Self Care

The most important relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself. How do you take care of yourself? In this post, I share my favorite self – care activities!

  1. Bath bombs/Epsom salt bath – Water is cleansing and can help you feel more grounded. An Epsom salt bath can also help with soreness. I love using bath bombs or bag of Epsom salts. In addition, choosing scents such as lavender can be very calming.
  2. Face mask – With the changes in temperature and weather, sometimes our skin may need some extra TLC. I have different masks for different purposes such as drawing out impurities or replenishing moisture. All in all, it feels nice to take care of your skin.
  3. Burning incense or using a diffuser with essential oils – I personally feel that scents can affect your mood. Some essential oils I have are specifically mixed for certain moods such as happiness or relaxation. As for incense, I love seeing the smoke rise as the incense burns. I visually meditate and imagine my dreams, intentions, and prayers are floating up to heaven with the smoke.
  4. Journaling – There’s something about writing your thoughts and feelings down. I think it’s important to truly know yourself and self-reflect. Sometimes when you’re having a hard time too, it’s a sense of relief to let it all out and write it down.
  5. Listen to music (& maybe have a dance party while you’re at it) – Even if you’re not dancing, playing your favorite songs or listening to music based on your mood, feels so nice.
  6. Manicure/Pedicure – This is one of my favorite things to do! Whether you paint your nails or not, it’s nice to show your hands and feet a little extra attention. I like switching up my nail colors depending on the season or if I have a special occasion and want to match from head to toe.
  7. Meditate – Sometimes life gets so busy we forget to take time for ourselves. Taking a few minutes of quiet time to focus on you and your breathing is a great way to reset.
  8. Get Moving – Even if it’s a short walk, stretch, or a full workout. What a better way to take care and show yourself love than by moving around!
  9. Reach out to loved ones – When I’m not feeling so great, I reach out to my support system of awesome family and friends to lift me up! I can always count on them for cheering me up or making me laugh when I’m down.
  10. Check in with yourself – How many times a day do you check in and ask how you’re doing? We probably ask so many others how they’re doing, but we never ask ourselves. Sometimes it’s as simple as that.
