2020 has already brought many challenges (#understatementoftheyear), and the holidays usually bring even more stress along with them. In preparation, I'm here my our little organizer soapbox to talk about self-care for a hot minute. Stay with me please.
It's a common belief that self-care is expensive. And sure, a trip to the day spa isn't cheap. But the narrative that self-care costs money is a marketing ploy. And it's only one tiny little facet of what the term is really about.
Self-care isn't about luxury. It's literally what it sounds like: caring for yourself.
Wondering if you get enough self-care time? Ask yourself if you feel constantly stressed, anxious or tired. If so, than you probably don't get enough. Remember, this year has been tough, so many of us need more of that personal attention than in the past to make up for the extra cortisol and stress hormones constantly firing this year.
