By now, you’ve heard that self-care is more than a pamper session on a Sunday. Self-care is about taking care of yourself from the inside out, tending to your own individual needs. Despite this seemingly simple explanation, it can be really easy to complicate it. Keep it simple – looking after you better don’t have to be overwhelming, another thing on your never-ending to-do list.
Maybe you’re ready to make a self-care routine, or maybe you are ready to make a simple attempt. Perhaps you’re already pretty good at practicing self-care, and you’re ready to kick it up a notch. The team at Perpetuity Skin + Spa want to throw out a few ideas of how you can easily integrate any amount of self-care into your life. After all, the better you feel, the better you’ll do, in Perpetuity
REFLECT ON THE BASICS
When it comes to self-care and initiating a change, start with your most basic needs, think about where you are, and build your plan from there. How are you feeling? Physically, emotionally and spiritually, these are all areas to explore. Which of these have been skipped lately? Eating whole foods, spending time alone, being social, etc.? Think about how starting small can make this a much simpler decision for you.
One self-care opportunity at Perpetuity Skin + Spa for physical and mental benefits is our saltwater floats. It’s like an Epsom salt bath on steroids. A thousand pounds of salt in the water creates buoyancy that makes you feel like your floating on air, and doesn’t that sound like a good self-care option?
Another opportunity to help with self-care is framing it alongside wellness. Wellness is about making healthy choices that improve our physical and mental state, and at Perpetuity Skin + Spa, we believe that’s exactly what self-care helps you achieve. Self-care is about taking care of yourself and finding methods to stay balances and healthy, help you stay WELL. Your health is your wealth, as they say. Taking care of yourself from the inside out will help you focus on what you actually need.
DOCUMENT YOUR SELF-CARE
When things get rough, it’s easy to forget that self-care can truly make a difference in our daily lives. We’re going to be stressed out no matter what, right? Maybe not.
A journal is a great tool to visualize the way self-care affects you. This could be as simple as writing down the days you practice self-care vs. the times you don’t and asking yourself how you’re feeling. After doing this, you’ll begin to see that self-care really does make a positive impact on your relationships, work, and overall mood.
At Perpetuity Skin + Spa, we have several journals and other self-care inspiration to inspire your step in this journey.
STOP COMPARING YOURSELF
While we can enjoy hearing about another’s self-care routine, it’s too easy to fall down the rabbit hole when you’re searching for ideas instead of just practicing self-care. It’s the same as trying to beat procrastination by searching for productivity inspiration. At Perpetuity Skin + Spa, we believe it’s more important to take action instead of simply collecting ideas. Come by and see our self-care boutique, filled with ideas to create that momentum to do self-care for YOU, just as you like it.
