The time has come for you to start carving out some of your weekends for some “me time.” Folks are turning to what’s now being called Self Care Sunday as a reminder to take time, even if it’s just a little bit, to focus on their own needs. Self care is not relegated to Sunday and you can very well have Self Care Tuesday if that’s a day you generally can find some time alone. It’s all about taking time away from your responsibilities be they work, parenting, or otherwise to recharge.
Self Care Sunday is going to look different for everyone. For instance, if you’ve got a family it could only mean fifteen minutes. Or, if you can swing it, it could mean an entire afternoon. We’ve got ideas and products for you to use for various durations of your Self Care Sunday. Each idea centers you and will allow you to refresh by doing something just for yourself. Let’s get relaxed!
