Ocasio-Cortez announces time off for ‘self-care.’ Fearing burnout, missing yoga lessons has her whining publicly

December 18, 2018 | Frieda Powers

Incoming Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has yet to begin her new job in Washington, D.C. but she is already feeling burned out.

The New York Congresswoman-elect told supporters on Monday that her major lifestyle changes have left her feeling worn and she will be taking a “week of self-care” to recuperate.


“I am starting a week of self-care where I am taking the week off and taking care of me. I don’t know how to do that though, so I would appreciate any and all self-care tips,” she said in a video posted to her Instagram account.

Adding a list of “signs of burnout,” the 29-year-old Democratic Socialist pointed out the importance of self-care for activists “because without it we WILL burn out and walk away.”

“So while I’m not going to Cancun or anything, I HAVE decoded to drive to upstate NY and spend a few days in the middle of nowhere,” she noted.

Ocasio-Cortez echoed her comments on Twitter where she remarked again about the importance of self-care, especially for “working people, immigrants, & the poor,” because it is “political.”

@Ocasio2018
I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure to be an eventful term.

For working people, immigrants, & the poor, self-care is political - not because we want it to be, but bc of the inevitable shaming of someone doing a face mask while financially stressed./1

Love @Ocasio2018’s honesty here about taking care of yourself, avoiding burnout, and challenging the misconceptions and double standards inherent in the idea of “working hard.” @AditiJuneja3 @SelfCareSundays

So I’ve decided to take others along with me on IG as I learn what self-care even means and why it’s important.

She lamented the loss of her comfortable lifestyle before she unseated incumbent New York Democrat Joe Crowley and went on to become the youngest woman to be elected to Congress.

“Before the campaign, I used to practice yoga 3-4x/week, eat nutritiously, read and write for leisure,” she wrote on Instagram. “As soon as everything kicked up, that all went out the window. I went from doing yoga and making wild rice and salmon dinners to eating fast food for dinner and falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.”

“I keep things raw and honest on here since I believe public servants do a disservice to our communities by pretending to be perfect,” she added. “It makes things harder for others who aspire to run someday if they think they have to be superhuman before they even try.”

Fans of the New York congresswoman-elect praised her remarks on Twitter.



LOL, this chick is not going to be able to take it.

She hasn't even started the job yet, and is already burned out. New Yorkers voted in a real piece of work, or I guess I should just say snowflake. :rolls

I love how obsessed the right has become with her. She hasn’t even been sworn in yet and people are debating whether she should take a vacation. And yet the president spends more time watching television than actually working and you guys have no problem with it.

I would suggest a trip to Cuba to see her wishes realized and change her ways, but she'd probably consider it a utopia and reinforce her ideology...:crazy :(

I remember when conservatives used to bitch about Obama going on vacation. I would remind that if he is out playing golf then he isn't signing any legislation they find harmful into law.

Yes she will and thanks to everyone harping on every idiotic comment she makes or everything she does she is getting lots of free publicity. Which will reach out to the moocher and thief class of society who loves the idea of free **** at the expense of others. Just look at the posts by liberals. They don't care what idiotic thing she says or does.To them its just a smear against her and nothing more. Just like the **** said against Trump to you is a smear attack against Trump.
