September is a lot of things. It brings the beginning of fall, marks the start of tailgate season, and comes with many seasonal festivities happening throughout the Coastal Empire. You’re probably familiar with all of those things, but what you may not know is that September is also Self-Care Awareness Month. It’s a special opportunity to prioritize your own holistic health. Self-care can take several forms, be it physical, mental, spiritual, social or emotional. Whatever self-care looks like for you, set aside some time this month to look out for number one. At the end of the day, you’re all you’ve got anyways. Making an effort to promote and preserve a healthy self will serve you – and those around you – well. If you need a little direction, here’s a curated list of places where you can indulge in self-care on the island.
