Self Care: An Essential Service
I think the term Self Care should become a part of every humans vocabulary. People often confuse the term "Selfish" with "Self Care". I proudly carve out time for myself with none of "mommy guilt" or worries about being perceived as selfish. To me what is selfish is a person who runs themselves ragged and is a sub par parent, partner or friend. Someone who is so focused on what other's think that they spend all their time trying to live up to someone else's thoughts or the delusion that you have imagined in your head of what people are thinking. I know so many mother's who work so hard but find it difficult to take time to care for themselves and it sadly shows.
It is my personal belief that if you do not care for yourself all other area's of your life suffer. There are several ways to care for yourself. Take a bath, go for a walk, do yoga, read, spend time with friends, take a nap, exercise, get a hobby, and more.
When I can, I go to my favorite local spa for a treatment or two. In the beach side town of Cayucos, California is Illuminate Spa Owned and Operated by a gorgeous soul named Naomi. We have had the pleasure of working together for my eBoutique Evolution Vintage but I have also enjoyed several treatments at her lovely day spa.
Naomi along with her friendly and professional staff have serviced both my husband and I. May I suggest the massage, facial AND the hot steam tent with dry brushing and mud application. Enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne, lavender or lemon water. Truly heaven. These treatment are affordable to all, it's just about prioritizing.
