Some Neat ways to Relax and Take 5!

How important is self-care? How often are you treating yourself to some “you” time?

Maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself is important for self-confidence, positive feelings, and a higher self-esteem. It’s impossible to take care of others to the best of our ability if we aren’t taking care of ourselves first. You are your number one priority. Sometimes you might put off self-care because you “don’t have the time” so it’s important to find quick self-care activities. There are so many self-care activities that you can participate in but here are our top 5 self-care activities that you can do in only a few minutes.

  1. Skinperfection mask + hot steamy face-cloth OR mask and cacao: Our Skinperfection Daily Mineral Cleanser & Make-up Remover is perfect for those looking to turn their daily routine into a self-care practice. The skin also receives a healthy dose of vitamins from the oils and minerals from the silica, replenishing the skin and providing future damage protection. Take a damp, warm face-cloth and place it on your face to open up your pores. Then, remove the face-cloth and apply the Skinperfection mask for up to 15 minutes. Re-warm and dampen your face-cloth and gently wipe the mask off. Take it on step further and enjoy our Pure Organic Ceremonial Cacao while you’re waiting for your mask to work its magic.

  2. Coffee scrub on your feet and hands followed by body oil - hand or foot rub. This is great for those that work on their feet or with their hands all day. Nourish your body with our Luxe Crystal Coffee Scrub. pampers, exfoliates and polishes tired and dry skin, while invigorating it with nourishing oils and butters from nature.

  3. Spend some time outside! Take a walk in nature or lay on the grass outside in the sun. Don’t forget to leave your phone at home. Fresh air can give you more energy, better mental focus, improve your blood pressure and heart rate, and even help your digestion.

  4. If you have extra time, run a hot bubble bath using a squirt of soap and essential oils, or a beautiful bath bomb! During your bath, do something relaxing like read a good book or listen to a podcast.

  5. Meditate or practice yoga: Meditation can help you better focus and concentrate, improve self-awareness and self-esteem, lower levels of stress and anxiety, and foster kindness. We love using our Palo Santo Smudge Sticks for all things calming and cleansing. The heartwood of Palo Santo is used in aromatherapy, meditation, energetic purification of space (a.k.a. smudging), preparing tea, and as an effective repellent for mosquitoes. The uplifting and pleasantly aromatic smoke enhances the vibration of any environment, facilitates creativity, and attracts positive energy.  A fantastic incense alternative, and great way to deodorise your home naturally or uplift any stagnant spaces.
