Self care is not a trend. It is crucial; an intricate part of mental health, a vessel for emotional unpacking and sanity. Beyond the bath bombs, face masks and Instagram posts is a woman dealing with life. And that obstacle can sometimes be a frightening one.
Self care originated with the intention of not burning out. Giving your body and mind a break as you rejuvenate your spirit. “In philosophy, self-care refers to the care and cultivation of self in a comprehensive sense, focusing in particular on the soul and the knowledge of self.” (Wikipedia)
Sometimes life gets in the way of life. We often get caught up in wanting to appear ‘okay‘ but what we really need is to take a break in order to be genuinely feeling fine.
