Lena Dunham and Importance of Time For Yourself | Instagram

Listen Up! Lena Dunham Has an Important Message We All Need to Hear

Yes, we've all heard it before — to put you first, to take some time away from your daily craziness to centre your thoughts and your soul. But seriously! Lena Dunham is here to remind you to really make that happen. Just as inspiring as her genuine honesty and openness about her struggles with anxiety, you'll totally appreciate her recent candid Instagram post with the caption, "TBH this was a rough week. It felt like my body, my hormones, my general sense of well-being were betraying me." She was struggling trying to find some time to be alone without hurting other people's feelings. She went on to say, "I am certainly no self-help guru but here is what I know tonight: when you take the time and space you need, kindly and responsibly, you're suddenly available to the people you love in a whole new way." Amen to that.

Find what makes your inner you happy, what centres you, what restores your energy and makes you feel whole again. Whether it be to take a walk by the ocean, sip a hot tea, do some Sun Salutations, soak in a bubble bath, sing, paint, or just meditate. Because a little routine and necessary self care goes a long, long way.
