Practice Self-Care at These Local Businesses During Wellness Month

As we continue to face unprecedented challenges and change, it is only natural to feel stressed and anxious. That is why it is more important than ever to practice self-care. August is Wellness Month, a nationally recognized month dedicated to self-care, creating healthy routines, and managing stress. Research has shown self-care helps manage stress and promotes happiness. Portland has a myriad of Health and Wellness businesses to help you #choosewellness this August. Here are a few:
