Self-Care Is Not One-Size-Fits All

Self-Care Is Not One-Size-Fits All

You have to start giving up most of your vices in order to truly dedicate yourself to self-care and to larger causes. But there are healthy indulgences we can enjoy.

These are defined by small actions we can take that help us restore balance in our lives, and bring us joy and happiness.

Self-Care Is Difficult

It is much easier for us to make decisions that feel good right now (“quick-fixes”) than it is to have the discipline to make decisions that may suck now but feel really great later.

Self-care can be really hard because it’s a long-term play. But your well-being is worth the trouble.

Self-Care Is Not Self-Indulgence

  • Self-indulgence is the “excessive or unrestrained gratification of one’s own appetites, desires, or whims. Self-indulgent behaviors alter our mood or provide us with a means of temporary escape.
  • Self-care yields you long-term benefits without causing harm. And in a way, it’s a selfless act as it will make you a more engaged and impassioned person.

Self-Care Is Inclusive

Self-care has become a female-centered, elitist and commercialized activity often seen as frivolous and as an “occasional” practice. 

But self-care is for everyone and a collective goal, not a commodity good.

Your “Self” Is Bigger Than You

Self-care means putting ourselves first and we’ve been conditioned to believe this is wrong and selfish. But the “self” goes beyond the individual to include all the things we interact with.

When we practice self-care, we hone our interactions with everything around us: we protect the world around and do it better.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
