A good night’s sleep is a self care must. There’s something about having some fresh new sheets that just makes going to bed all the more exciting and bamboo sheets are the bees knees! There are so many benefits including:
- Really soft to the touch, softer than cotton.
- Thermo-regulating so they stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
- Antibacterial, hypoallergenic, antimicrobial and good for people with sensitive skin or dust sensitivity.
Make bath-tub more relaxing by having everything in one place. This photo has a tablet and cellphone in the photo but you shouldn’t be looking at social media while focusing on self care! Instead, use your phone to play some relaxing music or a meditation app.
Add this matcha powder to your self care morning routine! Matcha has naturally occuring caffeine for that added boost of energy in the morning. It’s also a natural fat burner and has a concentration of healthy nutrients. Drinking Matcha in the morning will keep you focused on all the day’s difficult tasks.
If you have a cat, it’s going to love this! One of my favourite self care activities is focusing on my sense of touch, since it’s a sense that often gets neglected. Cozy up on the couch with this heated electric blanket.
Meal prepping is the worst! I’m not a fan of meal prepping but I am a HUGE fan of reaping the rewards of doing it. Having prepped meals saves a bunch of time and headache during the week, you save money and it’s healthier. A meal prep book or recipe list is a great way to take the thinking and planning out of meal prepping – it’s a must!
Who says all the self care has to happen at home? This all in one tea travel mug allows you to take a cup of warmth and comfort with you on the drive to work or on the bus. It makes your morning just a little easier to deal with.
Another one for bath tub, although this one works great as a gift! All of the tasks in my 10 Day Self Care challenge include giving or helping others. This is because when you help others, it releases hormones in your brain that make you feel good. Give the gift of self care and relaxation to someone you love by also reaping the rewards of those feel good hormones.
There’s something about these fairy lights that have the ability to make any room feel calm. I personally have one of these cherry blossom LED trees in my bedroom but adding fairy lights to a plant or book shelf works well too. If you get ready for bed with these lights on, it really helps wind down and get you ready for a good night’s rest.
As you know, taking care of others is a great way to release “feel good” hormones in your own brain. The same thing happens when you take care of a plant or a pet. If you’re like me though and you struggle to keep a cactus alive, these smart herb gardens are a dream! They look nice in your kitchen, they’re easy to use and you get to use fresh healthy herbs in your cooking.
Part of my self care morning routine is to make a filling power smoothie. I use the magic bullet to do this because it has made my morning so much easier and faster! Using a traditional blender is big and bulky to clean but the magic bullet allows you to whip up a smoothie and have everything cleaned in less than 5 minutes! Since I make a smoothie every morning, I’ve actually got the process down to 3 minutes in total for making the smoothie, drinking it and cleaning up.
This Yoga mat is more of a symbol for “do yoga”. An easy yoga routine can be done at home and is a great way to relax the mind and the body – the perfect self care combination!
