With February being the month of love it's the perfect time to let the one you love know how appreciated they are. This also goes for yourself, as the saying goes "You can't pour from an empty cup". So while you're thinking of ways to spoil your significant other why not add yourself into the mix and treat you to some self care spoils of your own.
If you don't follow us on Facebook you wouldn't be aware that this month I'm talking all things self-care over there. It's my idea of what a month of love should be about!
I love the saying "You can't pour from an empty cup" as it is so true that taking care of yourself first allows you to better take care of others. I'll be dropping little tips and tricks to help you incorporate more self-care easily into your everyday, as well as my favourite quotes and links to some pretty awesome reads.
The most common excuses I hear for someone not taking care of themselves are
"I don't have time for those luxuries" or
"It's just not something I think about"
Fact is, self care can be as simple as taking 2 mins to count your breath. It can be the 90secs it takes to be present while you devour a square of your fave chocolate while hiding from the kids, the 20mins you take every morning to enjoy your coffee or the yoga class you never miss.
Self care is prioritising your wellbeing, whatever that means for you.
Don't deny yourself the little pleasures in life as they are what make it whole
Want to create joy in your February?
🍍 Put a line through that niggling thing that's been on your to-do list for months by either doing it, organising someone else to or realising it's not that important anyway so forget it!
🍍 Take 5mins everyday to go outside, stand barefoot in the grass or sand or dirt and feel your environment. Breathe the fresh air, enjoy the breeze, listen to the birds (or the neighbours kids) and let your mind stop for that time.
🍍 Make yourself dessert
🍍 Listen to your favourite music from way back when. You know that music that reminds you of that time...
🍍 Treat yourself to that thing you've been promising to get/ do/ enjoy... New handbag? Meal at that new place? Yoga class? New dress? Girls night out? Enjoy it
