My Self Care Kit // Why it's important to have one
Self care is so important to me. I always try to take time out to take care of myself. What is a self care kit? Think of a self care kit as a box of items that make you feel good. Just because you take a personal day to sleep or soak in the bath all day isn't necessarily practicing self care. It could be taking yourself out on a date or taking time to enjoy your favorite activity. I think everyone should have a self care kit. If you whisper to yourself "I don't have time for this" then you need a self care kit.
It's important to have a self care kit because it's so important to put yourself first sometimes. I can't preach this enough, "self love is the best love" and how can someone love you if you don't love yourself.
Taking care of your body is so important! Add some of your favorite bath and skin care products in your kit. I love a good face mask and body scrub. I also love looking forward to coming home to change my clothes in to comfy clothes.
I love drinking a cup of tea or glass of wine at the end of a stressful day. Think to keep things in your kit that makes you happy. Like a good book, pictures, or quotes.
Now this is very important! It's important to do the best you can to clear your mind at the end of the day. It helps you sleep better and it gives you a fresh start for the next day. Listening to podcasts or audio books are a great way to unwind. What helps me clear my mind is actually creating blog posts and thinking of new ideas! My job can be very stressful and sometimes I think about it throughout the evening, so when I put the time and energy into my blog, it actually helps me unwind.
