True Personalization.

When you try to plug and play someone else’s self care into your lifestyle, most of the time it’s going to feel against the grain. Either it won’t make you feel good or it won’t work within your schedule for a consistent routine.

Self care is the boat that takes us down the river on our journey. If we’re constantly palling out water on some days, but others are dry, we’re far more likely to remember the days that we think we’re not going to make it…


With consistency comes true personalization, and this requires really getting to know yourself. What you need out of your self care.
