Self-care is not ‘salt baths and chocolate cake’
The topic of self-care is everywhere: trending on Instagram when people post their coffee mugs as they overlook a beautiful lake with the caption, “away for my self-care weekend.” It’s on Facebook when I see the perfectly edited photo of a friends’ legs, crossed at the ankles, heels in the sand. It’s even on blogs when we read about the ways to pamper oneself.
Self-Care can be all of those… or none at all. For me, it’s just the opposite.
It can be as simple as waking up early to make a delicious Saturday-morning breakfast for my family. Or it can be taking a day – or even a morning – to myself to plan out a week’s worth of meals and taking my time grocery shopping and getting everything we need at home.
You get the idea: for me, it’s not glamorous, but it’s doing little things that create moments of joy and satisfaction.
No matter what it is… it is up to you to decide.
Self-care is so different for each person. Check out what Self-Care looks like to me on Healthy Essentials.com
