What is the number one lesson you've learned that you would share with your 12 year old self if you could?

What does wellbeing mean to you personally and how do you practice self-care/self-love?
Wellbeing is complex and hard to describe, though I would say it is a state of acceptance and satisfaction, where all components of yourself are in harmony, both your body and mind. I practice self care by nurturing my growing rainforest in my room! I have many plants, and their 'state' is often a reflection of my own wellbeing. So by tending to my plants, it is as though I am tending to myself as well, so to speak. My downtime is in the evenings where it is quiet and I go through my skin care routine, which is also how I practice self-care.
How do you ensure you prioritise the time to focus on your wellness journey?
