Hannah Daisy Illustrates #BoringSelfCare on Instagram

There are many ways to practice self-care. Often, when self-care is promoted, the focus is on relaxing tasks like taking a bath, cuddling up on the couch, doing some gentle yoga or meditating. However, not all self-care is enjoyable. Sometimes, the best way to really take care of yourself is to cross off the more boring items on your to-do list.
