Do you ever talk to yourself? Taking the time to look in a mirror and ask tough questions is actually amazing for your mental and emotional health. You get an opportunity to learn a little about yourself and even face some issues you may have been avoiding. Just don’t do this exercise in public while walking back and forth on a sidewalk. The goal is to self-care it is not to end up in a padded room.
“He who knows others is learned;
he who knows himself is wise.”
– Lao Tzu


Here’s your chance to have a serious moment of introspection.
