In this insane climate (political, social, and the actual climate), self-care is more important than ever. It's easy to be angry and fired up, and if we don't take time for ourselves, we will self-destruct. So yes, self-care is important. It is important to take time for yourself to relax. And lately, it seems as if self-care has morphed from a necessary part of life, and into a full-blown industry.
From bath bombs to essential oils to spa days, people have become obsessed with collecting self-care experiences without stopping to think about what they are doing for them. Self-care has become commodified to a point where it has lost all meaning. It is time to reclaim the concept of self-care, and the first step to doing that is to laugh at these hilarious jokes about it.
Self-care is all about treating yourself.And taking care of yourself! But the message seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle. So here are some hilarious tweets to bring us back!

Talking vs. thinkingTaking care of yourself means actually taking care of yourself. Not talking about taking care of yourself and secretly beating yourself up. Important distinction.
