I think it is safe to say a lot of us are experiencing election stress and pandemic stress. I took some time away from the computer this week and it was nice to unplug for a bit. I thought it would be helpful to share some self-care ideas to help you keep calm and any additional stress.
I had an outdoor lunch with my friend Ashley this week and she said she made a dent at the Sephora sale. I did some skincare shopping this week as well. I think when it comes to retail therapy, we are looking for something that will comfort us. This includes beauty treatments, candles, and makeup. This is my favorite candle for hanging at home. The smell is heavenly. These eye patches help with dark circles and puffiness from lack of sleep. I think we are all there this week.
Only do this if you have the budget to do so. Part of my 100-day challenge was to not buy beauty products but I have done so well with French and yoga, I gave in and placed an order.
Enjoy the Fall colors if you have them. Take a walk and get some fresh air and leave your phone at home.
I have a few Spotify lists you can listen to here. I love to cook and listen to music.
The Queens Gambit is 7 episodes that are an hour long each. This will keep you busy!
This is my go-to when it comes to unplugging. I made a Lemon Blueberry Bundt cake this week and it was so big I had to give some to the neighbors.
This always makes me feel 10 pounds lighter. Plus, you can use the extra items you clear out to donate to people in need. This holiday season, there will be more people than ever that need donations.
Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. Make a Facetime date and catch up.
I have been loving the yoga classes on Peloton. The first 30 days are free to try it out.
I use this Peloton app to meditate to help me fall asleep.
I think in moderation, it is okay to stress eat. I know I have had a pit in my stomach all week but I am so hungry all the time.
Do you have a favorite way of self-care?
