  • Lately, my theme in life has been: self care and taking it slow, learning to not feel guilty for slowing down and giving more time to myself.

  • Back in December, Wilson and I were feeling really overworked and exhausted.

  • We talked about seriously needing to just go somewhere to refresh, do some yoga, and lay on a beach.

  • So a couple weeks ago, we finally got to spend a self care weekend in Cancun, allowing ourselves to do absolutely nothing: no schedule, no plans, no work.

  • Our main purpose was simply to relax and recharge.

  • It was SO nice.

  • Despite the rainy weather, we still had an amazing time resting and enjoying the resort.

  • Here are the simple self care things that we did:

  • Sleep in as much as we want.

  • Meditate.

  • Face masks.

  • Enjoy eating - a lot.

  • Exercise, to balance it out.

  • And of course, enjoy the beach, water, and the sun.

  • This was our first time planning a self care getaway and I loved it so much, I definitely want to do it again.

  • It's basically what my dream self care weekend looks like: a lot of sleeping, meditating, doing skincare, eating good food, doing some yoga, reading, and enjoying it all in a beautiful location.

  • Self care really starts with knowing yourself, knowing the things you love, the things that bring you joy, the things that refresh you and bring you back to life.

  • So ask yourself: What activities make me feel pampered and amazing?

  • Carve out some time this weekend to do some of those things.

  • I'd say, even do those things weekly or even daily, if possible.

  • To end this, I want to share a quote that's been helping me lately.

  • If you get tired, rest.

  • Don't quit.

  • Sometimes we get so tired or overwhelmed that we just want to quit.

  • I know I feel that way sometimes.

  • But here's a friendly reminder to rest, but don't quit.

  • You can always take your time and move slower if you need to.

  • It's better to move slowly than to quit altogether.

  • Once you've found your inspiration again, you can then keep going.

  • Thanks so much for watching and thanks so much for your support.

  • I am still in this transitional phase of unpacking, getting my life together in this new space and I'm also traveling a lot more this year for myself.

  • So I still haven't found a good routine for creating consistently, so thank you for sticking around and being patient.

  • I love you all so much, and I will talk to you guys next time.

  • Bye!
