Let’s Talk: What Self-Care Really Is

Self-care has become a thing. I’ve even talked about it before. Self-care has become a buzzword we throw around when we want to focus on our lifestyle. Let’s talk about what self-care really is. I feel like self-care is a good thing but a lot of people have started to miss the context of what it’s supposed to be. So now more people are brushing it off as a trend thing. But it’s so much more than putting on a face mask and calling it a day.

It’s More than Bath Bombs

Self-care is regularly seen as taking a bath and having candles all around and simply relaxing. And yes, self-care can have those things. But the overall main idea of self-care is to do things that will genuinely make you happy or gives you peace. It’s not meant to just focus at the external but it’s suppose to take care of you from the inside.

Take Care of Yourself

Still have your bath bombs and face masks but also take care of yourself in the inside. This can mean cutting people out of your life that are toxic. It can mean changing jobs or a situation you’re in. It can also be eating healthier or starting a new hobby. Self-care can be anything as long as you are taking care of yourself in the best way. You need to have peace in your life and sometimes things don’t have a temporary solution. As long as you do something that gives you genuine joy, that is truly what self-care is.
