How In The World Does Self Care Heal Your Gut?

I've been seeing, hearing and reading a lot about self care. Self care is about doing something that makes you happy, content or mindful about you or your surroundings. It may be an activity you treat yourself to such as a massage or facial. It could be taking a yoga class or going for a hike in the woods. It could mean you take a bubble bath and spend some time alone. Whatever the activity of self care means to you, is the self care you need to participate in.
