Today is National Self Care Day

National Self Care Day
On National Self Care Day, it’s time to prioritize yourself!

With the daily grind of life, it’s easy to put everything and everyone above our own needs. Taking care of yourself is key to functioning properly. For optimum physical and mental health, we need to rest and take care of ourselves.

Today emphasizes self care and how important it is to prioritize this and make it a habit. National Self Care Day is a reminder to take a break and put yourself first.

Research shows that aromatherapy, with smells like citrus, have been proven to lower stress. If you don’t have any essential oils on hand, we have an even easier idea. Did you know that something as simple as swearing can ease stress, blow off steam, and even reduce pain? Go ahead and say some of your favorite curse words today in the interest of self care!

Doing something just for yourself that makes you happy increases your self-esteem. It’s your day, so make sure to indulge in whatever makes you feel good and keeps you healthy.

Today we bring you three sapphic books where massages play a role because this is one of TB’s favorite forms of self care.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
