When you are born small and cute, not to mention delicious and (handily) appetizer-sized, you never view self-care as optional.
You need to be in tip-top fighting form at all times.
Getting enough beauty rest, scheduling fitness-building chewing and remodeling activities, making time each day to preen your aerodynamic feathers, eating the most nourishing snacks – this is the best way to tell all parts of yourself “I love you and I want you to stick around.”
As a side perk, if one day you are peaceably eating your (tasty, flingable) rice noodles dinner and a gang of microscopic infectious particles tries to sneak up on you, you will already be ready to “use your noodle” so to speak to send the invaders packing.
