Make a bath, toss in some bath salt. Exfoliate with a scrub. Sugar. Cream. Coffee. Your choice!!! Light a candle or two. Make it a mask day. Throw in a hair mask or deep conditioner into the mix. Create and play a self-love playlist right for the moment. Or just close your eyes and meditate . Read a book while you’re at it… Maybe!
If you are like us and glued to the news, you are constantly reminded that we’re still in lockdown and its day 203 (at least at the time of this blog write-up). Despite the unwelcomed challenges the lockdown has brought, there have been the odd plus side such as taking two steps to get to work (hello WFH-culture!), I now see both parents walking their kids to school, better work life balance and for us, being more intentional with looking after ourselves….the buzzword is self care… and you don’t need to be in a 5* Hotel or in Costa del Cornwall to practice self-care.
The time to show yourself some love is now, do it for your body, soul, mind and your mood. Take care of your mental and emotional well being whilst enhancing your outward appearance, that’s a sweet deal if you asked me. Forget everything for a few good moments, create a delicate but beautiful balance internally and externally.
To get rid of stress and create a fun and relaxing environment, take time for yourself. Personal care and self-care goes hand in hand, greater confidence and relaxation fuels a positive sense of self.
