Summer Self-Care & Wellness Day

For some people, summer is the time for beach vacations, sightseeing, swimming, and BBQs. For others, however, the summer can be a stressful time – kids are home from school and it’s challenging to find events to keep them busy and happy for 3 months. Work can be slow for many industries in the summer months, and the heat itself can be dangerous and stressful for everyone.
We rarely make time for self-care in our busy lives, but it’s truly essential for having a full and well-rounded life. In the event that you are a primary caregiver (especially to children or elderly adults), if you aren’t taking care of your own needs, you have nothing left to provide to others. It’s essential to work on your own self-care to stay healthy, happy, and balanced.
As we all strive to achieve holistic balance in our lives, The Cupcake Girls are providing a “Wellness Day” to our clients to help adult entertainers who are interested in learning methods of self-care as part of a balanced and holistic lifestyle. This year we are focusing on mindfulness, balance, and nourishing ourselves in order to have the energy we need to give to others.
For the first time, we are having Wellness Day in both cities on the same day to coordinate efforts for the clients we work with and we could not be more excited!
We wanted to feature some of the areas we will be focusing on at Wellness Day, and promote our partners who are joining us for this event. We are honored to work with such amazing, generous, and kind people!
