A Guide to Self-Care
I’ll be the first to tell you, self-care is needed! There are moments when I feel like I’m being pulled in so many directions, it’s vital that I take a moment to take care of myself. Bust the myth that you have to spend a ton of money to take care of yourself. Actually, nothing on my list is unaffordable. I know you’re thinking, no luxury spa? I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love that, however it’s not required.
Here’s my checklist:
Girl, first things first – throw on some music. My go to is always the throwbacks. I throw on a good old school R&B mix of Stephanie Mills, Shalamar, Rene & Angela,
and Toni Braxton – heaven to my soul.
Oh, and did I mention that I love a good cocktail? A French Side Car with gin, is my fav to be exact.
I’m good for lighting candles. IKEA $2.99 Sinnlig candles are some of my favs. I grab a ton of them and place them all over my home for a calm and peaceful environment.
Digital Detox. My goal is to stay off of social media on the weekend unless I’m working or at an event. Things like this are easier said than done, but I’m working on it.
One Bubble Bath a Week. The ultimate goal. One of the girls that work for me just bought me a giant jar of lemongrass bath salts that I can’t wait to dive into.
Last but certainly not least, embrace gratitude. Sometimes we think we have to make or buy something to indulge in self-care, not true. I’ve learned to do things like speak highly of myself to myself. Keep a journal. Read. Breathe. Just be. I get one life to enjoy being human. I choose now.
