The Red Line

What does it take to draw a red line in the sand? How much is too much? Where is your boundary, and when you reach it… what will you do about it? Some of us are very clear about this line. Some of us see the line, recognize it as the last possible place of…

When someone mentions ‘self care’ I think of ‘me time.’ I think of the time one spends (or should spend) doing things that enhance their well-being. Although we should all be taking the time to do the things we love or the things that make us feel good, I also think of self care as…

Love, Jordan

Once upon a time,  the mere mention of ‘self care’ would make me cringe. I’d feel like: “What is this person even talking about… this new-age feel good whatever the hell spiritual/emotional/mental… what does it even mean? Today, I see that the truth was that I didn’t care enough about myself to practice self-care, so…

Love, Angie

My number one source of self care is yoga! Other things that come to mind are a bubble bath with a blunt, quality time with my husband & cat, lunch with a friend, or an amazing hike! But it can also look like treating yourself to coffee or your favorite meal, alone time, getting lost…

LOVE: Words & Weapons

“I’m so fat.” “I’m such a loser.” “My face is so ugly.” “My hair is the worst.” “I can’t do that because…” If I had a dime for every person who said those things and so much worse in my presence… I’ve often pontificated about the danger of weaponizing words, particularly against yourself. That if…

Love, Drew

When I think of self care, so much comes to mind. I initially think of health, because that notion has been ingrained in our psyche since we were kids. Despite that constant reminder that we should eat right and exercise, many of us just don’t. Outside of that, I think of self care in terms…

LOVE: Live Strong & Flourish

I use to cringe anytime I heard the words “self-care.” I thought it was merely an attempt to justify lazy or self-indulgent behavior. Of course, that was when I was much less aware of what my body actually requires to function at its optimum levels. I have since come to understand, through life experience and…

Love, Jade

When I think of self care, I think of responsibility. Nobody is going to take care of you but you. They don’t have to – and even if they did – they are not you and don’t know what you truly need to be fulfilled. It is honestly listening to what your needs are and…

Love, Scott

To me, Self Care means to put self first…but not in a selfish or narcissistic way. A person who practices self care has just prioritized their own physical, mental, and spiritual health. I didn’t realize the importance or even really understand the idea of self care until I hit my late 30’s/early 40’s. I always…

LOVE: A Health Story

The term self-care is very important to me.  The truth is that no one can achieve their highest level of well-being, if they don’t have their sh*t together.  Meaning, you have to take care of YOU first, before you do anything else.  Self-care can be done in a number of different ways.  I think what…
