Self-care is something that everyone should practice

Why Self-Care Is So Important
Breathe in Life Blog

Self-care is something that we all can admit to neglecting sometimes, whether it be from stress from school, stress from life, or just flat out forgetting. But overall, self-care is SO important

Self-care itself can take many forms. From just relaxing and doing something that you love, or participating in a fun hobby, to taking the time to relax and pulling out one of those trusty Lush bath bombs, and taking a bubble bath. However, you do self-care, it's important regardless.

Self care is important for retaining a healthy relationship with yourself. Putting effort into yourself strengthens your sense of self love. Along with the physical aspect of self love, comes the emotional aspect also.

Participating in emotional self care helps you get rid of stress, and also helps you refocus your energy. It eliminates the whole "burnout" that happened when stress, and other emotional factors build up over time.

To me, the simplest form of self care is eating right, keeping good hygiene habits, and taking time to pamper myself. These small but simple changes in your life/ routine can make such a big difference. Simple things like face masks, a new perfume, a hair mask, all can make you feel so good.

Everyone should practice self care. No matter your gender, it can make your life so much better.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.
