We've made a commitment to ourselves to prioritize self-care time this year! For us, that means developing a regimen that puts our bodies and minds first. So if you're in need of a little self-care #inspo, keep reading to discover our new & improved wellness routine.
Refill your water bottle every hour, on the hour - Ensure you’re drinking enough water by getting into the habit of refilling your water bottle every hour. Fluids are essential to the proper functioning of your body. You’ll be amazed by how much better you feel after upping your water intake. Aim to drink between 2.5 and 3.5 liters of water per day.
End your showers with an invigorating burst of cold water - After you’ve indulged in a hot winter shower, switch the faucet to cold and let yourself experience the change in temperature. A blast of icy water for 30 seconds or less is all you need to invigorate your body and kick your circulation into high gear. (One study even found that cold water releases endorphins, instantly boosting your mood.)
Give your eyes a break - Cut back on screen time by going for a walk, closing that Netflix tab, and reading a chapter of a new book, or simply practicing the rule of 20 (for every 20 minutes of screen time, take a 20 second break and look at something 20 feet away). And to truly revitalize your eyes, look no further than the unbeatable combo of Radford’s 24K Gold Hydrogel Eye Mask and EyEnvy’s Lash Conditioner.
Pamper yourself - Take your #SundaySelfcare routine to new heights by pampering yourself to close out the week. We’re thinking a long, candlelit bath featuring Natural Loofah Soap, followed by a little self-massage using BARE Body Oil, and perhaps a DIY manicure. Check out our new Golden Glow ultimate selfcare bundle featuring our some of our favourite picks: BARE Body Oil, Citrus Mint Body Polish, Radford Beauty 24K Gold Hydrogel Eye Mask + Face Mask
De-stress with a vibe sesh - Studies have shown that masturbation can help relieve stress and anxiety, so grab your favourite vibe and get down to business. Check out our newest Vibe bundles:
Practice gratitude - Carving out mindful moments can be extremely difficult, but it’s critical to taking care of your mental health. Each morning, as your coffee brews or your tea steeps, think of three things you’re grateful for. Then at the end of the day, right before you go to bed, try to remember one or two things that made you happy that day. Taking these small moments just for yourself has the power to change your entire mindset.
Sweat it out - Exercise is one of the best mental health tools there is. Proven to help alleviate depression and anxiety, consider booking an intro class at your local yoga, barre, or spinning studio. Or if you’re really feeling it, commit to a 30-day challenge. Post-workout, stay fresh with South’s Fresh Wipes 6-Pack.
At the end of the day, the key is to find a self-care regimen that works for you. Develop a routine that centers and grounds you, allowing you to achieve a much-needed moment of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
