Self care – putting the oxygen mask on first
Do you even self-care?
It’s a pretty hot topic these days, but what does it mean to be actively “self-caring”? The answer is that it means something different for every one of us – and it’s different for us day by day and moment by moment, depending on how chaotic (or chilled) our day might be.
Sure, self-care could be a luxurious day at the spa or a vacation at a 5- star hotel in the Caribbean (yes please, sign us up!) but more often it’s going to manifest as little ways throughout the day that we can check in with ourselves and make sure we’re quite literally “taking care.”
Self – care could be remembering to take a deep breath when we realize that (oops) we haven’t done that in a while. It could be getting off the train a stop early to walk a bit more and get some fresh air. Or allocating 10 minutes in your busy day for a mini meditation sesh. It could be setting a routine to get our skin, body or mind ready for the day ahead. It could be letting something go.
Whatever it is for you – for this moment – it’s hella important. The way we see it, if you don’t care for yourself, it’s going to be crazy hard to care for other people in your life. It’s that old airplane safety demonstration at play IRL: if you don’t put your oxygen mask on first, you’re not going to be able to help the person sitting next to you, right?
