Selfcare can be really simple?
Some are busy parents, others struggle to find the perfect work-life balance, and sometimes that makes you forget that you need to prioritise yourself and your favourite self-care rituals. Setting aside time to relax during busy days is important, and following a healthy morning routine can be very useful, whether that means pampering yourself with a skincare routine, taking time to breathe and stretch during a yoga class, or simply setting goals to ensure a peaceful day/evening or night.
How do you start your day feeling relaxed?
Reading may not be the one of the first activities that comes to mind when your alarm sounds. However, reading a few pages in the morning is a very calming way to start your routine. Or do you start off with breathing exercises? Starting the day with deep breathing, during meditation or a gentle yoga session, is a great way to embrace joy, motivation and positivity and to help you let go of worries. Focus the mind, put your emotions first and feel free to do some stretching, preparing your body for the rest of the day with a sense of clarity and calmness. Or are you a fan of a hot bath, pampering massages or feeling your best when you have applied all your oils, lotions and moisturisers? Spending time in the morning to pamper yourself in your favourite way can be incredibly beneficial for the body and mind. Of course, a good self-care routine is not complete without a good, healthy breakfast. Too easily we reach for snacks or miss meals because we are at work or the kids need attention; but with a good morning routine, you will never miss a healthy and tasty breakfast again. Breakfast is the fuel to start your day. So: create a morning ritual that suits you, that energises you and enjoy to the fullest!
