My self-care routine requires no money, just water and Epsom salts.I often wondered how I would get any time to meditate when my day was already off to a bad start.I began my day by hitting that dang snooze button way too many times, and if you listened or read Mel Robbins 5 second rule, you know that that is a big no-no. I know that book changed how I did things in a big way. So grateful for you, Mel Robbins. I learned to take better care of myself after reading that book. You might ask, how the heck did that happen? Well, procrastination was my way of sabotaging my self-care routine. It was satisfying claiming not having time to do what I needed the most: Self-care. I don’t know if this resonates with you and if it does, today is the day to get this self-care routine on track.
Let’s get to doing this. Shall we?
Do you want to meditate but don’t have time?
You are going to take a bath, and you have already started running the bath with some Epsom salts.
You are on point right now. Do you even know it?
Start with getting yourself in that tub. Suppose you don’t have a bath pillow. Use a towel. Roll it up nicely to fit under your neck. Nobody needs a stiff neck.
Now lay down in that lovely warm bath with Epsom salts, or you can opt for some lavender. Close your eyes and relax.
Whether five minutes, ten minutes, or more, you give yourself tenderly, loving care. You are adding self-care to the list of I am the bomb dot com.
Like it’s your time.
I do this at the end of my day, but nothing says that you can’t do this at the start of your day. You are the boss. Nobody tells you how to do your self-care. You feel me.
Oh, bonus. Did you know that Epsom salts contain magnesium?
Yeah, they do.
Magnesium is used to relax muscles and relieve pain by relaxing the muscles.
Epsom salts are a natural source of magnesium.
Happy bath time.
Start your self-care routine with a bath.
