Wow, life can be pretty hectic! I think it is time to step back and realize how we all just need to take it easy; slow down a little. So with that being said, why not make the best of each day we have? You only live once, so do more for yourself. This sounds a little selfish, but in order to be the best partner, mom, dad, or friend you must take care of yourself first. If you take more time out to do what you love, you will find yourself more motivated in other areas of your life. This is the idea right? Balance?
So what powers you to keep going on life’s adventurous ride? It might be an activity or a little pampering. Daily self-love is a catalyst for productivity. To sum all this banter up, here are a few ways to love yourself up!
Check out what yoga classes are available near you. Maybe your gym offers yoga. If you aren’t a gym kind of person or prefer working out at home, find a class online! It’s a great way to get in a 30 minute gentle stretch, one hour Vinyasa Flow or an ass kicker Ashtanga class. Yoga is a game changer. If you are feeling a little bitchy, stressed or simply need a way to help you relax, just do some yoga. It really re-grounds me and reminds me to BREATHE!!! This is something so primal, yet we all get too stressed and busy to remember to breathe deeply. Wait until you are finished with a class! True bliss!
Foot Cream Massages
Foot massages? Really? Hey this sounds so simple and a little silly, but I’ve been loving my nightly foot cream massages. I go to bed clean with fresh feet and who doesn’t like soft fee? Tea tree, peppermint goat’s milk foot cream is the way to go. I’ve been living beach side lately which means sandals, flip-flops, barefeet and cracked heels. Maybe you are coming out of the winter months and just need to freshen’ up those toes? No one likes cracked heels. It hurts horribly and isn’t so pretty. So, I have started massaging my sexy man’s feet, toddler’s piggies and my feet with this amazing foot cream. I can feel a difference after only one use. It is really amazing. This is a new self ritual you must incorporate into your life. My little family loves it too! Foot massage and reflexology help with depression, sleep problems, blood circulation and the list of the benefits goes on! Sexy feet lead toward a sexy self.
Cucumber Face Mask
Is your face feeling a little dry after the winter months? Do you need a refreshing, moisturizing, hydrating lift to aid those dark circles or a tired complexion?
