These days, we might tend to think of self-care as an indulgence in some pleasure that takes our minds off the daily grind. Many of our more public forms of relaxation (going out with friends, seeing a movie, going to the salon) have been limited because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. There also might be less money to go toward self-care as unemployment keeps rising and business are still shuttered in some places.
