With so much going on, we often forget to make time for ourselves when we need it the most. In situations like these, it's essential to find a way to distance yourself from the rush.
Self-care habits can not only ease your mind but also set your mood for the rest of the day.
And it goes without saying that the right inventory will help you get the most out of your daily self-care. Here are a few of my favorite self-care tips for the month of November I have been loving the most lately, and I hope you do too!
1. Make a playlist, and actually listen to it. In fact, make a few! I have one for my workouts, one for when I'm feeling creative, and one for when I'm feeling blah to help pick me up. My daughters contribute to the playlist sometimes too, which I love, especially my work out one as they are more in tune with the latest songs than I am.
2. Spend 20 minutes writing your affirmations for the week. Choosing one affirmation per week to focus on can really make a difference. I like to write out my affirmations on a blank piece of paper, and then color them as I reflect on the intentions. This ia a game changer, and a moost booster for sure. When you feeling down, you can sometimes hear the whisper (or loud voice) calling you out on remembering your affirmation.
3. Start prepping for bed right after dinner. This time of the evening you probably aren't that tired yet, and you can make sure your bed is ready for when you slip in, and maybe even decorate a little warmth next to your bedside. Fresh flowers, a few chocolates, your favorite moisturizer, a book. Light a candle and pour yourself a cup of calming tea, and drink it. That way you won't have too much tea right before you go to sleep and have to wake up to use the bathroom. Stop drinking tea an hour or more before you actually go to bed, if possible.
I hope you enjoyed these tips and have a peaceful, harmonious November :-)
