Spring is a time of rebirth, renewal and change, as we embrace the light of fresh bright mornings and open the doors wide to take in the fresh air. The arrival of Spring is an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves and our surroundings - take long beach walks or just spend time outside. It's also a time to rejuvenate and to re-evaluate our daily self care rituals and seek more sustainable routines. The environment should be important to us all and we can all make a small difference every day. By changing our self care daily rituals to a more sustainable one - our small steps can help the planet. In this journal article we want to share our inspiration for making sustainable choices for self care.
