If you’ve looked on social media or opened a magazine recently, you will have encountered the term “self-care”, but you might be wondering what it really means. Responsibilities around family, work, eating well, exercising, domestic and social life leave many of us (especially us ladies) in last place on our “to-do” lists. Self-care is all about bringing your own well-being to the top of your list.
It turns out that the adage of taking care of yourself first, so that you can take care of the rest, remains as true as ever. So how can you incorporate this in your life? Read on, and here’s to more self-care!
The upcoming holidays can be a stressful time of year. Now is a great time to schedule some self-care so you don’t end the season with frayed nerves. Have a look through the hashtag #SelfCareSunday to get some ideas that appeal to you. We love the combination of a clay mask and a bath, to up the indulgence factor. Self-care can also be a daily practice; a walk in the park or even a five-minute skincare routine done morning and night can do wonders for your skin and your well-being.
Above all, incorporating elements of self-care into your days shouldn’t be stressful. Choose a time and kind of activity that most appeals to you, and don’t feel selfish about taking some Me-time.
The best part of the trend of self-care is that the options abound and can be different for each of us. Let us know how you incorporate self-care in your day, and don’t forget to tag us @NENAclaymask so we can all be inspired by your ideas!
