“Ooh, I promised to myself that I’ma treat me right (Amen)…ooh, I try my best to never have a sleepless night. I’ll fight for me, and honestly I deserve some credit….”
I actually like a lot of Meghan Trainor‘s single because they’re typically upbeat, fun and positive. This Inspirational Jam from her, appropriately titled “Treat Myself” is a great reminder to be good to yourself, even though there’s already so much going on.
The song hit home for me because I lost myself a lot during this pandemic. A lot of us have. Every day is different, but I’ve struggled mentally and emotionally throughout all of this. And I certainly wasn’t taking proper care of myself and struggled to develop a good routine. It’s still a struggle. We’re all just trying to keep it together on a regular basis between work, family, and other activities we have going on…in a virtual landscape. So we forget about ourselves and our feelings sometimes.
Even in the midst of everything on your plate, it’s important to take care of yourself and treat yourself out to a good time now and then. After all, if you aren’t taking care of yourself, you can’t truly have the energy and mind to take care of others! So this song is a reminder to be good to yourself too.
I loved the song so much that I even made a reel on my Instagram with ways to treat yourself this summer (and beyond!)
Meghan really brought it with this one. Take a listen to the full song below!
