The Worst Selfcare Practice That Changed Everything
the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health.
the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress. "expressing oneself is an essential form of self-care"
When you are stressed out, your (mental) health, sleep, and self-care are the first to go.
10 years ago I had no idea what selfcare was. I was sofa king tired all the time. I was stretched so thin- I was overwhelmed and I was cranky. ALL.the.time. I was 30 years old.
A tired new mom, barely married and I was overwhelmed with my new 'responsibilities'. I felt like I had gone to another country and I was in culture shock. I mean, I was barely an adult myself and I was miserable.... can you relate?
Rock bottom was during my second round of postpartum depression with my second son. I still had zero selfcare game and I was desperate to figure out how to make me feel happy & whole again. This couldn't be how adulting was supposed to be right?!
I couldn't find what I was looking for on the google. I wanted a tangible checklist that I could gather inspiration from but also check off tasks as I had completed a selfcare thing so that I could see and feel that I was building healthier habits. I wanted to be able to add my own ideas & inspirations and that is why I created the Selfcare Checklist.
As I started to slowly climb out of the fog, I realized that while I was on auto pilot I was pumping my tires on empowering other women just like me with their own selfcare. That time of my life was all a blur- like how did I instinctively share how much I benefited from creating daily selfcare habits for myself with others?! I still have no idea and well, then I found essential oils and then that completely blew my selfcare game to the next level. More on that soon.
