Self care is so important. When taking time for yourself, it allows you to enjoy life, the little things and the company of others so much more. Being kind to yourself is just as important as taking care of everyone else.
Feel rejuvenated and enjoy a week of new routines to self care with small changes that make a huge difference:
Monday: Journal & Relax
Reflect on the previous week and write out 10 things you are grateful for. List out all of the things that you love about yourself.
Tuesday: Digital Detox
Try to limit your screen time. Try to stay away from social media ( if possible and does not affect your primary living). Just enjoy the silence.
Wednesday: Connect with Nature
Take a long walk around the neighbourhood. Breath in the fresh air and stop to enjoy each sound. Having a unique interaction with a natural environment can help place things in perspective or guide through problems more effectively. Plus, you need a break. 30 mins on a lunch break makes all the difference.
Thursday: Food for the Soul
Make a healthy dinner for yourself. Something you love. Be mindful when preparing and add a glass of wine as a treat.
Friday: Solo Date
Have some alone time and go on a date with yourself or stay in with a good book and the Natural Lavender Candle to reduce anxiety and help increase relaxation. Relax and reflect on the good things in your life.
Saturday: Spring Cleaning
You deserve a fresh space without clutter. Tackle you space and clean out all the things that no longer serve your wellbeing or bring you joy. Then gently spray the Natural Lavender Stress and Sleep Spray to give the space a cool and calm atmosphere.
Sunday: Shower/Bath Meditations
We spend an incredible amount of time moving from one problem to the next without releasing the tension we've built up. A quick way to do this during our normal routine is Shower Meditations.
Try this during your next shower and see if this small step helps:
1. Visualize washing away your stress and anxiety
2. Concentrate on the feel of the water on your skin
3. Envision the power of the water washing away the negativity
4. Embrace any sadness, regret, anger and envision it being washed away
5. Watch it go down the drain
6. Breathe and reflect if you feel any lighter and thinking more clearly.
Take a relaxing shower or bubble bath with the Natural Shea Butter & Almond Oil bubble bath with a glass of rosé. Finish it off by doing your nails and relaxing in bed.
Relaxation techniques and practices can be an essential part of wellbeing to help cope with everyday stresses. The long term effects can help reduce the risk of various health problems, such as mild to moderate pain or even heart disease.
