On this Friday, I woke up feeling like a Spring Chicken. By that I mean, if you read my previous post, I’m feeling more motivated than I have been for the past couple of weeks. I woke up at 5:00 a.m. (unintentionally — my melatonin must’ve worn off by then), took a shower and watched Sex and the City reruns on E! I made myself a nutritious breakfast consisting of two eggs over easy, a small whole wheat waffle, and berries. You have to make sure your plate is colorful! That’s why, for lunch, I ordered sweet potatoes in my spinach and romaine salad. You gotta have antioxidants in your diet!
I’m sure many of us are ballin’ on a budget, so without further ado, here are some ways you can indulge in self-care without breaking your bank account:
- Take a shower!
- Put on makeup!
- Paint your own nails!
- Write down everything that you are grateful for!
- DRINK WATER!!!!
- Eat healthy!
- Take your medications! (if applicable)
- Take vitamins!
- Sit down and have a cup of coffee or tea!
- Take a nap if you feel tired!
- Watch a comfort movie!
Okay, maybe you can treat yourself to online shopping, but just be frugal about it!
Happy self-care day, whenever that may be for you. Try to have one at least once a week, or make time every night after you get home from work. You can’t just not take care of yourself, am I right!?
