Life can be challenging. Self-care doesn't have to be.
Even when we know what mindfulness, meditation or self-compassion are, which are some forms of self-care, it can be challenging to put them into action. (At least I’ve found them to be!)
I created this site so we can have easy access to the best self-care resources which can help us become the best version of ourselves.
Twice a month you’ll get an e-mail with free self-care resources and practices so you can find the ones that work best for you without the stress of figuring it out on your own.
What is self-care?
Any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others. (source)

WHY SHOULD YOU BELIEVE ME?
BECAUSE I FAILED.
For years I failed taking care of my mind, body, and soul properly.
Until one day, life gave me a blindsided breakup which left me devastated, wondering the darkness of grief and loss in despair. That was my turning point. I took charge of my well-being, piecing together my brokenness and each day I started discovering my self on a brand new level of being.
Anxiety, depression, unworthiness, rejection, insecurities, grief, disordered eating-all these I had to face slowly throughout 2 years, and the road wasn’t pretty nor was it filled with scented bath bombs and pretty yoga mats.
It was a battle.
I was determined to fight for my wellness because I alone was responsible for it. I was in the arena and didn’t know what weapons I needed. I researched, practiced, took courses and diligently applied self-care practices daily.
They are now my new weapons, and I thrive because of them. So can you.
Because being a human is hard, but learning how to self-care doesn’t have to be.
