Self-care is “The practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress”. What does self-care mean to you? Do you even practice self-care? It doesn’t have to mean bubble baths, massages, facials etc. You don’t have to spend lots of money either. Only Pampering for self-care is a misconception, in fact I really don’t enjoy going to the nail shop getting my nails done, getting pedicures and eyebrow wax. It actually feels more like an obligation to me. I absolutely love getting facials though as it is so relaxing and refreshing. Think outside the box..... what are you doing when you’re most happy, relaxed and free? I personally feel such enjoyment when I’m working out. It’s a great stress reliever. Since endorphins act on the opiate receptors in our brains, they reduce pain and boost pleasure, resulting in a feeling of well-being. Endorphins are released in response to pain or stress, but they're also released during other activities, like eating, exercise, or sex. Whatever you need to do to take care of you and put you first..... JUST DO IT!
