Why self care is so much more than pampering yourself

awakening narratives (video) self care Mar 30, 2021

Many people think self-care means things like bubble baths, scented candles and giving yourself a nice massage. Pampering yourself is lovely and I’m partial to a long soak in the bath myself. But, for me, that’s really only the tiniest fraction of what self-care is about. 

Self-care…or rather lack of self-care...has been a repeating cycle for me. I’ve had three major burnouts in my life and so I learned this the hard way. If you have also had a tendency to over-give, then maybe you can relate to my story? 


This is one of a series of narratives that shares stories from my own life in relation to spiritual awakening.
