Spectrum Talks: Why is Self-Care Important?

Spectrum Talks: Why is Self-Care Important?

Wondering why self-care is important? Well, at Spectrum, we’re big on wellbeing and we think looking after yourself both mentally and physically should always be a top priority. Self-care means something different to everyone though, doesn’t it?

We wanted to learn more about self-care and the different ways we unwind – so what better way than asking you babes! Our Spectrum Talk on Twitter covered all the bases, from relaxation tips to skincare routines. Here’s what we learned.

Self-Care Means Different Things to Different People 

When you hear the words ‘self-care’ you probably think of something specific, like meditation, but the reality is that self-care can mean a lot of different things.

We love the idea that self-care is about giving yourself what you need – whether that’s support from friends and family, time to be mindful, or even some trashy tv.

Being ‘selfish’ sounds like a bad thing, but it’s not! You can look after your health and wellbeing with different types of self-care:

  • Physical (sleep, healthy food, exercise)
  • Emotional (kindness, stress management, forgiveness)
  • Social (communication, socialising, support)
  • Spiritual (meditation, yoga, journaling)

Your Top Self-Care Ideas

So, what’s your ultimate self-care routine?

Honestly, this sounds dreamy.

You gave us so many self-care ideas – from pampering yourself with face masks and candles, to listening to music and taking time out from social media. At the end of the day, no one knows what you need better than you do!

Self-Care in Lockdown

Lockdown has been a pretty hard time for all of us and we’ve been looking after ourselves in different ways. So, what does self-care in lockdown look like?

This sounds like us! Spending time doing what you love is pretty amazing for your mental health, whether that’s makeup or…

How Important is Skin Care?

Maybe you’re blessed with naturally glowing skin or maybe (like the rest of us) a little TLC goes a long way! In any case, sticking to a skin care routine isn’t just cosmetic – it can be therapeutic too.

You gave us a lot of great skin care tips – like taking the time to understand what your skin needs.

Just like skin care, makeup can also be a self-care activity – here’s MUA Katie Jane Hughes talking about makeup as meditation.

Invest in Yourself

We loved chatting to you about self-care. The main thing to remember is that whatever your self-care routine looks like, it’s important to invest time and energy into your wellbeing. So tune out, relax, maybe light a candle, and follow us on Twitter for more Spectrum Talks.
