Are we becoming increasingly self-obsessed with ‘self-care’ as a new consumer driven craze or are we becoming more self-aware?

If we are becoming more self aware, how long do we still dwell focusing on the self before we see it is only a bridge to broader awareness beyond our individual selves?

Expanding further beyond our physical needs or wants, our emotional desires and our mental chatter to something more. Something even greater…

Let’s unpack self care from a consumer hype perspective, escapism and numbing out. To exploring what healthy Self-Care looks like, how it weaves with Self-Love and why from there we find the bridge to Living Truth. Including the boundaries and the sacrifices it requires, to prepare us ultimately to care for ALL.

Stella Excerpt

“…is it time to question your Self Care Go-To’s? Do they – meaning what you’re choosing – take care of you; body, emotions, mind, spirit? Or, do they just give you a chance to block out the world and the worries for a moment. Which is cool, at times. But you need more than that. That isn’t true Self-Care. It’s self-distraction, numb out, escapism. You can’t thrive like that, you can’t evolve like that. You can’t live your most caring, loving, healthy, abundant life like that.”

Takeaway Gem

Living Truth when it comes to Self Care means being true to you and then taking action on it. A consistent, commitment to take care of yourself in all aspect of who and what you are. So that you are able to live authentically, healthily, joyfully best you can – knowing we all go through phases, and cycles, challenges and not so great days. The deeper, more honestly you CARE the closer you can be to self-acceptance, compassion, kindness, non-judgment and humility of yourself too. That’s the self-love part that can fit in right beside or even weave together with self care.”

Take wonderful care of you.
