Self-care may seem like a millennial buzzword that has come up a lot lately but personally, I think it’s important.
I took the idea of self-care Sundays from Estée Lalonde’s book Bloom and created my own version. Essentially, it’s taking some time weekly to perform a routine you personally find relaxing. I like Sundays because it gets you into the right state of mind before starting a new week.
Here is what my Self-care Sunday looks like:
- Take a Bath
- Use a facial mask
- Do my nails
- Read a book/watch TV or write in my journal
You can literally do anything you want as your set of tasks as long as it’s relaxing whether it’s make a cup of tea, watch the sunset, whatever. I like my routine because I have so many beauty products, it is fun to have a night to dedicate to actually using them. These are things I often don’t think I have time to do but there’s always time if you allow it to happen. Also, Nash knows to let me have this time to myself!
Do you have a self-care day? What do you do?
