Why Self-care is Important to Me...

Why is self-care so important to me? In all honesty, itโ€™s important to me because I know the benefits of it. Letโ€™s first start with the definition of self-care that I often refer to: โ€œ๐’๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ-๐œ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐๐ฌ๐ž๐ญ, ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ญ๐ข๐ž๐ฌ, ๐ฉ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ž๐ฌย ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ก๐š๐›๐ข๐ญ๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ž ๐›๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ญ๐จ ๐›๐ž๐š๐ซ ๐š๐ ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐ฎ๐ง๐ก๐š๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐๐ž๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฆ๐š๐ง๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ž ๐ง๐ž๐ ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž emotions...โ€โฃ September 2019 is when it all began (at least thatโ€™s what I recall).

I Made My Own Turmeric Tea

Okay, so Iโ€™ve been really into natural products lately, whether itโ€™s bath & body products, natural remedies instead of medication and even the things that I am putting into my body. Lately, iโ€™ve had a sore throat and have been reseraching natural anti-inflammatory products to help with this. Of course in my search, I came across turmeric and it's benefits. Turmeric, alsoย ย known as the โ€œGolden Spiceโ€ has many benefits.ย Aย blog byย Meghan Telpner listsย the following benefits such as: โ€œAntioxidant: Curcumin has the ability to quench free radicalsย that can cause mutation in our DNA. Cancer Preventative: The cancer-causing effects of cigarette smoke, barbequing,...

Operation Wellness

Recently, I've dealt with some extremely stressful situations that caused tension and anxiety. I was faced with deciding how to navigate this thing called stress and still live my best life. For me, I decided to really focus on me. I ditched social media for a few weeks and was "selfish" to my own needs. I decided to implement some new Self-Care Practices. I'm no expert in either, but both have been extremely helpful in my journey to a less stressful life (aka Operation Wellness). The first self-care practice that I implemented was Yoga. WHOOO-hoooo I'm a Yogi! Okay, maybe...


Do you support mental health days?

Do you support mental health days?

Employers, Managers, Supervisors, Administrators, Employees and ALL others, do you support mental health days? Employers, if your employees come to you requesting to take a mental health day, how do you react? Employees, when you have requested mental health days, how did your employer act? Do people request mental health days or are they afraid to do so? Talk to me.โ€ฉ In my opinion, mental health days are REAL and should not be viewed as โ€œan excuseโ€ or a โ€œcop outโ€ for lack of better words. Sometimes, we need to get away from it all and RECHARGE! It is so...


Self-care does NOT have to be expensive!

Self-care does NOT have to be expensive!

When MOST people think about self-care, they associate it with luxurious trips to Paris or even a Full day Spa treatment. And although I am NOT debating that both are GREAT, I think it's IMPORTANT to understand that self-care does not have to be expensive. You do NOT have to spend tons of money to take care of self. Period! Think about it, what does self-care really mean to you? Does it mean spending lots of money to feel good, or does it mean doing the internal work that makes you feel good? To each's own, but this post will...
