because self care is important

I know that myself and a couple people on this website often struggle with self-care or just simply forget to take care of themselves, so here are a couple reminders:

  • Have you eaten a proper meal today? At least one? If not go make yourself at least a small snack to eat.
  • How much water have you drunk today? If you haven’t had any go pour yourself a glass and try to at least sip on it throughout the day.
  • When was the last time you took a shower? Are you making sure to clean yourself at least every two days? If you have not been making sure that you are at least a little clean go take a shower. Or a bath. Relax and try to enjoy yourself.
  • Is there medication you should be taking right now? Go take it if you haven’t already.
  • Is anything burdening you? Such as a negative thought? Get it out of your system. Write it down, shout at a wall if you have to. Just get it out and don’t let it bring you down.
  • Are you getting enough sleep? At least a couple of hours a night? If not go take a nap if you can. If you can’t take a nap right now make a point to sleep longer tonight.

I just want to make sure all of you are being healthy, goodness knows I forget to do these things sometimes.

Take care of yourselves (✿◡‿◡)

idk man i mean i care for & love a lot of people but sometimes i mean like i gotta put myself first u feel. like i can’t take care of anyone if i don’t take care of myself first so like i’m not meaning to ignore anyone or push anyone away or isolate myself but sometimes i just need time to be around myself by myself and figure shit out, and that doesn’t mean that i love anyone any less, it just means that i love myself a little more than i used to

currently curled up in bed in the dark with three chocolate chip cookies and a cup of chocolate milk watching a colin firth movie because i am lazy as fuck and also because self-care is important

{sweetly broken, wholly surrendered}

Because self care is more important than macroeconomics.

Because I can prioritize the ways that God has given me to rest and restore my soul in Him over the pressures that give me anxiety. The pressures to always think about what I’m eating and studying and wearing. They’re so heavy. They weigh me down and I collapse under them when I try to carry them around all day. They’re the burden of expectations that fill my mind and clog up my heart. But when I sip some tea and slowly write a few words on a page, listening to sweet melodies of praise, I am reminded of how He is in the midst. I am reminded that one man carried the heaviest burden when he carried a cross. So I don’t have to carry anything anymore.
What is Self-Care and Why is it Important?

What is Self-Care and Why is it Important?

Defining self-care is easy because it’s the opposite of self-sabotage or self-control. To successfully achieve self-care, you must have a self-care plan. It’s through that structured plan that you’re going to be able to properly care for your very being.

Self-care isn’t just about brushing your teeth or combing your hair. Self-care is for the needs within you. Self-care is caring for your soul,…

I gotta say

at least for the moment,

I’m really tired of the discussion atmosphere around everything today involving social/political shit.

Imma rant now and I’m pretty salty so be forewarned.
