Empowering Self-Care: Embracing the ‘Girl Math’ Equation for Wellness

We’ve been seeing the Girl Math trend on Twitter and Tiktok and we absolutely love it. If you’re a social media girlie and you have no idea what we’re talking about, ‘Girl Math’ is basically a way of describing the way that women justify spending money on things that they want, even if they can’t really afford them. For example, a tweet might say something like:

“Just used Girl Math to buy myself a new pair of shoes. I told myself that I needed them because they will help me walk faster to work, which will save me time, which will make me more productive, which will earn me more money, which means that I can afford the shoes in the first place.” But it doesn’t only apply to money. It applies to relationships, food, fashion, everything. If it makes sense to us, then it’s ‘Girl Math’.

And, our ‘Girl Math’ equation for wellness: 

Self-care + Community = Wellness. Taking time for ourselves is amazing and important, but having a supportive community around us while doing it, even better! 

Welcome to class, let’s tell you about this equation.

We think of self-care not as an indulgence, but as an investment in ourselves. Taking care of ourselves will ultimately make us more productive, energized, and happy. We all deserve to feel that way! So that’s why being part of a community makes it feel complete. It could be your friends, family, or a support group. 

We can support each other in so many ways. Maybe it’s something as simple as a quick text to check in, or scheduling a lunch date to catch up. Whatever it may be, connecting with others can give us the motivation and encouragement we need to keep pushing forward.

Now we know some of you may be thinking, “I’m an introvert and I like my alone time.” And that’s fine! We all have different needs when it comes to social interaction. But keep in mind that there are plenty of ways to engage with a community that don’t necessarily require constant socializing.

For example, attending a yoga class or joining an online support group are both great ways to connect with others who share similar interests and values. Sometimes, it’s simply about finding a way to incorporate a sense of community into our daily routines.

So let’s make self-care and community a priority in our lives. Remember, we’re all in this together and there’s nothing more empowering than lifting each other up.
