It’s always good to pamper yourself and to relax. I think women (and men) need to make time to do nothing, some me time is always amazing. We as humans are so busy now a days and it’s good to shut the world off for a second and to relax fully. It reduces stress levels and makes you able to handle the world better. Around exam times I always try to get some me time even if it’s just ten minutes. It helps, staying up to six in the morning to finish something isn’t going to work well for your body, mind and overall health. It’s not horrible if you do it once in a while but why would you? Just prepare, so you don’t have too.
Schedule your ‘me time’ in, if you are a very busy person. Try to plan it in at first. I did that for a while after a bit I just felt that I needed the time and I do it whenever. I like to pamper myself on Sundays or before I go out. After exam weeks are an absolute must. After doing all these tests you are stressed out and tired, that calls for a pamper night.
I love to take a long hot shower, we don’t have a bath and to be honest I am not a bath type of person. Wash your hair, shave your legs, scrub your body, wash your face, use your favourite shower gel. Do the things that make you feel clean, fresh and happy. Take time to relax and don’t forget your feet! Feet are often forgotten, such a shame you need them and only got two so thank them with a little foot massage. After the shower/bath dry yourself and again take your time, you are not in a rush now are you? You can now use a body butter or lotion to hydrate your body. This is up to you but it can make you feel very relaxed.
The following thing is important, take your time and make sure you do what makes you relaxed and happy.
I like to lit my candles and put my little lights on. It sets the relaxing mood. I also like to shut my phone off. I don’t want to deal with the drama of other people and I have more than enough other hours in the day to just chat with friends. Besides, my friends know my home phone or where I live. If it really important they can always find me.
Pampering yourself is about you so do the things that make you happy however here are some things that I do when I am pampering myself
Do a face or hair mask
Put foot crème on your feet, put socks on and let it relax your feet
Read a book or magazine
Listen to some music
Watch a good movie/TV show
Write (this helps me to put my feeling out there to collect thoughts.
Take a power nap.
Clean, okay I might be weird but cleaning helps me to relax putting a Spotify playlist on and just cleaning my make-up or closet is so relaxing.
The following thing is important, take your time and make sure you do what makes you relaxed and happy. And be sure to not work. I told you about writing but if you have a blog, make sure you don’t blog in your me time. Because this mixes work (even if you love it and do it for free. It is still work). With relaxing and pleasure and that shouldn’t be happening.
