Loveselfcare is looking for ideas and products to use for your self-care practice. Here is a list of items to make it easy for you to relax, destress and feel like your best self at almost any time. You can keep a supply of these wherever you might need them – in the car, at home, at work, etc.
Home Decor – Art, Plants, and Your Favorite Pictures
One way to relax and feel better is to surround yourself with items you think are beautiful. Finding artwork, prints, colors you love, or objects that remind you of happy times will help you to spark joy in your life.
For example, one item you could add to your self-care practice is to use a coloring book as one of your tools and create your own art. Doing this can also calm you down and help you to relax.
Scents You Love – Candles, Incense, Essential Oils and Fragrances
Another way to relax and minimize stress is to use your sense of smell. Smell has a strong associative link to memory and you can evoke happy ones by choosing the right scents. It could be your favorite fragrances in perfumes, candles, essential oils or incense.
Self Care Activities to Keep You Grounded
Whatever makes you feel centered in the present moment is a good experience when you need to relax a bit. Whether you choose coloring in a meditative book with beautiful colored pencils or use writing prompts from a book of lists to get you thinking, do whatever it takes to put you in a good frame of mind. And, what about journals? Writing down your thoughts is an excellent way to find out what you are feeling and thinking.
Self Care Books to Inspire You
Having some books that can inspire you to dream of future projects like a book on taking a retreat or reading a specialty magazine like Bella Grace can calm you down in very little time.
Relaxing Tools like Water Fountains or Spa Music
Another way you can relax is to find music you find relaxing. Spend some time locating music that is calming or relaxing to you, so you have it ready. For instance, you can find stations you enjoy on Pandora or Amazon, or natural healing sounds like running water in a spa fountain. What about chimes or singing bowls? There are lots of products to add to your self-care practice when you know where to look.
Self Care Card Decks to Practice Mindfulness or Relaxation
If you have card decks like the ones above on hand, you can select one at random and begin wherever you are to relax right there and then. This can be a powerful way to change your thoughts in a matter of minutes when you are really stressed.
Self Care Products for Your Wonderful Body
Much as we try to pretend our body is a machine and push it to the limit, our body will remind us over time that it needs attention. The older you get the more attention you will need to pay before the “cracks in the foundation” of you start to show.
If you just show your body some love in the form of lotions and other pampering products, you may find it returns the favor with healthy skin, hair and vitality.
Your body will feel comfortable in its own skin when surrounded by textures that are soft and luxurious. Surrounding yourself with blankets (weighted or not), pillows and cozy nests of comforters will go along way towards relaxing you. Finding the right kind of pajamas and robe that make you feel like you are wearing a warm hug are also worth the time it takes to locate them.
