Everyone is unique in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to what we like to do. One of the most important things we can do as a person is take care of ourselves, however that may be. Some of us pamper ourselves with face masks or long baths, while others take the time to crack open a book they’ve been wanting to read.
It’s not always fun, but, for me self-care centers around building self-confidence by accomplishing tasks or undertaking small health goals. One week, it may be cutting down on my caffeine consumption and trying to drink more water, and another it may be exercising more regularly. The most difficult (but potentially most rewarding) thing I did this year was significantly cutting down on my social media usage. I deleted my Facebook and Instagram entirely, and uninstalled Twitter from my phone. I only check Twitter once or twice daily if I’m on my laptop, and honestly, I don’t miss Facebook at all. While it may not be helpful for everyone, I felt like it freed up a good bit of my time and improved my ability to concentrate.
For Self-Love Saturday, we challenge you to spend a few minutes today to take care of yourself! After you’re done, share your experience with us! What does your self-care regimen look like, and how does it make you feel?
