I have to admit I do not look forward to Mondays. To get me ready for Monday, Sunday evening is for self-care. As women, we take care of everybody else and we are often last or heck not even on the list. After church, brunch, and whatever else you do on Sunday, carve out time to do a few things just for you that support your body, feed your mind, and calm your spirit. Today I have 5 goodies that promote self care and eliminate Monday blues.
A good face cleanser is not only refreshing, but a clean face is the basis for all the other products we use on our face. CerVe face cleanser is right out of the drug store so it is wallet friendly. It foams up and is a good all purpose cleanser. Nothing feels better than being fresh faced.
I am so excited to share these handmade crochet pads from blogger babe Beckey’s Etsy shop. Made of soft cotton, these pair so well with CerVE or your favorite face cleanser to clean and gently exfoliate. So easy to wash and reuse making them an environmentally friendly, alternative to regular face pads.
Now you’re ready to relax. A calming tea is a choice to for a quiet Sunday evening. Chamomile is known to help ease the mind and the lavender scent eases anxiety. Make this moment special by using your prettiest teacup.
To keep the mood going, light this eucalyptus and spearmint candle. Eucalyptus is known to ease exhaustion and reduce mental sluggishness, while spearmint produces a calm and relaxed state. You are getting in the zone.
All relaxed and chill, use a journal to list out the things you are grateful for in your life. A spirit of gratefulness boosts your immune system and reduces stress, contributing to your overall health. This will surely make you smile.
Now you are all relaxed for a good night’s sleep to awake to a Marvelous Monday. This really helps me get my week off to a good start.
Do you have any Sunday self-care tips?
