2021 is the Year of Self-Care!

2021 is the Year of Self-Care!

It feels like we collectively refer to 2020 as the year we “survived.” It was challenging for e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e., but we are acutely aware of the struggles that women experienced. Thankfully, the pain pushed us to embrace the value of self-care.

We’ve noted an overwhelming number of articles promoting self-care as the salve to our 2020 pangs. (Check this one out: 2020 Was Relentless For Parents. In 2021, It's Time To Put Ourselves First.)

Yep, it appears as though 2021 is the Year of Self-Care. 

We know (and love) that self-care is different for everyone — rest, boundaries, movement, goals, and everything in between. The point is that we need to choose to be kind to ourselves and pick self-care goals that are simple and purposeful. 

Want a simple way to start?

Try this. It’s like a drinking game but for your mental health...

You know those ubiquitous Instagram posts that say “just breathe”? (Uh, thanks, Becky. I have a mortgage, marriage, and kids…you breathe.) Well, every time you see one, instead of just hearting and scrolling to the next post, use it as an actual prompt. When you see the “just breathe,” flip your phone over and take 10 slow, deep belly breaths. That’s it. Will all your problems disappear? Nope. But it helps.

That is just one trick. All year, we will share simple, realistic tips to incorporate more self-care into your life. If there is one thing we can agree on in 2021: self-care isn’t selfish. It will actually make you a better friend, mom, daughter, partner, human.
