s look at six self-care promises for 2017…
