“You cannot pour from an Empty cup.” I’m sure we have all heard this before, but do we really know what this means? It means that if I don’t take care of me first, I cannot be the best wife, mom, mentor or friend. Don’t the flight attendants tell us to put our mask on first before helping others?
So what exactly is self care? The textbook definition is “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.” Whew!
Self care isn’t just getting a massage or a facial. It can be meditation, taking a long walk, sending someone to voicemail, hiding in a closet from your kids or having afternoon tea. You weren’t expecting that one were you?
Having afternoon tea is a form of self care and here are the reasons:
- Health benefits. That’s right, tea is great for your skin, hair, and body!
- Girl time. Having tea with a friend is the perfect way to catch up. Pinkies up and phone down (you can’t sip tea with it in your hand)!
- Dressing up ALWAYS makes me feel good! Slay honey!
Afternoon Tea is served at the Le Salon in the Windsor Court hotel on Fridays at 2:00 pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Sip from a selection of 26 of the finest loose-leaf variety brews while you listen to melodies from a harpist or pianist. Enjoy an assortment of delicious tea sandwiches as you enjoy one of the bougiest pastimes.
