Treat yo’ self! It is so much easier said than done. In the daily hustle, with a mile-long list of to-dos and everyone from kids to colleagues vying for attention, who even has the time for that?
Here’s the thing, taking time for ourselves shouldn’t be considered an indulgence; it’s a necessity. It may be cliché to say that “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” but it’s also true. The reality is that we can do nearly everything 24/7, and we never slow down. Taking a break feels selfish. Saying “no” seems callous. Spending money on ourselves looks greedy. We tell ourselves we can’t be “me first” when we deny ourselves the opportunity to be “me too”.
Treating yourself isn’t about luxury; it’s about consistently making yourself a priority. Maybe it’s daily yoga, journaling, or a monthly commitment to getting lunch with friends. Perhaps it’s finding time in the day to sit quietly with a good book and a cup of tea or making time finally to learn rock climbing. For you, maybe it is saying “no” to anything that doesn’t feel like a “hell yes!” Of course, luxuries like shopping and facials are also part of treating yourself, and you should never deny yourself some quality self- care!
This week, reflect and see what treat you need right now. And, if a colorful new bauble that adds a pop of color to a tired wardrobe is what you need, Rebel Nell has the perfect treat for you! You’ll want to look at our customizable jewelry– create the perfect earring, necklace, or bracelet. You can also add a monogram or nickname to our engravable jewelry. Go ahead; you’ve earned it.
As it turns out, you can say “yes” to yourself and still have plenty of space to care for everyone and everything else.
