Being productive all the time just isn't practical. The responsible thing to do is staying on top of your obligations like your career, family, and bills, sure, but there's nothing wrong with indulging in things once in a while. Self-care is a buzzword that has been floating around in the wellness space for quite some time now, but why do we actually need it?
We have talked about the idea of gift-giving before, and while more and more people seem tired of the struggle (think Christmas stress and spending) and ready to give the gift-giving up altogether, it doesn’t necessarily have to be so. While we would probably receive a unanimous “no” to the question of whether you would like to receive another unwelcome and useless item of the celebratory candle and tacky photo album variety, a meaningful and carefully considered gift would probably be welcome.
