At the same time, aliens decide to pay our planet a visit. At arrival, they find the streets strangely quiet, shops, restaurants, cafes, and stores shut down. As they make their way from one house to the next, the aliens discover bodies after bodies. What’s more strange is the piles of items, labeled toilet paper, they discover in every house.

As we all know, it can be challenging to practice self-care in the midst of everything that grabs at our attention on any given day.

Whether you’re juggling a career and a social life, or school and hobbies, or just trying to make it to bed at a decent hour, the busyness of life is often not conducive to the development of a self-care routine.
