Self Care Sunday

𝐒𝐄𝐋𝐅 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐄 π’π”ππƒπ€π˜
I recently came across the term β€œself care Sunday” and immediately felt a burst of joy and started scanning through the list of possibilities I could share. Here are self-care practices that create balance, improve physical and mental health and help me live an intentional life.

  • Make a list of things you need to do in the week ahead.
  • Mindfully sip a cup of tea. I prefer sencha or high mountain oolong because of their health benefits and for their delicate fragrances. They both make mindful tea drinking really easy. You can get everything you need at O’ways Teacafe.
  • Go for a walk and practice mindful walking.
  • Meditate. Anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes, whatever you can manage.
  • Listen to some feel-good music. I recommend Thomas Newman for something goosebump generating, or if you want to sing along try Cher or Celine Dion.
  • Use a foot massager. I have my one going most days. Takealot has a good variety. This is the one I use - Shiatsu Air Pro Foot Massageuse.
  • Have a bath with all the stuff – candles, essential oils, relaxing music, tea, blueberries.
  • Get a professional massage.
  • Go on a hike.
  • Create your own spa retreat (shower with essential oils, face mask, exfoliate, do your nails, relax with green tea, have a nap).
  • Yoga or just stretch it out. My yoga mat is my happy place. Often there is less yoga happening and more pampering/self-love, I like to think of it as pre-yoga practice. Around my mat I have my dry body brush, gua sha, essential oil (usually lavender), body moisturiser and facial serum.

If you have any suggestions for self-love Sunday, please share it in a comment below. I hope this created some inspiration for you to spend time taking care of yourself so you can face the week ahead with passion, purpose and love.
