Kim Kardashian needs a break. No, I'm serious, she does. I know she's a "workaholic", what with her walking around and tweeting and whatnot, but the pregnant star legitimately needs to slow. Down. Girl's gonna run herself ragged. Even her "relaxing" activities have evolved into press events in which the whole world is invited to weigh in on.
I mean, tweeting during an acupuncture session? I can't possibly think of a way to make a peaceful activity any less zen. Unless Kim were to blast Insane Clown Posse during the treatment.
Kim uploaded a photo of herself mid-acu-session, full face of makeup, about 18 needles sticking out of her head, along with the caption: "Oh, just relaxing." I'm guessing she was being tongue in cheek here, but as anyone who's ever had acupuncture knows: Having a million needles sticking out of various body parts actually is relaxing. Your energy is getting swirled about (if you believe in that stuff); important points are being triggered; and it's a period to just lay there and reflect. Any time I've ever had acupuncture, I've left feeling renewed and refreshed -- even if for the sheer reason that I got to just "be" for a few minutes.
Kim needs more "being", less "doing". She needs to be the opposite of the Home Depot slogan.
When you're pregnant, you need time for yourself, man. Although the ol' "you think you're tired now, wait 'til you have kids" saying is one of the world's most obnoxious, it's true. Once the baby comes, there's no more time for leisurely acupuncture sessions. (We're pretending Kim's a normal person here.) Kim shouldn't turn everything into fodder for Twitter, and she ought to just lay low for a while. Not just for herself, for the health of her baby.
To be honest, it really doesn't seem like pregnancy has changed Kim all that much. She's still wearing the same clothes, and "working" just as hard as ever. I wonder if things will be different when the baby gets here. I hope so.
Do you wish you took more time for yourself when you were pregnant now that you have kids?
