On Self-Care, in Theory and Practice

@KilgoreTrout great point. I often use spending time with my partner as an excuse to not do the things I need to do for myself.

On Self-Care, in Theory and Practice

@shalalas In a similar vein, I also really worry and think about the COST of self-care. I feel like self-care is often presented as "spend enough money on YOURSELF and you will be happy" when it's really "spend enough money on PRODUCT and you will try and be happy but maybe still not be."

When I really think about it, self-care is very much a luxury. Of money, but also really of time. Even things like yoga and meditation, which one can do without money, require the luxury of time. This is not a criticism so much as something that I would like to keep in mind as I think about my own self-care.

On Self-Care, in Theory and Practice

I think this is great, and really interesting and I know I've struggled with this since moving to a new city a month ago. I guess what I need is a way to MOTIVATE myself to do the things I know I need to do. I know I need to buy furniture, unpack my shit, decorate my room, etc. but I don't do it. Like, somebody do my self-care for me? Which, obviously, needs to change.

I will say that while I like the idea of recommending certain products, etc., it felt really out of place here, very consumerist. I know there are different aspects to self-care, and everyone does it differently, but it felt weird / maybe name-droppy to mention specific brands. I guess my first step is figuring shit out for myself, rather than turning to physical things. But I do that too, a lot, so I can't be too hypocritical.

@Noelle O'Donnell seriously, garlic is like MAGIC. I tried it overnight for the first time w/ BV and the next day i was fine again. Granted, i waited a few days before trying it, so *maybe* it naturally went away....but I will forever use garlic.

@commanderbanana THAT PEPPER BOTHERS ME SO MUCH. I stared at it for a while trying to think of a way to make it make sense, but nope.
