Women and Self Care – Don’t Feel Guilty About Some “Me Time”

Whether you’re a mom, grandma, aunt or none of the above you’re most likely one busy lady. It’s a fact women are multi-taskers and tend to take on a lot. So that’s why today, I want to talk about women and self care. It’s simple we don’t do enough of it and when we do often times we feel guilty for taking that “me time”. Don’t feel guilty not only do you need some time to take care of you, it not only helps you but everyone around you. By taking care of yourself you are recharged and more emotionally and physically capable of taking care of others.

Women and self care – it’s important to treat yourself! I’m offering a few tips where you can easily have some “me time” that will leave you feeling revitalized. One of these tips includes the AVEENO® Active Naturals products below.

Women and Self Care – Mini Spa time

While it’s not always possible to take a vacation for that “me time” (wouldn’t that be nice) there are ways to recharge and/or relax at home and with little to no cost. One of my favourite ways is it have a mini spa day at home. I love to be able to diffuse some lavender essential oil, take a hot bubble bath and just lie back and relax for a bit. I like to use the AVEENO® Active Naturals products such as  the Body Yogurt. This line is formulated with Active Naturals Oatmeal and enriched with the nutrients found in Greek yogurt, this unique formula revitalizes and instantly saturates dry skin while leaving it feeling moisturized.

Not only is the body wash a treat for my skin, it’s a treat for my senses too as it smells divine, almost good enough to eat. The body wash has creamy gel texture that absorbs into your skin without leaving any residue behind that I noticed. After your shower or bath treat your skin and senses to a whole other level by following it with the  AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt. Like the body wash there are two natural scents the apricot and honey and the vanilla oats. Both smell divine and instantly seem to relax me. The Body Yogurt quenches your skin’s thirst, it absorbs quickly without feeling greasy. Hours later my skin was still feeling so soft.

When you feel good you are both mentally and physically better prepared for almost anything. Let me tell you I feel so much better after my mini spa day and I love it when my skin feels soft and healthy.  The daily moisturizing body yogurt is not quite as thick as well for example Greek yogurt and it’s much lighter as you can see below. I love how it absorbs so quickly and is not greasy. It really is a treat.

Another thing I love to do for my mini spa day is to do a facial. It’s easier than you think as part of the treat of it is just taking time to yourself. Use gentle, natural products and ones that make you feel good.

Women and Self Care – Get Outside & Relax

Another one of my favourite things to do for self care is to go outside to either relax or go for a walk which I find relaxing and has the added benefit of being exercise too. If it’s a nice day I will sit outside on the lounger with my favourite book a coffee or a cold drink. I’m lucky that we have beautiful trees all around us and with spring and summer my flowers are blooming so I can stop and well smell the roses like my roses below.

I also get to enjoy our friend’s and neighbours pond which is quite pretty and they have big goldfish in this pond too. Both my daughter and I love to go and sit by their pond to watch the fishes. Fortunately we have an open invitation to do so. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pond I’m sure there’s something outside you’d enjoy. Whether it’s setting on your balcony with your music or a good book, drinking that coffee or tea uninterrupted, there’s always moments to capture for some “me time”.

Here’s the fishes in the pond 🙂

Women and Self Care – Make a Work Moment Some Me Time

While I admit this one might be harder to do there may still be an opportunity. For myself when I have a deadline for an article, I put an uplifting essential oil in the diffuser and my favourite music and it makes work more of a me moment. One of the other things I do if I have to take photos, I try to go outside and enjoy the day. You may have noticed a theme to the photos in this article, I went next door to our neighbours pond and not only did I get my photos done but I got some “me time” by the pond too.

You can even glimpse the fishes in the background below.

Women and Self Care – Close the Door

If you can’t seem to make anything work, just go into a room that you might find relaxing and just close the door. I used to call this mommy’s time out but it was a time out I enjoyed. Even 15 minutes to myself can do wonders to recharge your body and mind. If you have little ones at home I know this could be harder but as they say snag those moments when they’re napping. You can try to arrange with your partner/friend/family member to just give you even 15-30 minutes. You’d be amazed how even a short amount of time can do wonders.
