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!
