SELF- CARE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

Saturday, October 13, 2018


Self-care can easily make it to the bottom of one's to-do list. Sometimes we are too prideful about our jam-packed schedules to admit we make time for ourselves. And other times we seriously just don't have time. But self- care is so very important and should be done!

That's why I think busy days call for long showers.

After a busy day, a long shower is the easiest way to show yourself that you care. It's simple and effective. If you're going to take a shower why not spend some time in there! It seems like sometimes the only place you can slow down is the shower, you know, since it's just you and your thoughts.

We aren't taking advantage of our showers.
I know at times when I take showers I just go through the motions. I wash my hair, wash my body, and shave like I am a robot. This makes taking showers sound like a chore. Surely, we want to enjoy our showers. So stop going through the motions and go into the shower thinking that this is your time! Your uninterrupted time to focus and take care of yourself!

Stop rushing through your shower.
People who take care of themselves take long showers. This is the conclusion I've come too. No one but your siblings will tell you to hurry up in the shower. Why not take advantage of your "you" time and enjoy the shower instead of rushing so you can get dinner or move onto the next task.

A few ideas for your next shower:
-Turn on some sing along songs
-Don't rush
-Be mindful of yourself
-Remember to put on lotion

This is the simplest way to take caee of yourself sooooo Shower yourself with love AND remember shower time is you time. Don't waste it.

    1. I haven't yhiugth about it like that either until I had an extremely busy day and found myself relaxed in there. Also thought about how people under the weather or just really depressed find it difficult to do simple tasks like that. The ones we often take for granted.

  8. Putting on some music or a podcast is my fav way to cleanse & relax in the shower! I definitely need to remember to put on lotion; I always forget, & it was one of my New Year's goals this year haha xx

    1. I think we have this problem too? But I've never ran out of water in one shower alone! We have three in my house hold and if we take back to back showers the water runs colder by the third. (Lol really getting in depth about the shower.) Thank you for your comment! <3
