Self Care Support

Mental health has been on my brain as of late; in a good and productive kind of way! I was recently invited to be on a panel at TwitchCon this past weekend, and we discussed creating a community of support in the gaming community. It was an incredibly informative panel and I just want to say here, I’m absolutely on board when it comes to breaking the stigma around mental health. For information regarding creating a supportive community, check out this page —>>>

This brings me to a second point! Before we can help others, we need to take care of ourselves. I’ve taken a step back from blogging as of late, because the stress of trying to fit it into my schedule just wasn’t healthy. But recently, this something came across my path and I really wanted to share!
Treating yourself is super important. Some people consider it to be selfish, but in reality taking care of yourself is important for all facets of your life. If you find yourself stressed a lot lately or unable to relax, a lot of the time it’s because you’re in need of some TLC!
Of course, knowing you need to take care of yourself is one thing. (and if you’re like me, sometimes the concept is altogether unsettling and you have to deal with overcoming that first!)  But brainstorming the best way to do so is another thing! Because, Gifts has created an interactive guide to help you pick the best self care idea for you. There are over 90 options to choose from, with ideas ranging from stargazing outside to seeing a stand-up comedy show. Plus, there are some inspiring quotes sprinkled throughout to help you stay inspired (and I love me some quotes), giving you no excuse not to do something nice for yourself this weekend! So please check out this guide; it’s fun and it’s important to remember you deserve to relax and do things for yourself 🙂

This Etsy store has the most beautiful crystal chandeliers! They’re simple and delicate and I want them all over my apartment. I love crystals and I’ve never seen anything like these before. There are even some with lights intertwined!

THIS IS SO ADORABLE!!! A whimsical Ford Anglia brooch for all my Harry Potter lovers!

Now for some Disney.. how impressive is this wire ring?? This Etsy shop is full of creative wire designs of all different types, they’re all so fun!

I wish I went to the beach/pool more so I had an excuse to buy some of these awesome towels! I don’t know when this round towel/shaped towel style became a thing, but I am very much on board!

I really love this small self-care guide, I wholeheartedly agree with all it’s suggestions. No purchase required with this favorite thing 😉
