Hi guys, in this post I’m going to be telling you all how I practised self care this weekend. It is so easy to get caught up in work and other commitments that we forget to take some time out to look after ourselves – we are all guilty of this. Self care is essential. It is something that you provide for you. In order to practise self care, you need to be able to identify your own needs and take the necessary steps to meet them. The result? You will feel more confident, productive and happier!
I booked a spa treatment last month but wasn’t able to get an appointment as all weekends were booked. Fortunately, I was able to get a 2 hour slot yesterday. I went to Montcalm Royal London House, which is in the City (not too far from Old Street). I hadn’t been to the spa since I went to Amsterdam, so we are talking 3/4 months. I had the most amazing body massage. In addition to this, I used the sauna and steam room (twice) and the jacuzzi as well. This brief retreat was needed so I am so glad I was able to go. In 2018, I vow to have a spa morning once every 2-3 months.
When I left the spa, I was very hungry because I didn’t have breakfast before I left, so I walked to The Breakfast Club but there was a queue outside and I hate waiting for a long time to eat food, so I went to Bills instead. I had a lovely green smoothie, scrambled eggs on toast and a salad. When it comes to restaurants, Bills are a favourite of mine and not because their calamari is pretty amazing, I just love the atmosphere and the staff are always really friendly and helpful.
Once I’d finished, I went back to my area and got my eyebrows done. On the subject of perfect brows, the struggle is real. I’m still applying castor oil to them every night so hopefully the left one will have a growth spurt (the hairs are quite sparse).
So that was my Self Care Saturday!
What do you do to practice self care this week or this weekend? I’d love to hear from you all.
