Get Inspired by Adriana Escobar

IMG_7841.jpgHello, tell us about yourself

“My name is Adriana. I’m 25. I’m a counseling psychologist. I was raised in Latin America but moved to Europe 6 years ago to pursue my studies. After graduating, one year ago, I’ve been focusing a big part of my life on improving my health and overall wellness. I’m always eager to learn more and self-care is definitely one of my favorite topics.”

What is self-care to you and when do you feel you need it the most?

“My definition of self-care is making time for myself to nourish my mind, body, and spirit. Taking some time off from all the craziness in life and doing the things I love. I believe that self-care is a constant thing, it’s a way of life. It must be practiced all the time.

Self-care is tuning into our minds and bodies and listening to what they’re saying (whether that means taking a pause or making changes). It’s eating real food. It’s looking after our health. It’s walking, our bodies were meant to move. It’s getting enough sleep. Don’t buy into more is more. REST. Stress is more toxic than any supplement that we’re taking can undo. It’s also taking some time to do the things that make us happy and make us feel well as a whole.

Once again, to me, self-care is a way of life and I try to implement this every day as much as I can.”

What is your favorite self-care ritual?

“Definitely lighting some candles and putting my favorite music on.”

Get Inspired by Jilly

jillyHello, tell us about yourself

“Haii I’m Jilly! I’m 24 years old and currently live in the Netherlands. I’m actually half Dutch and half Indonesian. Even though I was born and raised in Indonesia, I’m a Dutch citizen. As advised by my parents, I decided to take the opportunity to work and study in the Netherlands. It’s been 4 years now.

I am the kind of person who loves trying something new. And since I’m Indo, I’m blessed to see the difference between the two culture. I noticed that being different is unique and is a platform to try many cool things.”

What is self-care to you and when do you feel you need it the most?

“To me, self-care is how you can guide yourself into something positive, because when we bring something positive, it means we’ve done something good to ourselves. By positive I mean how we grow, build a character, and open to learn new things. You don’t have to spend money to take care of yourself, just start with yourself.

Hmm I don’t have specific time to practice self-care, because I think we have to take care of ourselves all the time. Regularly practicing self-care helps to stabilize my emotion.”

What is your favorite self-care ritual? 

“Away from the crowd, in a good way though. I think it’s best for me. I like that it gives me time to reflect on myself, relax, and recharge my energy. I’m the kind of person that after meeting people, I need to take my own space to recharge my energy.”

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote and want to share it with us?

“I’m convinced that the execution is more important than having an idea”
