Unapologetic Self Care is. . .

"Why is it so hard to slow down, simplify, and care for ourselves?"

So often when we hear or read something about the benefits of natural, handcrafted soap we tune out and stop listening. It sounds like blah, blah, blah. . . natural. Blah, blah, blah. . . handcrafted. Yada, yada, yada. . . soap.

Yawn.

I get it. Really, I do.

But here’s a question. How often do you bathe or take a shower? Once a day? Several times a day? How often do you wash your hands in a typical day?

And when you do… What does the experience feel like?

Let’s pause for a moment and think about the soothing feel of warm water. Now let’s add soothing textures and aromas. Can you start to notice your breathing? Slowing down.

How has your day been? Do you think of where you will go when you leave this space and what you will do when you get there?

Our days are filled with competing demands - work, family, home – and trying to do our best at every turn. Life can be a constant, daily struggle with the juggle. As (over)committed, responsible, always-on-the-run individuals, we can lose sight of ourselves, our needs and desires.

We do so much for others….

I chose me.

Whether you are a shower buff, a bath enthusiast or a zealous hand washer, I’m here to remind you that we gain so much when we take in the small moments to

Slow. Down. Pause. and Breathe.

If just for a moment.

Even the simple act of washing our hands can provide moments of calm and the ritual of washing handscontemplation.

Finding, what I like to call, your sacred space helps you find your path to a more creative, productive self.

Stealing moments to refill, relax and to just-be seems undeserving or something we will get to later. I know… I fight this battle with myself too. But self-care is not selfish and over-indulgent.

 

It ain't just Soap.....

Unapologetic Self-Care is Essential Care.
