Self-Care /sɛlfˈkɛː/ The practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.
Self-care is important. In a nutshell, it helps you maintain a healthy relationship with yourself. Pulling all-nighters to complete course work or clocking in extra hours at work can make you burn out. If you’re stressed out looking at your to-do list or anxious about what’s happening around the world, it’s time to take a step back and focus on yourself.
GLU believes self-care is essential for mental and physical well-being. Whether it’s to de-stress or just to treat yourself, it’s necessary to carve out some “me time”.
Some people like to cook or bake. Some people like to paint. We like to dive into our beauty drawers. GLU tribe member, Parvané does photography and makes videos, expressing herself creatively.
Who’s Parvané? She’s a Creative Consultant, Model and DJ. Take a peek at her curated feed on Instagram (@parvbar).
“Self-care to me means having a healthy relationship with yourself, being body positive and doing things you love that make you feel good. I believe beauty is having the freedom to truly be who you are without the need to be someone else.”
