Now that the holiday season is behind us, let’s face it, we’re often left feeling drained and in need of a reboot. The countless parties, gifting and comfort food makes that time of year really hard to come out of feeling like you’re on top of the world. Taking a moment to practice a little self-care and self-love is what we need to recharge our batteries and face the new year with a sense of gratitude and wellness.
