This week I’m focusing more on self care. I know I’ve spoken about it before but I want to share in more detail what I do to help me when my mood is a bit lower and decide to focus on my self care.
I don’t think self care Is really thought about this day and age, I think people just throw on a tv show and chill out which is part of it but to me a way of making yourself is a lot more than just to watch tv for a few hours. To some people that might be enough though so who am I to say! But maybe if we all took a bit longer on ourselves we could feel better for longer.
To start off with I take more care time on my body, I really enjoy a really good bath. I always throw in a bath bomb and lie back, sometimes I enjoy reading a book but other times I just enjoy lying there and doing a 10 min meditation or how ever long I feel. I also throw on a face mask so that my skin can clear up abit, when I get stressed I always break out in so many spots so putting on a facemark really helps. Just spending time on my skin and how my muscles feel really helps towards feeling better in myself.
I also enjoy watching some tv, not a lot but just some while I enjoy a hot cup of chocolate. I love making a big old cup of coco with whip cream and marshmallows. I recently discovered white hot chocolate and its amazing! Its like milky bar but liquidized. Ive recently been watching Game of Thrones and Sex and the city so I love snuggling up with my partner and watching a few episodes.
Ive also started drawing so that something I enjoy doing when I’m lower, even when I’m completely fine I just enjoy sitting there and drawing. I love just randomly drawing things, one of my fave things to draw is mountains and camps. I don’t know why I just really appeals to me drawing those things, its so random. I also like drawing people, I don’t draw them like normal people do but I’ve realised that people get drawing types and I know that this one is mine.
Another part of self care for me is that I like making the area around me more tidy, its silly to think that changing your environment could change your mood so much but it really helps me. I like it when its really tidy I can just see things clearer, Im not looking around for something I want because I can find it easy because I put it away properly. Its just when I have everything organised and even my diary organised I know what I’m doing and when it just makes me so calm!
Do you have anything you do for self care? Are some of these things what you do? Let me know in the comments.
