Hello, tell us about yourself
“I’m 23 years old woman who loves arts, whales, otters, and I like to play piano and compose songs. I’m Clarissa Dewi. I’m from Jakarta and I’m finishing my bachelor’s study in psychology. I’m currently working as a piano teacher and sometimes, I do digital content writing.”
What is self-care to you and when do you feel you need it the most?
“Self-care for me is a moment where I spend time alone with myself. I do realize it’s very important to spend time with ourselves. It’s essential for us to know what we like and what we don’t like, and that you can only find when you’re alone.
I feel like I need self-care the most when I just feel really tired from everything, from drama of life.”
What is your favorite self-care ritual?
“I used to have acne on my face and that made me depressed. So, it’s very important for me to do self-care. I love putting on face mask and follow the 10 steps Korean skin-care routine. After I’m done with my face, I usually soaking my feet in salt water while playing with my phone.
Sometimes, I get myself a massage or just read a book and disconnect with my phone. I also like to play piano, compose songs, and I like to cook. That’s pretty much what I do when I feel I need self-care.”
Do you have a favorite inspirational quote and want to share it with us?
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.” Ecclesiastes 3:1, 3-4, 6-8, 12-13 NIV
