Abstract

A global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus created changes in how we socialise, work and consume. This auto-ethnographic research explores self-care practices and identifies self-love as a coping strategy to survive the pandemic. Prioritising one’s personal needs through hedonic and compensatory consumption counteracts the adversities of social lockdowns.
