Hi! My name is Anouk. I am a dance enthusiast, food lover and dog momma of Bobby.
I founded Take Care of Your Selfie at the beginning of 2019 because I experienced what the power of good self-care means. The platform is here to inspire and stimulate you to take good care of yourself because it is often forgotten whilst so important. Self-care to me means to live and create from a place of overflow. An overflow of love, power and confidence.
Self-care is not selfish, it’s caring for yourself and others!
I know the pain, the struggles and the stress of being a millennial living in a lively city. I overcame a burn-out and finally do the things that make me happy. The best thing of all: by making sure I am happy, I inspire people around me to do the same and make them happy too. I love to connect with people, to connect people with one another, storytelling and motivate and inspire others.
Jazzy van Wersch
Hi! My name is Jazzy, my four sisters (and of course my mom and dad), chocolate, peanut butter and cappuccino's are the loves of my life.
As long as I can remember, dancing is my way of self-expression. When I am out of words, I dance. It is an universal language, which connects and unites. We all have two legs made to move, so you can dance and communicate to people in that way.
I am a kids dance teacher, I love the pure connection with children. Because of my work, I remember how important it is to feel and allow your raw emotions. The kids give me energy and teach me to be curious and wonder about the world. They show that every day starts like a new party full of surprises.
I invite you to connect with your inner child and to be amazed of the world every single day. Get to know yourself and your body through dance and embrace and embody your emotions. Smile, celebrate and dance through life!
Nina van de vinne
Hi! My name is Nina. I am a proud dog mom, Spanish music enthusiast and I love broccoli.
I believe even the smallest step can lead to something great. You don't need to be a world leader to make an impact on your own world. As someone who has been battling burn-out for years, I have seen the importance of sharing our experiences with each other. Talking and writing about difficult topics makes them more accessible. This is exactly why I joined TCOYS! By reaching out to people who are experiencing the same as I have - and so many others with me - hopefully seeking help will feel less shameful, strange or confrontational.
Don't forget to take care of your selfie today.
Johanna Maria Stumpf
social media expert
Hi! My Name is Johanna Maria. I am a big nature and outdoor lover. Building a cabin or tree-house is one of my forest fairy dreams.
For years I was feeling a deep void with depression and anxiety. Although I achieved so much, I was longing for love, belonging, depth, connections and a purpose. With a burnout everything collapsed - inside and outside. I embarked deep into my self for self-understanding, healing and transformation. The reality is that going deep is terrifying. Buried under a lot of conditioning, pain, fear and sadness I reconnected with my inner child. It isn't about becoming, but unveiling of who I am in my essence. Real and raw. Vulnerable and sensitive. Strong and playful. Curious and innocent. Joyful and Love.
Acknowledging where I am in my own process with loving awareness is a daily practice and self-love its foundation. That's where TCOYS crossed my path. A beautiful synchronicity.
Hi! My name is Saartje, I'm a plant-powered fairy-believer who loves the sea and is a little too often lost in her dreams.
I think I can describe myself as someone who is very open-minded. I always tell people they can tell me everything and I will never raise an eyebrow. For me being open-minded is much more than only social related, it plays a bigger role in staying curious and in being a student to everything around me. In my opinion humans will never reach true knowledge about something, and by knowing that I think our ego will slowly minimize (less ego is more space for love). I think I love being a student of nature the most, when I truly connect with it, it teaches me the most beautiful things I have ever learned like serenity, love, peace and bliss...
It may sound cliché but I believe in sharing is caring. That's why I love being part of TCOYS, to share thoughts and to connect with beautiful people. I hope to encourage people to open their hearts and allowing themselves to have trust. Wonderful things are waiting for you to discover.
I hope my words may inspire you.
Hey there, my name is Sabrine. I’m a big dreamer (my head’s always in the clouds), and an even bigger food lover. Oh and I have one rule in life: don’t take yourself too seriously and have fun in everything you do (OK, make it two ;)).
Taking care of yourself isn't only about your physical attributes: feed your mind and soul with what you believe is good for you. This is essential to learn about yourself in order to grow and find inner peace. I’ve discovered that the only way to make the best out of life, is through the heart. Connecting, listening and understanding myself is the key to happiness.
Hence I’ve quit my corporate job to be fully in tune with myself and do the one thing that brings me life: dancing. I’ve danced for as long as I can remember, and it always helped me get in touch with my emotions, and express myself fully, freely and shamelessly. Funnily enough, I used to be so shy, dancing helps me to connect with people in many beautiful ways. Every time I pour my heart and feel with my soul, I share a bit more of my story with the world.
Taking care of yourself is also connecting better with others. As the saying goes, “sharing is caring”. I truly believe that the more connected you are to your Self, the better understanding we get, and the better we're able to connect with others.
You were born to live your best lives and accomplish big things. So let’s connect and believe in your Self, get out there and rock it!
