Having a hard time making self-care happen? Been there, too! Click to read my simple tip to making self-care (actually) happen today!

You don’t have to scroll social media or watch YouTube for very long to see someone talking about self-care. You’ll hear all kinds of ideas on how to care for yourself that range from exercising more to taking full spa days to simply reading more. The self-care list goes on and on. If you’re anything like me, you may find that the ideas given are things that would take a lot of planning to actually execute. Sometimes, it’s pretty dang difficult to pack up and spend an entire day at the spa. Actually, it’s nearly impossible since having my son! My tip for you today is for the times that you really need to get away for a spa day or the days when you want a fancy schmancy coffee, but you don’t have the time (or maybe the money) to do those things.

 

Make your normal into something luxurious. 

 

I discovered this idea of making normal things more luxurious when I was pregnant. I love to take baths, but I was always a bit underwhelmed when taking baths in our home because the tub felt small, my neck ended up hurting by the end of it, and the water seemed to slowly drain out without me realizing it. I did some researching online, and I quickly realized that there is a very simple solution to all of these problems! I ended up investing a small amount of money into a neck pillow, a new drain stopper, and some bath bombs, and voila! Every bath since then has felt like a little slice of heaven! If I really want to take it over the top, I bring an ice cold soda or a pint of ice cream into the bath with me. #causeimthemomandidowhatiwant
