At KNOT OKAY., we are BIG on self care and it’s more than just a growing trend. Atleast that’s what it feels like on Pinterest and the daily Instagram scroll.
Why are so many chanting SELF CARE or SELF LOVE? While stress had already been given the title of ‘health epidemic of the 21st Century’, COVID in the last year has come along and knocked us out of the park. From Google trends, we can see that a search of ‘self care’ spiked in April, correlating to all those memes about how our 2020 was looking. we certinaly did not have 20 20 vision about what was coming our way. As a result of the global pandemic, we have been increasingly tired and drained, feeling overwhelmed and not necessarily focussed on our long term goals. Travel seems to be a distant memory and our racing thoughts mean that we can’t seem to concentrate as sharply which makes us irritable and angry. AHH – What do we do?!
The act of taking time to ourselves and it is anything but selfish! Self care means that we are taking care of ourselves so that we can then be well and extend this act to those around us. So if you want to help your love ones around you, it’s time to get serious about helping yourself first!
Now is the time to take a moment to yourself and pick one thing that you are going to do for YOU today.
