It’s looking kind of apocalyptic out there, and all of us are struggling. Self-care, always a necessity, is no longer something we can put on the back burner. We can’t expect our mental health to take care of itself, and we can’t afford to neglect ourselves anymore.
I can’t use boudoir magic to make people feel better right now, but I’m going to be here helping nonetheless. So this is the beginning of a series of self-care challenges, ideas, and inspirations. I want you to come out of this healthy and strong, so make yourself a priority! It’s times like this that we need to pull together, support each other, and find new ways of strengthening our resilience.
Use that old-fashioned device, the tel-e-phone, and call someone you don’t usually. A childhood friend, someone you used to talk to but have fallen out of touch with for no good reason… grab a cup of cocoa or glass of wine and take the time to reconnect.
If you’ve got phone anxiety, here’s a trick to beat it; at the moment you think of who to call, count, 5-4-3-2-1 and then do it. No thinking. It’ll be fine once you’re in, I promise!
