TAMARA: We spend our personal–and often our professional–lives caring for others but when it comes to our own needs, those don’t even make the list! We’re lunch-skippers, lack-of-sleepers, and it seems we’re almost always in need of a little self-care.

SAMANTHA: Taking care of yourself first goes against an extremely powerful cultural impulse, and honestly most of the time it’s just too hard to do that.
