Lessons from a Self-Care Strategy

Then, you’ll write an essay on the research and your experiences. Using cited ideas from reliable sources and your own experience, write a thesis-driven essay that responds to both of the following questions: What is one self-care strategy, how can people practice it, and what are the benefits of it? What lessons did you learn from practicing this self-care strategy?  *In the introduction, make sure to describe how you practiced the self-care strategy you chose. You must use cited ideas from 3-6 reliable sources.  At least 1 of your sources must be from one of the library databases. Note that you may use more than one source from the library databases. All of your sources can even be from the library databases if you’d like. You may use reliable sources from Google. As always, you should use cited evidence from source(s) in every body paragraph. You will also need to use personal experience in the lessons paragraphs (though you won’t cite your personal experience, of course).
