Selfcare has become a very popular and with good reason. So I wrote 6 ways to practice selfcare on Sundays as a way to help us all care for ourselves.
In a world where people are use to taking care of others we often forget about ourselves, and the fact that we also need care.
We neglect our own needs and think of everyone around and how we can help them.
But it is very important to take some time for yourself and reset in order to be better for the people around you.
This is where Selfcare Sundays come in, take one day to do something for yourself that helps to calm the mind and the body.
There are many ways to do this. Here are some ways to practice selfcare.

Take A Bath
This is a great way to unwind from a difficult day or week. Fill the tub with water, maybe some Epsom salt (if you have sore muscles). Any epsom salt is good for this but I really like the epsom salt with lavender, it helps yo to relax.
Add the essential oil of your choice. Lavender, eucalyptus, rose, chamomile, or clary sage are all really good because these essential oils promote relaxation.
Which helps you to feel better. You can take it one step further and add candles to your experience.
A nice scented candle always helps me to relax.
Two of my favorite candles are mahogany teakwood high intensity and glade’s clean linen.
When everything is set up, sit in the tub and soak. This would be a good time to listen to an e-book, read a book or just relax.

At Home Facial
This is a great way to pamper your self for a couple of hours, while taking care of your skin. Read here to learn how to do your own facial at home.
I love taking a few hours to pamper myself, while doing nothing but thinking about the next steps in my facial.
The good thing about doing an at home facial is the some of the steps take longer than others, this is good for sitting back and relaxing.
This is something that can be used as a Sunday ritual before going back to work on Monday.
This can also be turned into an at home spa day, you can take care of your hair as well as your skin.
Or if your feeling like splurging a little you can go to the spa and have a spa day, a day of relaxation and rest.

Meditating is a great way to take care of your mental health.
A lot of times we forget to take care of our mental health, and we end up feeling stressed, anxious or just completely not like ourselves.
Meditating is a great way to reset and breathe.
Meditation helps you to focus on nothing but your breathing and letting go of the everyday stress.
This can also be used with one of these other selfcare tips, like taking a bath or at home facial.
If meditating is something that you have no experience in or something your new to and need help with there are apps that can assist. Two apps that I like are Headspace and Calm.
This is also a great way to take care of your mental health.

Read A Book
This is one of my favorite things to do to take care of my self. When I’m feeling extremely stressed, overwhelmed or like my mind is racing I take a time out and read.
When I can immerse myself in the book I’m reading and not think about anything but the storyline it calms me.
It helps me to focus on something else so I can come back and center myself again and feel calm.
I love reading on my kindle books, on my kindle app.
It’s the best I have my whole collection of books on there and I don’t have to worry about carrying bools around.
Another great thing about the kindle app is I downloaded it on my phone and I can read from anywhere.
Reading isn’t for everyone but it definitely helps me.
