What's Self Care Got to Do with It?Mar 24, 2021
As I sat down to write this post, for some reason, Tina Turner's song "What's Love Got to Do with It?" popped into my head, so that then led to the question and reflection, "What's self care got to do with it?" You've heard the now cliché but still so true 'Self care is not selfish' or 'Self care is self love' quotes, but do you really believe it?
Are you really taking your 'me' time and focusing on self care, or are you getting caught up in life's many responsibilities, be it motherhood, being a caring partner/spouse, being a kind friend, taking care of fur babies, helping out with aging parents--and juggling that with work, and for many people this past year, supervising remote learning?
I confess, establishing and maintaining boundaries to give myself time for self care has been challenging, especially this past year. If you are need some inspiration, I invite you to check out these articles I wrote for our sister site, All Things Relax.
