For many of us, our lives are a juggling act of work and family responsibilities. Setting aside time for ourselves often falls to the bottom of our to-do lists. But it doesn’t have to.
As we’ve mentioned before, self-care is essential if we want to be able to continue giving our best at work and at home. And there is more to it than just trying to get enough sleep and eating healthy foods.
To get yourself back on track, create a self-care starter pack to ensure small indulgences are at reach for whenever you can create a window of “me time”. Or, create self-care kits for your friends and family as a thoughtful gift.
Here are a few tips on what to include:
Draw a Bath: Having the time to soak in a hot bath can feel like a luxury. Make it feel more special by having a large, plush towel set aside just for you. Drop in an Artistry Studio™ Bath Fizzy and let the coconut oil and shea butter soothe your skin as you float away to a state of total relaxation.
Treat your skin: Taking good care of your skin takes only a few minutes a day, so you’ll want to make time for this important self-care step. As part of your regular skincare routine, smooth on Artistry Hydra-V™ Replenishing Moisture Cream, which has Blue Lotus Flower extract to calm your skin while providing long-lasting hydration. And, keep a few different types of the Artistry Signature Select masks on hand so you can mix-and-mask your way to healthier, more radiant skin.
Tea time: Another treat to include is a favorite mug and some special tea to sip while cozied up with a good book. Pick your favorite herbal mix to include in the box, like the organic BodyKey™ Soothing Tulsi and Chamomile – a calming drink without caffeine or calories.
Whether you have five minutes or an hour to set aside, make sure you have some of these little indulgences on hand to make taking time for yourself as satisfying as it should be.
