For Women Only

Self-care has ALWAYS been marketed to women since well..forever. πŸ’†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Why? Because society has told us that women have it harder than men, that they spend their time providing for others, and are easily overwhelmed. πŸ˜’

We’ve been told that women are sensitive and need time to unwind to take care of themselves in order to be mentally and physically 100%. For women, self-care πŸ§–πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ was seen as a necessity.

But what about men? Are men made out of steel and do not need the same self-care? πŸ€” Men have ALWAYS been looked upon as the strong, impenetrable beings who do not need to take breaks. Being a man was about how much you can β€œhandle” or β€œbear” in your daily life. Needing or wanting self-care as a man would be seen as a weakness. 😞

WRONG.

Society has shoved this mentality into our 🧠 for too long. Men are in need of self-care JUST AS MUCH AS WOMEN. πŸ’― Men are constantly providing for others to the point of mental and physical breakdowns. Self-care is not just spa days and massages. It’s so much more than that.

Guys, check out my latest YouTube video for tips on taking care of YOU. You come first.

And ladies, your guys need a break from life just as much as you do. Encourage your man to take time out for himself. That is unless you enjoy an overworked, stressed out partner. You can thank me later. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
