What’s all this talk about self care? Like do I use a face mask and call it a day? No. Allow me to explain. (Self-proclaimed “expert” here…)
Self care is about more than cosmetics and bubble baths. It’s about adding yourself to your priority list, near the top. We so often work and hustle and give that we forget that we need rest and care too.
Self care is about doing something for you. Whether that be working out or shopping or reading a book, it’s something that brings you joy, feeds your soul, and allows you to refresh. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you can’t pour from and empty cup. You can’t give when you have nothing left. You need to refuel, and you need to do so in a way that makes you happy.
Why is this so important? Because we freaking deserve it. Like I said, so many of us work or parent or run a side hustle or care for a loved one or volunteer and that is so important. It’s also important to refuel and remember. Refuel so that you’re able to continue changing the world. And remember that you matter too.
Today was spent as a self care day. For me, that meant taking a nap, watching Friends, showering and moisturizing my whole body. After three weeks of travel, my skin was so thirsty and needing some TLC. And of course I took a hot bath. Because you know how I do. I’m sharing some of my favorite skin care products of the moment below. This is what I used today and my skin feels revived and youthful.
Don’t forget to rest and recharge. God even added a self care day to the week when he created the world. You gonna argue with God?
