self-care through the season: ideas for taking time to yourself
when the winter season comes around, it can be hard to keep the chill from getting to you, babe. finding moments for self-care is so important for your mind and body throughout the season. check out these five self-care ideas for making you a priority during the colder months:
1. the unwind
make your shower extra soothing with herbal bath bouquets. just wrap mint, eucalyptus and lemongrass stems with natural twine and hang them from your showerhead. the steam and heat from your hot shower will release their natural scents, which can be calming and comforting on a wintery day.
2. the reflection
the daily practise of bullet journaling can be quite relaxing and the perfect way to reignite your creativity in the winter. this form of journaling helps you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future. it’s as easy as it sounds. simply log a thought, feeling or goal you want to focus on and make bullet point notes to reflect on what you are looking to achieve. to make your journaling even more creative you can add drawings, create mind maps and add inspirational quotes.
3. the flow
we feel you, babe. staying warm and cozy during the chilly season is the ultimate goal. but sometimes bundling up on the couch can make you feel extra tired and stagnant. to maintain warmth and feel revived, try a relaxing yoga session at home (but no one says you have to give up netflix, don’t worry).
4. the quench
hydration and relaxation go hand in hand during the winter (well, all-year round, really). brew yourself one of your favourite teas. while you are waiting for it to steep, give your body some TLC by massaging your bod with your fave hydrating lotion.
5. the sound
“girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song.” dedicating time to listening to an entire album or an amazing playlist is a beautiful form of self-care during the winter season. this moment to yourself will help you feel centered, stay balanced and project good vibes.
