So we all need a little me time sometimes, and a self-care day is a perfect solution, even if we have to have a self-care day to get it, but Savannah Cristina’s day didn’t go how she expected!
Living in Florida and taking a sick day, this singer and songwriter was really going through quite a bit in life, so she put her health, mental health, first…
She headed out to the beach and took her equipment with her, she performed the song next to breaking waves, about the importance of self-care!
“I felt like I was neglecting myself. I felt like as a woman, as a person, I was neglecting my feelings [and] my responsibilities that I had to myself.”
“I was worried about my responsibilities as a lover, as a friend, as a daughter, as a sister, as an older sister, as a worker, as a student ‘cause I’m in college as well”
She also said:
“…But I was neglecting my responsibilities as an individual.”
The twitter video got nearly 2 million views, and it really showed she had made the right decision, she then said:
“Music is my life. Music is my priority. I don’t care what else is on hold; I have to do what I have to do and that’s exactly what I did and it actually ended up getting more traction than my last video, which also went viral and I was like ‘wow.’ I made a sacrifice and the timing was perfect and now here I am”
I called out of work and wrote a song at the beach instead….

Huge amounts of social media users were effected by her music, and really resonated this in their comments, they really appreciated it!
One person said:
“Where is the Spotify link because you sound like my new obsession !!?”
“Girl I needed this ??I love you and your voice ??thank you for calling out of work to make this magic”
Yet another said:
“This couldn’t have came at a better time. I NEEDED this. This give my soul peace & tranquility. And my mind balance. When you’re productive on your days off. Thank you queen for taking a day off from work to bless our eardrums with your sweet sound of bliss. ? ? ?”
It was completely clear that the song “self-care” was spreading further and affecting more that she would ever have imagined, but that was the real point of it…
“The message I wanted to get across in my video and the rest of my music is just showing people that you can just find a place to be at peace and create”
“It doesn’t matter where you are in life and the video is metaphorical. So, it doesn’t matter where you are, you can still sit down and process your feelings [letting] them out in a productive way.”
It wasn’t long of course that the viral video circulated back to the boss and she was called into the office to have a chat with her supervisor, about the video!
However, she said that management was not upset at all, but she felt like it was time to take an important step to go after her dreams, we agree great timing!
“It’s been a long time coming with that job and they know what I do”
“They were, I felt, trying to stifle my creativity, or be too involved in my personal life like ‘You don’t know when I shot that. You don’t know anything. So you’re way too in my grill,’ which is only more confirmation to not work here anymore.”
“So you can imagine, after that conversation, they were waiting for me to have like our main manager come in, but I just never went back, so they won’t be seeing me.”
With plenty of free time to herself Cristina plans to release even more music, we can’t wait!
“I just want people to follow me, follow my music and follow my journey”
Well we got to say, we love it, and we hope that everyone does follow her and she is a great success, best of luck to her!
