A lot of self-care rhetoric has gotten mixed into the rise of “treat yo self” mentalities.
This is unsurprising, as capitalism likes us all best when we’re spending money. Our economic system is supremely skilled at neutralizing threats by turning them into commodities.
It’s had a lot of success in doing the same thing to the feminist movement, and it’s absolutely running wild with “self-care.”
Capitalism briefly convinced us, and many others, that the best way to take care of myself was to spend indulgently and snatch up any luxury that caught our eye.
Telling myself no to things that I do not need and that are not good for me is just as much a part of self-care as anything else.
Self-care culture encourages us to “set boundaries” that more often than not take the shape of flat-out neglect — whether that’s of our personal relationships or of our duties to ourselves and others.
The lie here is that neglecting responsibility does the exact opposite of preserving peace. It creates spirals of overwhelm that make it harder to approach a task every time we put it off.
The truth is that self-care often involves doing what needs to be done even if it’s not fun at the moment.
S elf-care means something entirely new to me now.
It asks me to look at my state of being and question what I need to do to enable myself to live the kind of life I most want in this world.
Am I taking care of myself physically? No product is a replacement for keeping my body well-nourished, well-rested, hydrated, and active.
Am I taking care of myself emotionally? I need time off to decompress and get introspective far more than I need expensive loungewear to do it in.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
