The opportunities for self-care

By Kel Fox Sarah’s offline this week, taking some time off teaching and writing to look after herself during a bout of illness. Since that in itself is an act of self-care, it seems like a good time to revisit last year’s theme, and perhaps see if there is a link to this year’s theme of ‘connection’. What is self-care?
