Why Self Care Is Non Negotiable For Me

Why Self Care is Non-Negotiable

Recently my friend Ariel from SlayCulture asked me to be part of her #selfcareaday instagram campaign. The aim of the campaign was to highlight the importance of self care by featuring one person’s self care story each day. In my feature, I shared why self care is a non-negotiable for me.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have been doing #SelfCareSunday posts. Every week I make sure I take the time to take care of me, no exceptions. If I’m not careful, I will find myself in front of the computer, sometimes up to 12 hours a day with little breaks.

Almost everywhere I turn I see people who are #TeamNoSleep, #TeamNoDaysOff, #TeamAlwaysGrinding. Don’t get me wrong, I have pulled (and sometimes still do) my share of all nighters, when necessary, but there must be balance. I know myself, and I’m no good to anyone if I don’t take care of myself. So for me, self care is NON-NEGOTIABLE.  I’m also much more productive and focused when I take care of myself.

As you can see, self care doesn’t always mean going off to the spa for a weekend.
For me, small things like taking time away from social media or reading while pampering my face, are acts of self care.
