Be gentle with your body
The idea of something effective and powerful is often connected to decisive acts or final breakthroughs. To take charge of a situation, we sometimes tend to think that steadfast actions are more likely to garner results.
When it comes to self-care it is easy to think the same. Rough solutions - like old-school hard brushes or harsh body scrubs - are tied to the idea of an efficient solution for a thorough cleansing or purification.
But sometimes - when used without the required care - these hard methods can be counterproductive. When it comes to using effective products, treating your body delicately is way more powerful, and sensitive yet consistent care is usually way more beneficial - even for your mood.
So get yourself used to gentle treatment when it comes to taking care of your body, and think about dedicating those moments as an immersion into a dimension dedicated to yourself only.
