Somethings that is usually put on the back burner for everyone (school counselors included) is self-care. Yet you have to be at your best to give your best. I realized this week that I really needed some time to rejuvenate my body and my soul. Here is my favorite self care routine.
Detox Bath – 1 tub full of hot hot water
1 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon ginger
1 cup epsom salt
4-6 drops of your favorite essential oils (I have two blends from Eden Gardens right now that I truly love! Sunshine Spice and Renew)
Coffee Hair Mask -(I collect used coffee grounds in the fridge for this) Wet Hair and generously apply the coffee grounds. Then I put my hair in a pony and let it sit until I am done in the bath.
Lemon Water – Nice cold glass of lemon water with ice
Healthy Snacks – I usually choose an apple with cheese and white cheddar popcorn.
A Good Book or TV Show – I would love to say that I sit and read books for hours… but the reality is that I don’t have that kinda energy. Instead I set up the laptop and watch one of the many show on my Hulu queue.
What does your self-care Sunday look like?
