Part 8: Is Self-Care Time-Consuming?

March 8, 2020 | Written by COVE Admin


There is often a stigma associated with the amount of time it takes to practice self-care, especially with our current endless workdays during the ongoing pandemic. Many people feel like they do not have time to practice self-care because there isn’t enough time in the day to finish their work or complete their responsibilities. Self-care, however, as we mentioned many times in our blog, can take any shape or form. Self-care can mean taking ten seconds to breathe or scream or cry before the next Zoom meeting. It can mean taking an actual lunch break and eating a bag of chips. Self-care can also mean taking a 30-minute bath at the end of a grueling week. Self-care does not need to be time-consuming!


Here at COVE, we are split on our beliefs. Some of us feel that self-care is time-consuming, while others believe that it is not. Regardless of where we stand, we all agree on one thing: self-care is worth taking the time to implement into your daily practice. Here are some of our beliefs and some tips and tricks for time-friendly self-care!
