First of all... you may be wondering, what exactly is self-care?
Well, self-care encompasses all things that deal with focusing on and promoting ourselves - including maintaining our health and preventing illness. In order to do this, we need to focus on not just our bodies - but also our minds. Self-care can come in many forms, such as beauty routines, getting in some exercise, or participating in a hobby you enjoy. Pretty much - any kind of act that makes you feel cared for and beautiful. Acts we like to do include:
establishing a relaxing skincare routine
setting realistic intentions for our day
forming a makeup look that makes us feel beautiful
piecing together outfits that make us feel confident
taking the time to do things we enjoy, such as taking trips and visiting new places
taking a relaxing bath or lightening an aromatic candle
The opportunities are endless.
Implementing self-care acts into your daily routine - whether they're big or small - is so important for your body and mind. Everyone has their everyday stressors, whether it be from school, work, or relationships - which is why establishing time for yourself each day is super beneficial. Focusing on the present, while being mindful, can allow you to grasp stability in your life - even when things feel very overwhelming. Yes, this is easier said than done - but you can start with implementing small tasks for yourself each day, which can soon become healthy, feel-good habits.
