Why is it important?
To stay mentally healthy and happy!
You work hard, you have gone through some tough times… Think about it, don’t you deserve a bit of positive energy? Self-care is the key. And we are going to suggest some easy things you can start with!
Call a friend (or a family member)
You probably were too busy to call a bunch of people. Social contacts have a tendency to fade with time. Think about the closest people you are not ready to lose and talk to them. Try to avoid speaking about work or kids, better talk about some warm memories and friendship. Maybe you can meet soon and have a face-to-face conversation?
Have a quiet coffee/tea break
Make a cup of tea or coffee but this time make it special. Add some berries or ginger to your tea or experiment with marshmallows, chocolate and cinnamon to create your own type of coffee. Enjoy it.
How about some delicious dessert for your cup of drink?
If you care about your sugar intake, here is a nice shop Natural Sweeteners, where you can get all the sugar substitutes you need (also, check out their recipes)!
Take a bath
Find some time even if most of the time you are busy with kids or work. Light some candles, add some salts or bubbles, turn on your favourite music. If you wish you can bring a book. Relax. It’s your time! After the bath, make sure to take care of your skin and hair with a proper lotion.
Buy something special
You like unusual design things? And you probably stop yourself everytime, saying it is not practical and just a waste of money. But pampering means letting yourself buy or do something just for pleasure once in a while. For example, if you love to read and are in search of something really special and unique, here is the shop: Craighill
Buy something for another
Pampering yourself feels better if you do something good for your close people. Go shopping (if COVID restrictions allow that) to the nearest mall or supermarket. Or even better: browse the Internet!
Here are some ideas to pamper your loved ones:
