I came across this article on The Mighty, and I thought it was very clever of this girl to put together what some would call an "emergency kit" - except this one is simply for mental health and potential crisis situations. This kit is to be individualized and tailored to YOU.

Most of us don't make self-care a priority and often set it aside for later, which sometimes never happens for some of us. Taking care of ourselves is not at all selfish, but rather an important consideration to others by making it possible for us to show up and be our best each and every day.

Check out this article and think about how taking care of yourself is really beneficial not only for yourself, but also for the people you live and work with.
