You know when you’ve had a long of day of work (me today) and you feel like you want to retreat forever. Or when it’s just been a crappy day and things have seemingly not gone right for you. Those days when you’d rather be a b**** and simply tell everyone to f*** off. Those are the days that you should love yourself the most. Those are the days when you should intentionally treat yourself and let your body know that although these things are happening or have happened they by no means define the way the rest of your day or life for that matter is going.
Some ways you can self-care:
1. Take a bath.
Lights down low. Bubbles everywhere. Music playing in the background. Unwind.
2. Read a book.
I’m currently reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and its so freaking good. Stay woke. I try to squeeze in as much time to read it as possible.
3. Do your hair.
For all you naturalistas out there. You know what I’m talking about. It feels great after you detangle your hair, put seem deep conditioner on it and watch it come magically back to life.
4. Connect with good friends.
Friends that don’t judge you. The ones who will go watch Blank Panther with you for the 5th time, stay up late talking about those akward fangirl days (Beliebers out there you know what I mean..), and the ones who will pray with you no matter what situation y’all are both in spiritually. Those friends.
How important is self-care to you? What are some of your self-care practices?
