If I am being super honest, it’s a daily choice for me to wake up and choose self care and a calm state of mind these days! No one is immune to the feelings of fear and trepidation that are happening in the world right now and in no way do I want to be insensitive but I really wanted to share some things with you that are helping me get through! I know I personally just have to stay positive so…
Any self care that can help you relax, distract and ease any kind of worry – even if for just a moment – is important! I am also including information about the corona virus and what I am doing to keep my immune system in top shape! so keep reading!
I can’t be the only girl who is embracing this time to be makeup free and let my skin breathe! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting up in the morning, washing my face and pampering my skin with Be Gentle! After my skin care regime, I go bare face for the remainder of the day and it’s been sooo freeing! For more on the skin care I am presently using, head over to my review! *I also want to note that the eye smooth cream is INCREDIBLE! If you are over 30 and currently looking for an eye cream, I would highly recommend!!!
I won’t lie, my anxiety has been showing in more ways than one starting with my hands. I have been washing so often and been scrubbing them so hard that my hands are in pretty rough shape. The skin is flaking off and I have been reacting to most soap. I have some gloves filled with hand lotion (it’s like a treatment for your hands) coming my way so I am just waiting for them to do their magic! I love that I can let my hands soak for as long as I want (even over night) and start the process of healing my skin. Or at least keeping it in the best shape possible while I do my best to protect myself and others with hand washing.
This is important on a regular day but even more so now! It is vital in these days that you start your day off right with prayer, meditation and a heart of gratitude despite it all. It’s a heavy burden we are all bearing but getting your head and heart right is necessary to get through this!
SUPER FOOD SHAKE
I am terrible at taking my vitamins and right now is not the time to be struggling in this area, lol, so I connected with my health and fitness coach and I ordered a month’s supply of super food shakes that will help boost my immune system AND replace my vitamins. One shake a day and it kills two birds with one stone, getting in my daily vitamins and I don’t have to figure out what to eat for lunch, hehe. *You can connect with my personal coach here and she can hook you up if you are interested!
On that note, a few things I have read about the corona virus that have stuck with me is tylenol is really good to have on hand (advil is not recommended) and VITAMIN C! My husband and I have been stocking up on tea as well (the spicier the better) and gatorade as electrolytes are really beneficial as well.
Hope this blog has helped some, I am using this time to self care in any way I possibly can whether that be mental, physical, emotional, etc. I hope you are too, xoxo.
