The FIRST Thing to Go is…

When summer comes to a close and the fun ends, the schedules get packed with activities, work assignments gear up and deadlines become more of a reality than packing your beach bag for a relaxing day in the sand.And unfortunately the first thing to go during this busy time of year is…SELF CARE.
