Being a Sugar Baby requires strong mental capacity. You need to either play a role that is expected from your Sugar Daddy or to be able to separate your emotions to your financial needs.
Therefore, you’ll have to always get in a happy place and be able to strengthen your mental and emotional health.
Mental health issues affect one in four people at any given time in the world and it is not to be taken lightly. Juggling many roles and trying to be so many things to so many people can take a toll. Take a deep breath and a step back.
Truth: Self care is not selfish. Happiness starts with taking care of yourself.
You need to ask yourself these questions:
- How do I feel about myself today?
- Are all my needs addressed?
- What can I do to feel more secure?
- When did I last feel happy?
- Do I need help?
Here are a few ways to put yourself first:
Don’t take your mental health for granted
There are days where your mental health is so bad, you can’t even get out of bed to brush your hair. It is okay. If you feel sick, its better for you to stay in than push yourself. You are allowed to stay home and look after yourself. If your hair is greasy, use a dry shampoo. Washing your face feels pointless? Rub a baby wipe over your face and feel slightly refreshed!
Stop thinking that you’re being selfish
Remember this: You are allowed to practice self care.
Focus on yourself and better yourself. Do it for yourself and at the end of they day, people around you will benefit from it too. They get a better and healthier version of you. No Sugar Daddy wants to be with a Sappy Sally!
‘’I don’t have time for this’’
Stop saying you don’t have time! Self care doesn’t require a lot of time. Even if you have a busy schedule, you can simply take a few minutes off to focus on your breathing. Self-care requires the space and energy to expand yourself, improve yourself, and to reach higher levels of spiritual and psychological well-being. Taking time out to care for yourself will eventually remind you that your needs are important too. Make self-care happen. Schedule me-time in your calendar.
Dealing with negativity
Kick out the negative thoughts! Sometimes, your mind can be incredibly unpleasant and play tricks on you. It leads you into believing that we are not important. Guess what? YOU ARE. Fight these thoughts by saying ‘I AM IMPORTANT’ or ‘I AM WORTHY’. Learn how to honor and validate your emotions. It is easier said to be done but practice makes perfect, right? The more we practice, the more we believe.
Talk to your Sugar Sisters
Don’t keep it to yourself! One of the best things you can do is to tell someone you can trust, someone you feel safe with. Struggling with mental health is not something you should be ashamed of. Letting people know what is happening in your life will bring them to empathize more with your condition. Opening up is the first step towards staying in good mental health.

Take a break from the Sugar Bowl
We all know that Sugaring isn’t easy. It can be emotionally exhausting, especially when your Sugar Daddy relies on you for emotional support. If you feel like Sugaring is too much, take a break and focus on yourself. You need to remove physical and emotional clutter(Sugar Daddy issues) which only serves to detract you from focusing on your personal growth. When you think you are OK, feel free to jump back in the Sugar Bowl and TheSugarBook will welcome you with open arms!
