What is Self-Care?

Understanding Self-Care

Self-care refers to any actions you consciously and deliberately take to improve upon your life, focusing on physical, mental, and emotional health.

It’s not a luxury – it’s a necessity.

And it looks a little different for everyone.

Self-care activities are most commonly divided into 8 pillars (with plenty of overlap, because, well, it’s about life!).  I invite you to learn and explore the many ways self-care contributes to shaping life on the sunny side – for you.

Hi! I'm Lori...

I’m so glad you are here!

My name’s Lori, and I am a 50+ woman, just like you. (Truth is, I’ve had a few years already go by as a 50+ woman. Call me experienced in that regard!)

Have I always been a self-care champion? No, I haven’t. In fact, much of the content you’ll find here was inspired by my own journey toward confidence and self-love.

Self-care isn’t selfish. You give a lot – and you deserve to receive a lot, too, especially from yourself. As you’ll find within this site, self-care impacts every aspect of your life. I’m here to help you explore all the different ways self-care will shape your life – on the sunny side of 50.

We’ve been around a while – isn’t it time we showed a little more love to ourselves?
