25+ Simple Ways To Celebrate Self-Care Month

By Katrina Scott on

Morning beautiful! As we move into September (side note...how is it already September?!), we’re celebrating National Self-Care Awareness Month!

Here at TIU, we believe self-care is a daily practice ~ every month, every year! But in honor of this special month, we encourage you to give your body, mind, and spirit a little extra love đź’›

Self-care looks different for everyone at different times — some days it’s taking a luxurious bubble bath, some days it’s just washing your hair! Some days it’s a workout, some days it’s a nap! The bottom line is listening to yourself and doing what YOU need to feel your best. 

Remember, taking care of you is an act of love and respect — not just for yourself, but for everyone in your life. It’s not selfish, it’s not lazy, it’s 1000% needed...and you deserve it!
