With Spring flowers certainly come May showers. However, what may seem like a gloomy Sunday afternoon can actually be the perfect opportunity to catch up on some much needed self-care.
Here are a few tips and tricks on how you can enjoy those rainy days at home:
Get up and get going!
There’s just something about a glum, rainy morning that makes you want to stay curled up in your cozy comforter. Believe us, we know how hard it can be to pull yourself out of bed when there’s no sunshine peeking through your curtains. However, instead of sleeping the day away, do your mental health a favor and 1…2…3 jump! out of bed at 9AM latest. Once you have that first sip of coffee, you will thank yourself for making the right wellness-loving decision.
Treat yourself to a good meal.
Don’t treat your self-care day like any regular day; it’s all about showing how much you love and appreciate you! Do just that by making yourself a beautiful breakfast filled with nourishing foods and bright colors. This will give your body the nutrients that it needs to leave you feeling radiant and motivated throughout the day.
Set the rainy-day ambience.
The whole concept of self-care is geared toward contentment, being present and being comfortable in your body, mind and space. It helps to surround yourself with whatever is going to make you feel more relaxed and supported. Cozying up your home with a few candles, some light music and warm lighting is sure to invite a more soothing, ambient energy into the day.
Put your skincare routine into full effect.
Calling all skincare essentials! Treat yourself to an at-home spa day by rounding up your favorite masks, serums, exfoliants, moisturizers etc. and show your skin the love and attention it deserves.
Pro tip: When you apply your skincare, try to stay as present as possible— apply each product with intent and delicate care.
