Ayesha Curry Says The Key To Prioritizing Self-Care Is Not To ‘Pour From An Empty Cup’

When it comes juggling motherhood, being the wife of an NBA megastar, along with her entrepreneurial endeavors, Ayesha Curry understands that you can only give from what you have, which is why self-care is a top priority for her.

In a recent interview with E! News, in collaboration with Amazon to support small and Black-owned businesses, Ayesha spoke to the power of self-care and how it’s played a role in her being able to show up for others.

“You can't pour from an empty cup,” she said. “So to be at your best for the people that rely on you, you have to take time to prioritize yourself.”

We all know how busy life can get with juggling busy schedules and duties at home. That's why Ayesha shares that finding small moments of care within your day can help give you the recharge you need.

“Maybe it's a skin routine at the end of the day, or taking 15 minutes to journal first thing in the morning,” she says. “Whatever that looks like for you, it's important to take the time and be consistent.”

Back in April, the 34-year-old spoke to People about her journey with finding balance within life’s many demands.

"The first step is accepting that balance doesn't really exist," Ayesha says. "We're all just out here doing our best. Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I don't — but I continue to show up for the things and people that matter, and that counts for a lot."

In the interview, Ayesha went on to share that while there’s a lot on her plate, she’s learned that leaning on her “village” — from family to friends — has been the greatest asset to her busy and fruitful life.

“I've been fortunate to be able to surround myself with people who share the same values, and that 'village' has allowed me to be at my best and helps make everything happen."

​Tour Interior Designer Annisa LiMara's Organic Modern Meets Midcentury Modern ATL Abode

In xoNecole's series Dope Abodes, we tour the living spaces of millennial women, where they dwell, how they live, and the things they choose to adorn and share their spaces with.

Annisa LiMara has called this space her home for two years. Her Atlanta sanctuary, which she aimed to give the look and feel of something you'd see in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest, embodies her vision of "stunning, yet functional and cozy."

"My home is a reflection of my brand, The Creative Peach Studios, and I am the 'Creative Peach,'" Annisa explains. "It was so easy to reflect who I am and my personal story in my space. When you walk into my home, you know that it is Annisa’s home. I’m so proud of that. So grateful."

When It Comes To Relationships...Why Is Love NOT Enough?

Charge it to the fact that I am such a fan of music, but whenever I’m out shopping, I tend to pay attention to what stores are playing. And if there’s one song that seems to show up just about everywhere, it’s a light rock classic by Don Henley and Patty Smyth entitled “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough.” I promise, even if you don’t know it by the title, you’ve heard it yourself, at least a dozen times in your lifetime — and whether that kind of music is your “scene” or not, the reality is that the words are true.
