We get it, making sure that everyone else is okay is kinda your thing, right? But I’m here to tell you: It. Is. Not. Sustainable.
Tension and stress levels are higher than ever before as the new strain of Coronavirus continues to cause havoc. And as predictable checklists are starting to pile up for 2021, the world is looking for non-medical interventions to feel better.
Self-care is on Instagram feeds, blogs, and in magazines everywhere. Yup, this phrase keeps popping up – accompanied by amazing bubble baths and perfectly made beds. Seriously though, who has time for that?!
Truth is, to millions, self-care involves indulgent bubble baths and turmeric lattes, but in reality, it can be anything to anyone. It can be simply taking a second to make sure you’re taking care of you and it looks different for everybody. In fact, sometimes self-care doesn’t look or feel very much like self-care. Skipping your favorite TV show to wash the dishes so you can wake up to a clean house might not feel like fun, but it could mean the kindest thing the next day.
In essence self-care refers to small daily habits that are carried out with the intention of reducing stress, enhancing energy, restoring health and being inspired as a whole. Exactly what we need right now, don’t you agree?
Now is the perfect time to reframe “me-time” as we sharpen our tools to conquer 2021 with renewed energy.
So, if you’re looking to spice up your self-care repertoire, we have a few quirky ideas you can try:
Are you taking care of yourself? Because when you do, you are building the strongest, healthiest version of yourself. And this version is the one that will help you to face your responsibilities and enable you to take care of the people you love.
