Lets be real …
I have never been the person to really focus on my self-care, whether it is taking a second to relax, weekly face masks, diving full force into all my products for my hair and skin and even watching how I fuel and treat my body.
Self-care is something that I think people need to pay attention to, although when it comes to that I definitely don’t practice what I preach. Being at school and having a million and one things to do I certainly didn’t spend enough time on my self. I had about an hour-ish of downtime before I passed out and that consisted of my shower and getting ready for the next day
Other than that, I rarely got my nails done, all the face masks I had didnt get put to use and when I really should have taken a step back and taken time for my self it was not put into action. Which caught up to me quickly and showed everyday at school.
This summer has already been a busy summer, and even though I told my self I was going to focus on my self care I really have not! Working 9-11 hours each day and spending the weekend sleeping is not what I imagined for my selfcare journey!
Within the last two weeks I would say that I’m starting to get in the groove of self-care. To me that is the little things like …
going through my hair care products
getting my nails done
paying attention to my skin
working out consistently
These are the little things that would make a difference in my day and will matter in the long run … oh let me not forget the occasional blow out that I get! But you really have to find what works best for you!
I think that having a routine where you practice self care is great! Although actually achieving it will forever be my stuggle!
How do you y’all practice self care?
