5 Easy Ways To Pamper Yourself
Valentine's is over and before you know it, the kids will be out for spring break. Did you take any time to pamper yourself this holiday? No? Whether you did or didn't, we believe that self-care should always be on your to-do list. Taking care of yourself makes it so much easier for you to take care of everyone else too!
Here are five easy ways to practice self-care, no matter what day it is.
- Take yourself to out to try something new once a week
Whether this be coffee, dinner or just a stroll around town. Treating yourself and getting away for even just an hour or two can freshen your perspective and brighten your mood.
- Practice mindfulness
Mindfulness is the act of being purposefully present in the moment. This means being aware of what we are doing while we are doing it. Practicing this lifestyle promotes everything from positive emotional states to a boosted immune system. If beginning sounds daunting, try downloading a free app that walks you through the process of being mindful for just a few minutes a day.
- Get a massage
On a budget? No problem! Discount sites like Groupon
offer great deals on these quick escapes.
- Have an at-home spa day -
Wait until the kids are asleep or at school. Grab your favorite book, a glass of wine, a face scrub (or make your own with coconut oil, sugar and lavendar oil!) hair mask and a bath bomb. Proceed to unwind!
- Ditch the workout routine
While we are all for daily exercise, we also believe in having fun while you workout! Not only does constantly engaging in the same routine cause boredom, and can also cause you to plateau. Switch it up with a new dance class, a YouTube yoga video, kickboxing or anything that sounds like something you would truly enjoy! Who says working out can't be fun?!
Now get out there and get relaxing! You deserve it, mama!
