Lack of self care can have a negative impact on one’s own self worth as well as confidence. For both men and women, self care is essential to wellbeing and happiness. Taking the time to properly care and invest in ourselves works wonders, and will have a hugely positive impact on mental health and lifestyle.
Studies show that 72% of millennial women said that they would make self care and mental health a priority in 2019. This means many know about the benefits of self care, but many are actually not putting a great self care routine into practice to boost confidence and wellbeing. Read on to discover all you need to know about self care, and how you can create the ultimate self care routine for yourself…
Why Self Care Matters
When we take the time to look after ourselves we feel good, not just because we feel better about how we look, but also because other people including friends and partners appreciate us more, making us feel a million dollars.
Self care is directly linked with mental health, and a lack of this can have a detrimental impact on your mental wellbeing, impacting on things like self-esteem and confidence. This in turn will also have a negative impact on other life elements, such as work, friendships and relationships.
What it comes down to is this: if you don’t love yourself, you feel as if you can’t be loved by others too. Investing in a little self love goes a long way and can completely transform how you feel in relation to life.
If you have previously engaged with self care, such as having your hair cut and coloured, going for a wax or having your nails or a facial done, you will understand how good these simple things make you feel and the impact on people around us. A good self care routine doesn’t have to take up a lot of time or cost the earth either, just a few small changes will make all the difference…
Developing a Self Care Routine
It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut with yourself. Once you’ve got into the habit of avoiding self care, it’s easy to carry on this way, but it’s important to make a change for yourself and commit to better mental health.
Just a few treatments a month is a great way to show yourself that you’re worth the investment. Ease yourself in and see how much better you feel after doing just a couple of things – start with a wax and a manicure and pedicure to treat yourself.
Allow yourself a few little luxuries, choosing premium treatments over cheaper alternatives. For waxing, choose organic wax to ensure your skin is properly cared for through the treatment. When it comes to a manicure, go for a gel polish that will last for several weeks, rather than a cheaper simple polish and file.
