Self Care Resolution (and a giveaway)

relaxing bathI was having a drink with a friend the other day and we were discussing about how often the demands of everyday life; family, relationships, work, and the like, can lead us to neglect ourselves  in favour of trying to keep everything going. Us mums especially are prone to giving up their own well being to ensure that everyone else is kept happy, and yet in real terms if ‘we’ aren’t happy then no one else is happy either.

Now that’s not just lip service, have a think about how it feels after you go and have your hair done, you walk out of the salon feeling like a million dollars and everything else seems a little bit brighter (even if sometimes it’s just for a few minutes). So it got me thinking that given 2013 is only a few weeks away, why not resolve to put some time aside each week for ourselves to do something that helps restore our mind, body, and spirit.

My Resolution is all about water. I’ve decided that once a week I will either spend some time at the beach listening to the waves crash on the shore (something that always makes be feel better), or draw a nice hot bath, light some candles and listen to some relaxing music, or I might head over to my friend’s place to have a spa in her pool, or if I am feeling particularly in need of repair I will have a restorative soak in the local mineral pools. This connection with water just seems to always lift my spirits and the options can easily fit into my life without too much hassle or expense!

  1. My Self Care 2013 Resolution is to ALWAYS wear gloves while washing dishes and gardening.
    I would love to win the Silk Spa Voucher 🙂

  2. My self care resolution is to take more care of my feet – I notice now I wear open shoes more that they really need a bit more tlc!! Nothing worse than seeing scarey cracked heels and nothing nicer than seeing tootsies with a gorgeous shade of colour on the nails 🙂
    Silk spa voucher would be fantastic – xxx

  3. My self care resolution is to drink my water bottle at work every day -and more wine with my girls;-) would love the silk spa voucher or Niue body lotion

I'd love to hear your thoughts
