One thing I do for myself on a regular basis, is to get my nails done at my local nail salon.  My nails never were in the best of shape, so I get acrylic overlays to protect them and to keep them looking good.  On occasion I will get a pedicure as well.  It’s a self-care practice that I have done for many years.

One thing that all my older clients have in common, is that they use a wall calendar as their schedule.  The kind that have big squares for each date so they have room to jot down multiple appointments.  The kind they can get at the dollar store, or that so many charities send to them when they make a donation. Nothing wrong with that, I use one myself. It’s old school but efficient.
