My Week of Self-Care: A Photo Essay

Make the time, it's worth it.

As a college student, living in a house with friends and working, I feel like an adult with training wheels. I’m not completely on my own, but I’m still responsible for paying bills and making sure the front door’s locked at night. It’s fun, intimidating, and stressful.

I finally know what my mom meant when she said that days should have more than 24 hours. There’s never enough time to do it all. To keep up with studying, working, writing, and living the college life to the fullest. In the midst of all the living we’re doing, we forget to carve out time for ourselves to relax, refocus, and re-energize.

When it feels like time is of the essence, self-care can feel more like a chore than a pleasure. But at the end of the week, I genuinely feel calmer and happier, when I manage to take the time to spend with myself. I promise, an hour away from studying or being ~productive~ won’t kill you!

To keep myself on track, I enlisted my best friend to do a self-care week with me.



Bachelor Monday and Sparkling Rose with your BFF is the perfect way to start your week.
