We are so excited to be kicking off our #CelebrateSelfCare photo challenge on Instagram today! Self-care takes many forms, and sometimes we don’t even recognize something we did as an act of self-care. We wanted to create this challenge to encourage more self-awareness around the little things we do throughout the day that are ways we take care of ourselves so we can start to shift our individual and societal narratives about self-care being selfish.
Self-care is treating ourselves with respect. It means we have even the smallest amount of self-awareness to know when to say “no” to that extra task or turn away that person who drags you down. It’s knowing how to set healthy boundaries for you to thrive out of a space that feels safe, sane, and held with love.
Even though it’s a photo “challenge,” it is not a challenge in the typical sense of the word; it is not a battle to compete with one another to compare how different people do self-care, it is more of a challenge to ourselves to see the beauty in what we think of as mundane, the love we show ourselves with the little things. It is an opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate how we take care of ourselves, recognizing that when we take care of ourselves, we are indirectly taking care of others.
We are filling our own love cup so that love can overflow and fill up the love cups of those around us. While self-care looks different for every person, it is in our differences that we have the opportunity to also celebrate our similarities - in this case, the similarity is the relationship we all have in common: the relationship we have with ourselves.
Follow along and participate in the #CelebrateSelfCare photo challenge with us on Instagram for your chance to win one of three $50 gift cards to our store, just in time for our big birthday sale to celebrate BEING founder Cynthia’s birthday on April 14th.
