Happiness Through Self-Care
When was the last time you sat down and really indulged yourself for 20 minutes, without feeling guilty about it?
This is partly the result of society. We are so driven and so determined, so brainwashed into being constantly productive and efficient, that we punish ourselves for our human failings and weaknesses.
We have forgotten how to be kind to ourselves.
This is why the time is right for the #self-scare movement.
This is why people are starting to take bubble baths, to practice mindfulness, to go for long nature walks, and to keep bullet journals.
All these activities have one thing in common: they involve looking after ourselves. They involve pampering ourselves, and spoiling ourselves. And they involve learning to be kinder to ourselves and to give ourselves a break.
When you do that, suddenly you will find that life regains its color and that you finally have some energy and enthusiasm again! You find that you have things to look forward to again, and you learn that you actually like yourself again.
