Self care should really be done every day day but in reality, we have to build in time into our schedules to take care of ourselves without feeling guilty and regretting that we didn’t get other tasks done.
I’m trying to get better at taking care of myself so today I’m dedicating some well needed time to pampering myself. Before the pandemic I was able to get my nails done every few weeks and it was a great escape. It’s great to have some time to melt away into a state of relaxation and serenity. The hours of solitude is rejuvenating and I really want to go back to being pampered. Well with our current state of COVID cases still increasing in our area I am not taking any chances. In the current situation and not going out to get a manicure or pedicure it’s has been really tough not having time so self care. With everyone at home its hard to do these self care treatments during the day with a little one in virtual school so I either schedule it for the first part of my morning before he is up or I do it once he is asleep.
Here are some of my favorite self care treatments that I will do at home. I love these because they can easily be done at home and do not take a lot of time. All of the self-care treatments and tips below can be done on a budget, at home and can usually be done in under 30 minutes.
