Self-Care With Me: Marissa Rei
#Blackout Co-Creator Marissa Rei (@marsincharge) is sharing a glimpse into what she does to engage in self-care!
*voice over* Hey Tumblr! It’s Marissa Rei from #TheBlackout and I’m going to be sharing my self-care with you! Self-care is really important to me as a person that has had a very long and challenging mental health journey. I love to engage in skincare and to keep really well hydrated *laughs*.
It’s also super fun for me to do my makeup, as you’ll see in a second!
My mental health journey includes struggles with anxiety, depression, and with body image so for me to take time to really take care of my body and feel healthy is super important.
I also take time to appreciate the small things such as good music and good tea. I throw myself into hobbies like collecting stuffed animals and photography.
And I’m never afraid to treat myself to my favorite candy.
The take away here is that you should surround yourself with things that make you smile, no matter how silly or small.
