So it’s been a little while since I last did a self-care post. I thought I’d post a little update of my favourite methods of self-care after a long/stressful day or just because to maintain wellbeing.
Just a little disclaimer: Not all methods of self-care work for everyone. Find what works best for you providing it is positive and not self-destructive.
Y’all know how much I love Lush products and one of my all time favourite things to do is to have a Lush bath. No matter what kind of day it is, but especially if I want to pamper myself, I’ll get one of Lush’s many bath bombs, get some music on and just relax in the gorgeous colours and scents.
I’ve yet to try quite a few Lush’s bath bombs but one of my all time favourites is Twilight. I LOVE me some lavender!
If I choose to have a shower instead of a bath, I love to use the Rub Rub Rub shower scrub to exfoliate and use a body lotion like Dream Cream afterwards. Either way I feel super pampered!
Yes, I do read and write romance as part of my work but like many people that do, it’s stemmed from their love and passion for the genre. As well as for work, I read for my own enjoyment and romance is just a genre I’ll never get sick of.
Nothing like curling up with a good book and being swept up in a good story to help wind down!
I’m a huge music lover. I can’t go a day without listening to some music. When it comes to my tastes, I like pretty much everything from Chopin to Stormzy to everything in between.
A particular favourite is country music. It’s great to kick back to, rock out to or be moved by (let’s face it, “Whiskey Lullaby” can even make the most hardened of men shed a tear!).
There’s always a story in the song and the genre’s got some seriously talented artists! Some of my favourites are Dustin Lynch, Josh Turner and Chris Young.
Side note: I’ve recently come across Luke Combs and his song, “Hurricane” and I honestly can’t stop listening to it, it’s such a good song! If you’re a country fan and haven’t heard it, I highly recommend you do!
I’ve been getting back in to doing more exercise (being a Pilates lover!) after being a little neglectful recently.
As well as Pilates, I love dancing and a channel I’ve recently come across is The Fitness Marshall on YouTube. Basically a guy called Caleb Marshall creates original dance workouts to popular songs with an array of dancers.
Their workouts are intense and their humour and positive nature is so contagious it doesn’t even feel like you’re doing a workout in the traditional sense!
You just keep on dancing and before you know it you’ve been working out for half an hour, so it’s a great way to exercise! If you haven’t seen Caleb’s channel, check it out on YouTube 🙂
What are your favourite ways of self-care? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you! 😀
Hope you enjoyed this post, guys! 🙂
Happy Thursday! 🙂
