5 Ways to Self Care When Things Get Crazy
Every once in a while we are going through life, crossing every T and dotting every I with precision. All is just…so great! Then one day things start falling apart bit by bit, a family member passes away, another gets ill, a friendship implodes, your boss wants it all, your marriage needs repair just as much as your car, your children are making you nuts and just like that you have the perfect storm of crazy.
This may or may not be you, heck it may or may not be me, but one thing I do know is that everyone goes through storms in life. Storms that make it seem impossible to breathe, impossible to exist. Despite the happy face that one might put on, they may be going through all the things and we have no idea.
I have certainly been through a storm or two and I am proof that not only do they pass but we become stronger because of it. The most important thing to do during these crazy times is take care of yourself. Not only is it vital for your sanity but it is vital to keeping your peace as the storm passes. Today I am sharing 5 Ways to Self Care When Things Get Crazy.
Get a manicure/pedicure: Of course we go to the nail salon to make sure our nails are perfectly groomed with a pretty color, but the process can be quite relaxing as well. It forces you to not do anything and just be pampered. That 30 minutes can be transformative for your mental and physical health when going through a tough time. This applies for facials as well.
Read a good book: This is a big one for me. When things start going haywire there is nothing like jumping into a good book as a great distraction. Starting a new book puts you into a new world that may help put things in perspective.
Get a massage: This one is pretty self explanatory, I know that they can be a bit expensive but a huge tip is to go on Groupon, there are plenty of massage places begging for your business–at a discounted rate. Try to schedule them monthly if your budget allows.
