Oct. 7th- Self-Calendar

Last Saturday the Campus Women’s Center hosted a calendar making event entitles Self-Calendar. The goal of this event was for attendees to make their own calendars and planners and use this opportunity to schedule acts of self-care into their daily lives.

What is self-care? Self-care is provided “for you, by you”. Self-care is about taking proper care of oneself and treating oneself with kindness. Self-care comes in all shapes and forms and is determined by what makes you feel happy and secure. For me, just attending Saturday’s event was an act of self-care, allowing myself to take time out of my busy day to do something for myself, something that I fully enjoy.

"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." -Audre Lorde
