Self care is such a trendy topic right now. For every 5 mom posts I see, there is 1 about self care and how important it is to take time for ourselves in order to be better moms. While that’s true, a friend shared another perspective with me recently that changed how I view self care. In a nutshell –
“True self care is not lavender salt baths and gourmet chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.”
How true is that! It makes sense to build a life we love, and not have to “escape” from with “self care”. I will totally still indulge in regular mani pedis, practice yoga (no luxury to do on the beach everyday like I did here, but the beauty of yoga is you can practice wherever!!!), drink my matcha lattes with honey bobas and eat chocolate, not as an escape, but as part of a healthy and balanced life.
