Imagine if we treated
ourselves with the same care and love
that we share with others…

This is your prescription for self-care

In other words, this is your permission to indulge in some much-deserved you time.

This blog is a place for overextended, time-poor people to find inspiration, to recharge, and to take time for self-love without shame or the feeling that other important parts of life will suffer.

Just like a provider writes prescriptions for medical treatment, your prescription for self-care is authorization to treat yourself with kindness, and gently reminds that your well-being is worth protecting.

Your first prescription, with unlimited refills, reads: self-care, apply generously as needed, and please do, friend, you deserve it.
