What does self-care mean to you? For me, in addition to my daily routine of putting my face on, it’s getting that much needed “me time” and letting my body relax and recover from life. I make a conscious effort to not schedule anything on Sundays. Sundays are my “me day” – I catch up on freelance work, my TV shows, stay in my PJs and end the day with a lush cosmetics bath. It’s my Sunday ritual.
Self-care is such an important act, one that I think we often push to the sidelines for various reasons: we’re too busy caring for others, we don’t have time because of our jobs, school work or adulting, blah blah blah. I won’t lie, I catch myself making excuses too sometimes. When I chose to dedicate one day a week to self-care, the excuses started happening a whole lot less. And honestly, it taught me just how important and valuable the simple act of self-care is.
