Summertime Self-Care Tips

Michelle Lewis – The Blessings Butterfly

 

Do you have a more relaxed work schedule during the summer months? It’s a great time to look at your Self-Care routine and treat yourself to something beautiful.

I was so grateful today for the flexibility to go enjoy some “beauty maintenance” (lash fill & mani-pedi!) before joining my sweetheart’s office dinner party tonight.

Self-care is so much deeper than a spa day; it’s really about taking the time to restore what’s on your inside.

So, what if you can’t take a day off or even a few hours?

Give yourself 5, 10, 15 or even 30 mindful minutes to do one of these:

  • breathe deeply
  • think some pleasant thoughts
  • have a power nap
  • do some stretching/yoga poses
  • take a nature walk
  • write about one thing you’re grateful for
  • drink some water
  • just sit quietly
  • eat something nourishing

Peace and restoration can be had with a quick reset. Set aside those stressful thoughts for a little while to clear your head and give yourself a much-needed break! You’ll come back refreshed and ready to go!
