Self-Care on the Brink of Destruction

How to know when “healthy” turns “harmful.”

Self-care is essential. But it can easily turn into a reason to mask our emotions or hide from responsibilities. Excuses like “I'll do it tomorrow,” or “this doesn’t count” lead to an escapism that robs our energy over time.

It’s a fine line between health and harm. Skipping parties can be good for one night, but can also lead to a sense of isolation. Stepping away from a project for our mental health may cause even more anxiety about it.

Real self-care is fluid. It can range daily from making informed decisions about medication, planning for our financial future, or simply surrounding ourselves with people who respect us.

Women still can’t play with men, even though many international cities don’t offer women’s leagues equivalent to mens’.

Everything is changing in DTLA, and some artists living at The Bendix want nothing less. Insecurity and change inspire art. But what happens when “up and coming” — becomes?

9 surfers might catch their first big break on California’s 50-foot Maverick waves. Big-wave surfing is unpredictable. But that’s something these 9 women are counting on for this season’s Maverick waves in Half Moon Bay.

Neon sheds light on escapism during times of turmoil in the U.S. Neon lights are everywhere and they seem to represent everything from surrealism and hyperreality to escapism, decadence, and decay. Could something so simple really represent so much about how we’re coping with this unprecented time in U.S. history?

Madeline’s Madeline. This portrayal of a bi-racial teenager with mental illness is reinventing the way cinema represents female relationships, growth, and creative expression. It’s messy. It’s wild. It’s unapologetically SHE.
