I know it’s hard for all of us to take at least 30 minutes a week or even a month for some time to ourselves. We all get caught up in our daily routines like work, family and more that when we do want to do a little “me” time that we would rather not since we become so tired. Hey, I know I feel that way too but I try to put 30 minutes aside once a month to do a little self care for me, something that I enjoy.
Here are some ideas of what I like to do for 30 minutes of self-care:
Social Media Break – First and foremost I try to take 1 day on the weekend away from social media so I can enjoy time with my husband and be present in the moment. Since being on social media is basically my part time hustle I do try to take time off it so I can get a break.
Relax in a Bath – Okay, this is my all time favorite thing to do, ask my husband. I like to read, have a glass of wine and relax for a good hour. I exceed the 30 minute mark on this one because why not?! I usually have my favorite items on hand while relaxing for a bath which includes Dove Restoring Body Wash, which pampers & softens my skin thanks to their new Moisture Renew Blend formula – a blend of moisturizers found in skin’s natural moisture barrier. I have been using Dove Body Wash for over 7 years because it makes my skin feel so soft -even my husband loves it! They have so many great scents and body wash offerings and Dove is the only body wash that doesn’t irritate my skin.
Read – Whether it’s a book, blog post 😉 your daily gossip page or whatever it may be to get your mind off of what is bothering you at the moment, find something to read. I’m a book reader and love to get lost in a good novel. Right now I just started reading Mexican Gothic by Sivlia Moreno-Garcia on my kindle app, stay tuned for a book review about it soon!
Give yourself a mani/pedi – That’s always a fun thing to do and a nice little mani/pedi is great! I currently use gel polishes from Madam Glam. They are my all time favorite gel polishes and I have a discount code of Kristin30 for 30% off their website.
What are some of your favorite self-care time tips? I would love to read them and try them out.
