Self-care is far more than superficial enjoyment. Quite honestly, those perks are only a minute fraction of what caring for one’s self really looks like and consists of. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for relaxing in a massage chair while having my feet rubbed and scrubbed – away from the demands of day-to-day life, when all of the attention is on me and my needs in that moment; however, let’s be clear here: You can go to the spa every week, never miss a hair, nails, and feet appointment, take a vacation every month, and have a closet full of clothes and shoes, yet still not have a clue how to care for yourself.
