Here at Pretty Mushroom, we have been interested in topics surrounding self-care/wellness. The term self-care specifically is starting to become an overused buzzword in marketing and news outlets. Separating out what self-care means for you personally means ignoring a lot of marketing jargon and messaging. We all have to remember that self- care doesn't have to be expensive or exclusive. Given that, we are introducing an interview series where we ask people what self-care and wellness mean to them. Here, we interview Danielle Alvarez @Zelue Wellness, wellness advocate, lifestyle + Christian blogger, and pediatric nurse practioner.
