11 Tips On How To Take Care Of Yourself

Love yourself, honey, because you are BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, and a BLESSING!

Lately, most people have been talking about self-care and giving examples on how to do that because we want to let people know it’s important to take care of yourself before trying to take care of others. I want to talk about the importance of self-care.

It’s always good to be kind to others and care for them in their time of need. It shows the type of person you are. While trying to make sure everyone around you is okay and taken care of, you sometimes tend to forget yourself which is normal because we have that feeling we are being selfish for thinking about ourselves. That’s not true. It’s very important to make sure you are happy and healthy. Here are my tips for taking care yourself!

1. Take time for yourself

It’s good to care for others and being there for them. You are also important too so take time for yourself. All you have is you at the end of the day and it’s only one you so make sure you take care yourself.

2. Eat healthily

Eat healthily and take care of your body. It’s hard because there is so much tasty food around and it’s easy to grab but make better choices so your body can be healthy.

3. Color, doodle, or read

This is a great way to take time for yourself and relax.

4. Be around people that make you happy

It’s always good to be around people that make you happy and love you for you. Go out with friends and have a great time.

5. Meditate

Meditation can help you become relax and recharge so you can continue to go through your day.

6. Rest

Resting is very important. Your body needs to get as much rest as possible. Yes, it’s hard because of college, work, and other things in life but whenever you get the chance, make sure to rest.

7. Think positive

When you wake up in the morning, speak that it will be a great day. Even if it sucks, be thankful you were able to be alive to experience the day and can’t wait to have a better one. Always think positive and don’t let anyone still your shine.

8. Enjoy life

Life can suck sometimes and be difficult but there are so much more to life than what people think. Enjoy your life and if you want to make it better, work towards your dreams. It’s never too late to work towards the life you want.

9. Write in a journal

Journaling can help you be able to express how you feel and write down all the goals you want to accomplish.

10. Treat yourself!!!!

I love this goal because it’s true. Treat yourself to some shopping, nails, hair, and facials. You deserve to treat yourself like the Queen or King you are!

11. Love yourself

The most important one. Always love yourself. It’s important that you love everything about you because there is only one of you. You should embrace yourself and be proud of who you are. Don’t allow society to tell you otherwise. Love yourself, honey, because you are BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, and a BLESSING!

I Stopped Wearing Makeup For A Week And I've Never Felt More Confident

You don't need makeup to look and feel beautiful if you don't want to.


I began wearing makeup in middle school for special occasions. Whenever there was a school dance, I'd don on some mascara and I would feel beautiful. This continued until the end of my sophomore year of high school when I decided that putting on makeup would become part of my everyday morning routine. Eventually, wearing makeup was something people expected to see rather than something that I wore on occasion.

Things stayed the same until my freshman year of college. There were some days during my first year in college that I couldn't be bothered to wear makeup, because I was in a rush. However, whenever these days occurred, I usually had friends ask me why I was so tired and if everything was okay. I have prominent bags under my eyes that I usually cover up with a concealer, and though I slept enough and tried many remedies, they just wouldn't disappear. Without my makeup though, my friends were concerned and thought that something might be wrong. While they had good intentions, I thought that I must not look good without my makeup.

From then on, I started wearing makeup every day, no matter what. If I went to grab some food quick, I had to wear makeup. Review session for math on Saturday in the morning? Makeup. Volunteering for a club? Makeup. Class? Makeup, always makeup. If there was any chance that I would run into someone that I knew I had to put on makeup because I felt that I would be judged and wanted to look my best at all times.

When I started taking an 8 a.m. class this semester, something changed.

One day, I was running late and was rushing to get to my class on time. I didn't have time to put on any makeup before class. At first, I was self-conscious without any makeup covering up my circles and I felt naked. I thought that people would notice, but I don't think that anyone even noticed. The following week, I had exams and felt that getting a few more minutes of sleep was much more satisfying than putting on makeup, so I went without any makeup that week. At first, I was still self-conscious of not having anything on my face to cover up the imperfections, but as the week wore on, I felt free. Without any makeup, I never had to take any off at night. Normally my mascara takes forever to get off, which is a hassle. Also, I felt that without the makeup, I felt like I looked better over time. I was more confident about how I looked with and without the makeup.

Since that fateful week of not wearing makeup, I've found that not wearing any makeup to be extremely freeing. While I do still sometimes put it on, it is no longer a necessity. If you wear makeup constantly, I suggest trying to go without wearing makeup for a few days. There's nothing wrong with wearing makeup, and there also isn't anything wrong with not wearing makeup either.
