This month’s Wellness Art comes from Jennifer Lioy, our creative and communications lead at Holstee.
When Jennifer first showed me a draft for this art, I asked her why she chose the words "take care" as her starting point. I loved her thoughtful response:
“I love the phrase ‘take care’ as a mantra for wellness because while it's most commonly used as a casual, sometimes careless way of saying goodbye, when you give it a moment of pause, it's actually a lovely message to wish someone (or yourself).
There’s no guilt implied, no judgment about what you should be doing buried underneath.
While taking care for me means spending time in the sun, sleeping soundly, eating roasted veggies, and not drinking too much coffee, maybe it looks completely different for you.
I hope this art serves as a helpful reminder to do whatever you need to feel good, content, and strong. Take care."
What do you need to do in order to “take care” of yourself today?
P.S. For me, this comes back to my daily non-negotiable habit that I shared in a past Reflections email.
