Remember all those random spa product gifts that you received in years past and are just sitting in a closet or drawer? Bubble bath, lotion, nail polish, facial kits, etc. Now is your chance to use them! I know you’ve probably been focusing on getting things done around the house, working remotely, or homeschooling the kids, but you need to make sure you take some time to pamper yourself.
Have you seen the word “self-care” thrown around a lot lately? Often times, it’s been from beauty product companies that are trying to convince you to buy their products, but they’re not wrong! During this time of waiting and having everything taken away from our schedules, what a perfect opportunity to do something for ourselves and steal some moments of relaxation.
My challenge to you is to brainstorm a little before you go out and buy anything. After all, most of us are watching our spending and doing a better job of saving and prioritizing. What can you do to treat yourself with what you have? I did this the other day and was pleasantly surprised at my findings without having to spend a dime! I found some bubble bath, lotion, nail polish, candles, and teeth whitening strips. I decided to just spend some time painting my nails and putting in white strips. It’s not like I was going to go anywhere, but spoiling myself a little was fun. And, I’ve been more diligent in lighting candles around the house or turning on my wax melter because good smells are one thing that relaxes me.
So, what about you? What can you do for some self-care and pampering yourself? See what you can do without spending money, and if needed, go online to Amazon or another beauty product site to spoil yourself a little and have everything delivered to your home. Remember that is’t okay to take some time to relax!
