Need a Bit of Self-Care? Don't Wait! Do It Now!


Good Morning Lovelies, 

Do you have a day of the week where you just spend time looking after yourself? For me, it is normally Sunday. I try to have a tough meal on Saturdays, which leads to my illnesses kicking in and making me feel a little bit rubbish by Sunday morning. So, I like to take the day to stay in and do a bit of self-care. 

For me, this means sticking to my routine, but with added bits of pampering. I like to shave, put on fresh PJs, look after my skin and hair, whilst also letting my body relax a bit from all the medicine I am on. My mum helps me make a veggie filled dinner and I try to be in bed, snuggled up warm by around 8:30pm. A time that may be early for some, but perfect for me. 

I don’t rush around in the morning. I take the day slow. I like to look out the window whilst having breakfast and enjoy seeing the birds. I like to have the radio on. All elements that get me ready to take on what the day brings. 

Sometimes this can be baking. Other times it can be cleaning and sorting. I normally like to do something to occupy my mind and thankfully my amazing mum is always on hand to help if I need her too. I can’t do any of the heavy clearing jobs, so she makes sure to be on standby if I set myself a challenge.

Sunday can be a day of woe for many, as it often symbolises a return to school, work or even home, if you have been away for the weekend. Yet, for me, it is a time to mentally prepare for the new week and what it may bring. Even with the voices in my head being bitches, I try to remain as positive as I can. Not an easy task, but one I work hard to achieve. 

This week, I am going to set you all a little challenge. Find one day. One hour. One minute even and take it for you. Do what you want to do. Whether that be eating a donut, watching an old favourite cartoon or plucking out an annoying hair. Do something that makes you feel good. You all deserve it!
