The art of self-care has been around for centuries. While the methods may have changed and broadened over the years, the goal of each practice has remained the same – calm the nervous system, feel good and nurture health and wellbeing.
So many self-care practices that were once considered ‘alternative’ have now infiltrated our daily lives and are widely accepted i.e. yoga and meditation.
88% of consumers actively practice some form of self-care.
But thanks to social media and the internet, the self-care industry is a vast space, wide open for individual interpretation and implementation. Even a person’s morning coffee ritual can be considered a form of self-care.
