Finding time for a self-care routine may have been tricky enough before Covid-19 but now with the kids at home or little time outside, we are all feeling a bit tense and in serious need for it!
So Rockstar, today I am sharing with you my quarantine confessions on a few of the self-care routines I use to cope in stressful moments.
Here are my 5 steps to adding self-care!
1. Create a morning AND night beauty ritual
OK hear me out, I know it may not seem practical to have a ritual especially if you are not going anywhere but it is essential for your mental health. Investopedia.com states that having a structure in place can help with efficiency and provide clear focus of your attention and time. I can definitely attest to that because establishing beauty rituals in the morning and night really help me to focus on the energy for that day and moment.
2. Support a small / natural clean business for beauty care essentials
3. Make some tea to create a relaxing mood
I am only slightly biased (ok maybe I am MAJORLY BIASED) when it comes to tea but to throw a spotlight on matcha tea, well please excuse me as I make the bias clear! Not only is drinking matcha tea a great way to start your morning but Healthline confirms there are an additional 7 beneficial reasons to enjoy this drink:
4. Play intentional music with a LoFi playlist
Spotify continues to be my hero saving the day especially on those mornings when I want to start with some calm cool jazz.
5. Wear something fabulous then add accessories
I mean, if ambiance is everything then I really don't have to convince you that wearing a kimono and even adding accessories seals the self-care deal. Can you just picture it? A flowy beautiful kimono embellished with tassels in a dope velvet floral design... hmmm tassels. That will definitely have you feeling all those free-flowing feels.
FUN FACT‼️ Curating a minimally glam self-care experience can help with burnout, frustration and keeping a positive mental health.
Because you can build on simple, well-crafted routines for your morning or night, adding bomb accessories just connects you to the self-care experience! A minimal stud or dainty neck piece are usually what I go for and no lie, it always seems to do the trick!
