Hope you’s doing great in these not so fun times.
Today I come bearing a listicle, I think love them tbh. It’s going to be about my top 5 self-care activities. I don’t think it comes as a surprise that one should practice self-care, paying attention to yourself should not be a compromise and some are activities that don’t cost a dime or make you sweat.
So here goes:
Oh no! This has nothing to do with masks that you now put on a daily when going out. Here I am referring to facial masks. If you read HERE then you will know my go to mask which is not only readily available but efficient as well is mealie meal. Impuphu guys! It does the things for my skin in terms of exfoliating.
I will repeat this. I would rather have marks and spots on my face than a rough face with all those white thingy stuff. Anever! Besides mealie meal, my other go to products are from Avon. These then compliment my sister’s mealie meal.
I prefer to mask just before my bath or at night before I wash my face for bed. I mask once or twice a week.
I am better off blogging than vlogging: what nonsense is that 👆🏽
Of course! Nothing like a spud and yummy dairibord yoghurt dip to do the trick (very cheap and always available from my local shops). Not forgetting popticorn.
Sometimes you just want to eat good food, not your usual sadza and veg mix or maguru. Wash down with a glass of some dry red and have an early night. Simple. Best believe that will be the best sleep and the next day will definitely be a good day.
The only downside to this is cooking. Its not everyday that I am in a cooking mood.
3. Yoni steaming
Yall know what the yoni is, right?! Take care of the yoni and you will live a happy life. A whole blog on this will come, one day, not today.
But basically, its steaming down there and it leaves you (me) feeling fab and the yoni definitely smiling. More to details to follow. Or maybe not. I am new to this but I am not looking back…not anytime soon.
I do this once a month, specifically after bloody Mary’s visit or just before.
Don’t try this at home ladies, or maybe do…ITS UP TO YOU hunnie.
2. Working out
This is a new one as well, a huge thank you to the rona that has seen us spending lots of time at home trying out new things.
It genuinely started as a challenge and something to pass time with, keeping busy kind of thing. Then I got to enjoy it.
That thing about exercising and it relieving stress nton nton…its true. I believe it. There’s something about exercising that takes the tension away and if done in the morning, you are guaranteed of a feel-good day.
It is however, important to note that I have only been motivated this far because I don’t work out to kill myself. Ngilivila thank you and just ten minutes of jumping around and screaming and groaning and doing everything wrong is just what I need. So do not expect any results. Again, thank you.
Though I might need to again add that someone’s son says he is seeing the difference…I don’t know if I believe that but it is definitely the motivation I need. Don’t stop dude.
I love sleeping, that is no secret. But sometimes I sleep because I really have to because not doing so may lead to a breakdown. Really.
I just want to get away from it all. Be it from many work-related things that all need my attention almost at the same time or people…
Its more like a temporary fix from my problems. But best believe when I wake up, I will kick ass – well, there’s no choice but I’ll still get shit done.
*Bonus* – just for control: a long hot shower counts! With a shower gel of course especially after a long day or on Sundays where you have time to pay extra attention to all corners of your body.
Currently I’m using Nez’ bubbles – Wild Rose (check it out) , shout out to Nez! It’s almost finished though so it’s a perfect chance to try out other scents.
So, these are my top five, but there is more. What are your favourite or top self-care activities that you do?
