As I have been learning about how to cope with my anxiety, I have become a big fan of taking self health days. These days consist of allowing myself to take a breather and relax. I choose to work on myself and bettering my health before doing anything else. I have been learning how important it is to make your emotional health and sanity your number one priority and while every day is different I am doing my best to better myself! I thought I’d share what I like to do on these days and I’d love to know in the comments how you like to pamper yourself!
P.S. Everything that is in green is a link to a product that I have mentioned! 🙂
I find baths to be so relaxing. I make the water as hot as I can stand it and stay in until it starts to get cold. I use this lavender bubble bath that I bought at Walmart because it was on sale but I actually have really enjoyed using it. It makes the whole room smell like lavender and makes quite a lot of bubbles! I also will light candles if Rudy is already in his kennel for the night and take that time to wind down from the day.
I have been getting more into skin care recently and have been exploring the world of face masks. I picked up two Studio 35 masks a few months back and while I don’t think they are anything special, they are still fun to use. I have the cucumber peel-off mask and the mint clay mask both of which you can buy at Walgreen’s. When I get out of the bath, I like to wash my face with this cleanser, also from Walgreen’s, which gives a nice minty, tingly feeling to the skin.
Recently, my guilty pleasure has been The Bachelor! I try to watch it live each week but if I miss it, I Hulu it ASAP. I’m team Lauren B. all the way!! Between episodes I also like pretty much any show on TLC and HGTV.
Cuddling with Rudy:
Of course, I cannot forget about spending time with my little puppy! He brings me so much joy and happiness and I love cuddling up with him and getting puppy kisses!
