5 Self-Care Steps to End Your Work Week
This self care to-do list is perfect for any night of the week, but feels especially satisfying on a Friday night after a long week of work. Enjoy!
Kick off the heels, ditch the work clothes, the jewelry, the boob jail (a.k.a., bra). Admire yourself in the mirror in all your stripped-down beauty and pay yourself 3 genuine compliments. Say them out loud, like you would to your best friend.
Turn on a hot shower and let the steam fill your bathroom. Use your yummiest smelling soap or maybe that face mask sample you’ve been meaning to try. Pamper yourself with a long shower and let the stresses of the day swirl down the drain.
Wrap yourself in your comfiest robe or pjs then make yourself a cup of tea, preferably Evita's Twilight Blend. If you have a piece of chocolate or a few cookies, grab those too. Sit at your kitchen table in silence and enjoy your treats. Slowly savor them, being mindful of the flavors and the fragrance.
Grab your phone and your most luxurious lotion, then jump into bed. Look up Five Variants of "Dives and Lazarus" on YouTube. While that plays, massage each of your feet for 6 minutes, thanking them for being perfect just the way they are.
Dim the lights, fluff up your pillows and get under the covers. Look up 15 Minute Loving-Kindness Meditation Yoga with Lesley Fightmaster on YouTube and let her guide you in this beautiful meditation. After the meditation, turn your phone to silent and don't set an alarm. Allow yourself to sleep for as long as your body needs. <3
Hugs and bućas!
