Self-care has been a hot topic for some time now and I am excited about it.
I am excited that women are beginning to see the benefits of caring for themselves in a way that makes them better women, better mothers, better wives, and better friends. It took some time for me to embrace this concept- and now that I have, my entire life is better because of it.
I engage in self-care in many ways, and caring for my mind, body, and spirit requires attention to my overall health and wellness, starting with my daily routine.
My mornings begin with Centrum® MultiGummies Multi + Beauty vitamins. It’s a multi-benefit multivitamin formulated with 12 nutrients such as Vitamins A, C, and E, to help support good health. It also contains Biotin to help support healthy hair, skin and nails. I can honestly say that after consistently taking these for a year, I have noticed a difference in my hair, skin and nails, and I feel good despite my hectic schedule.
Self-care starts from the inside out but doesn’t end there. So, I have come up with some simple, yet life-changing ways to care for yourself:
Stick to an easy and relaxing daily skin care routine. Take your Multi + Beauty supplements, keep your products and makeup simple, and don’t go to bed without a fresh, clean face.
Book a staycation (husband and baby free) for some alone time (and bring your Centrum Multi+Beauty with you.) Never underestimate the power of some good me-time. If you can’t get away for the weekend, try a day, or even a few hours. Use the alone time to journal, dream, and get some rest.
Take a bath every once in a while (we are so used to hopping in and out of the shower.) Believe it or not, taking a bath can benefit you more thank you think. In addition to ultimate relaxation, I read that baths can help support body benefits such as breathing and reducing inflammation.
Have fun and smile. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Smiling is also said to improve mood, which in turn may help with your stress levels. Smile! Your life will thank you for it.
Get away with your girlfriends (we all know how important that is). Hanging out with friends that make you happy can help increase production of oxytocin. Oxytocin is the “feel good” hormone we all experience when we’re happy. I don’t know about you but being with my girls is my happy place. We talk, laugh, plan, and reminisce, which gives me total life until we meet up again.
Splurge on a cute pair of pajamas. Pajamas are my secret to relaxing. Whenever I am busy but need some down time, I put on a pair of my favorite pajamas which triggers me to take it down. The cuter they are the more likely I am to put them on, so that’s why I say splurge on a nice luxurious pair.
Stock up on as many grab-and-go options as you can. Having as many things on hand that you can grab while on the go takes the stress out of caring for yourself and your family. This is one of the reasons I love my Centrum MultiGummies Multi + Beauty vitamins .During the rush of the day, I don’t always have time to make a shake or eat as many fruits and veggies as I would like. But I can grab my supplements to help fill gaps in my diet. The best part is they taste delicious so I can just grab them and have them on the go!
There are my 7 simple self-care ideas + the multi-vitamin that helps support my good health from the inside out. How do you practice self-care?
