HOW TO MAKE YOUR SELF-CARE ROUTINE MORE SUSTAINABLE

 

The best way to show self-care is to take care of your body and mind. When you put yourself and your needs first, you remind yourself that you are worthy of love and attention. It takes a lot of courage to prioritize your needs, but it’s so important to your overall well-being.

Although relaxing is important, I’ve ultimately learned that self-care involves so much more than just bubble baths and nap time although they are a high importance of self-care. Self-care overall is about taking control of your life and  refusing to let toxic people or things take priority over yourself.

I hope that you’ll take a moment to look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself that you’re worthy of self-care. When you put your wants and needs first, you’ll feel so much happier and healthier in the long run.

Whether you’re a lover of baths or naps, self-care is absolutely essential to all of our lifestyles. And we’re true believers that the ways we show love to our mind, body and soul! 


How to make your self-care routine more sustainable

Enjoy a staycation

Make breakfast in bed just because! With staycations. you’ll skip the price tag, the planning and the “I need a vacation to relax from my vacation”! A staycation you can find many new hobbies and self relief.

The best part of a solo staycation: you’re on your own schedule! That means you can do as little (or as much) as you want. 

Kick your bath game up a notch

Yes, baths are a classic self-care choice… but it’s for good reason. Baths reduce inflammation, they kill bacteria, and they just feel really lovely! Create your own bubbly heaven spa with our wellness collection products! From facial steams, bath soaks, face masks or body oil (We love putting a few drops into our bath for some soil moisture… and let the relaxation begin. 

Don’t have a bath? Step up your shower situation instead with our best selling body and face scrub exfoliators, and hair masks & oil treatments. We love the Citrus + lavender body polish exfoliator combined with our ylang ylang + Lavender Body Wash. Light your favorite scented candle for that relaxation. Check out our collection of Organic Soy based candles. Don’t forget to put on a relaxing chill playlist!

Indulge in something sweet

What’s a self-care list without chocolate? There are lots of yummy sugar free chocolates out there, but Lily's chocolate, they have a special place in our hearts. It’s not only absolutely delicious, but it’s also completely sugar free and free of palm oil! YES! Sugar FREE! You wouldn’t even notice ;)

But if chocolate isn’t your thing or you’re more of a salty tooth, grab some crackers and cheese instead. We all need to treat ourselves every once in a while without an ounce of guilt!

Write it out

Do you ever feel like you have so much in your mind and no place to put it?! That’s what journals are for! 

One of our favorite journal prompts is: write down the things that are bringing you down and then write a gratitude list. It’s a simple yet effective way to let go of the bad and make space for the good. 

And you won’t be the only one that benefits! Research shows that when we’re embrace gratitude in our lives, we’re more connected to ourselves and the planet, which ultimately makes us more mindful of our actions.

Meditate more

It’s no secret we’d all benefit from more meditation in our lives. Meditation reduces anxiety, improves sleep quality, and enhances empathy. And studies show that when people are more empathetic, they become more concerned about the environment. 

So pause a little more (even though it’s hard!), you’ll benefit and so will Mother Earth.

Embrace an eco-friendly hobby 

Find a planet-friendly activity that gets you excited! Whether you’re curious to start composting or want to unleash your inner green thumb all it takes is a little time and inspiration to feel super connected to the planet.

Walk and talk

If you’re craving a long chat with mom (or whoever is your long phone call buddy), give your body some love at the same time with a walk! You’ll catch up, move your body, and get all the endorphins.

Go the extra eco-friendly mile and pick up some litter while you’re at it (Make sure you're wearing the correct protective equipment (Gloves). Just remember to be careful while you’re walking and talking, and be aware of your surroundings! Had to say it.  

Make a yummy nutritious meal 

Give yourself love by preparing a yummy healthy nutiours meal full of good-for-you ingredients. Make it colorful!

Take a nap

SO IMPORTANT! Seriously, getting some extra zzzz’s is one of the best ways you can show yourself love. And when you turn off your lights and hit the hay, guess what Good sleep can maximize problem-solving skills and enhance memory. Poor sleep has been shown to impair brain function.

One thing you can do day after day is some self care around your sleep. Sleep is arguably the most important of the three pillars of a healthy life. It impacts on psychological health, metabolism, cardiovascular health and the immune system. Let your mind unwind and relax.
