I don't know about you but when I think of self-care, I immediately picture myself getting a massage on the beach, my face covered in avocado, and sliced cucumber on my eyes.
While that is true to some, I had to come to a quick realization that self-care doesn't always equate to going on vacation to escape from the responsibilities and realities of life. Sometimes it's getting in three balanced meals every day instead of being too busy to eat lunch, or getting at least 8 hours of sleep instead of priding myself on the late nights, early mornings grind.
While the self-care message has kind of gotten lost in the sauce lately, there's a way to make sure you're really indulging in it properly. Check out the gallery below:
Get Out A Good Cry If You Need To
Whew, there's nothing like letting out a good cry. While a shower cry is like a major breakthrough, an emotional moment can come at the most awkward and unexpected times.

But afterwards, it's like a weight has been lifted, and what you were going through no longer seems like this huge mountain you can't overcome. If you're feeling overwhelmed in your work life or personal life, take some time to cleanse your emotions.
