Daily Self Care Routine

Balancing school, work, business and family can be stressful and difficult at times. That’s why I believe it’s very important to practice some type of relaxing self care routine for yourself. Your self care routine can be as big or as small as you want it to be, so don’t stress about the amount of time you spend on your routines or how often you do them. Remember it’s all about you and what makes you feel relieved and stress free while caring for yourself. Check out my list below on what I do on a daily/ weekly basis.

Drink Hot Tea Daily

A hot cup of green tea always helps me relax on a daily basis, Its very soothing and good for your body. I drank a cup of green tea in the morning on my way to work. Some evenings I may drank a detox tea which helps relieves your body from unwanted detoxes in your body.

Exercise Daily

Work out daily to help relieve stress and clear your mind. I always say 20 minutes a day of will keep the stress way, Besides being health is wealth.

Weekly Skin Care Routine

Create a weekly skincare routine I usually exfoliate my skin every Sunday along with a nice facial clay mask. Taking care of your skin on a weekly basis or how often as you want helps you to not only feel relaxed but minimizes wrinkles and fine lines that can be caused from stressed.
