In last week’s XOMU, I shared micro-self-care moments; tiny things I do throughout the day that help me feel more happy, comfortable, and cared for. (My first example was “peeing when I need to, instead of holding it until I finish this email.”)
I received an immediate follow-up from Ashley on Instagram: “Would you consider sharing your favorite lotions, candles, and socks?” Of course I would—with links, no less! I’ve got pricier and budget versions for each category, and Your mileage may vary, in that what I think smells or feels delicious may not be what you think smells or feels delicious, but here’s what I’m using and wearing these days as part of my self-care.
(Note, I haven’t been narrating posts that are heavily image and link based, like this one or my Kiss, Marry, or Kill series—you really need to head to the print version to get the benefit of those. If you disagree and think a narration would be of value, share that in comments please!)
