Ocasio-Cortez Is Taking a Week Off For ‘Self-Care’

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking a break because she feels she is burning out.

Fox News reports:

The Democratic Socialist said Monday that she’s taking time a week off for “self-care” after feeling burned out and lamented that her political activity changed her lifestyle.

“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 an Instagram video.

“Before the campaign, I used to practice yoga 3-4x/week, eat nutritiously, read and write for leisure,” Ocasio-Cortez 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.”

Ocasio-Cortez also informed her followers about her decision on Twitter:

Since winning the Democrat primary, Ocasio-Cortez became a media and Left-wing political star but some of her comments have backfired reflecting badly on her image as a leader.

Ocasio-Cortez also criticized the media without using the term “fake news.”

It looks like the adrenaline is wearing off and Ocasio-Cortez is finding out that being a public figure is hard work and it is draining both physically and emotionally.
