Self care and why we believe it’s important
Why Self Care?
One of the most common statements we hear in the Spa, is how busy life is and how our clients wish they could just slow down more often. It’s honestly so common!!!
And we can completely relate. We are just like you! We have work, family commitments, events, functions, appointments, exercise to fit in and it can make life really overwhelming sometimes. Then if you’re a parent, you’ve also got your little humans thrown into the mix as well. And let’s be honest, there’s only so much each of us can give. At some point, we have to slow it down and recuperate not just our bodies, but our minds as well.
Self care allows you to fill your own cup up. It’s so important to slow down, relax and unwind at least once a week (once a day is even better!!). It allows your mind to clear, it enables you to feel more energised and be more focused. By taking care of yourself first, you can be a better person for those around you.
So how can you practice self care I hear you say?
Well there’s many options, our favourites are definitely regular facials or massages, but it can also be some simple little things like sitting in nature while sipping on a cup of tea all on your own. It could be running yourself a bubble bath, popping on your favourite face mask and soaking in your tub for an hour. It could be reading some of your favourite book. There are SO many ways in which you can incorporate self care.
So I would love to ask you, when was the last time you intentionally set aside time from your week to give yourself some self care? If it’s been far too long, let’s change that for you! We’re always here to help and I’d love to hear from you in the comments below, what self love practice you are going to work towards this week?
