Hey loves. I hope we are all well. Another day in quarantine. Another Saturday locked down and stuck at home.
Who would’ve thought we would be living like this? Never in a million years. Mental health is very important for us at this current moment and time because we are home and we have a lot going on around us.
So what best way to care of our mental health?
Self care saturday.
This blog post is about what I did today. From the morning till the late afternoon.
I woke up at 4am and started my day as usual. I studied Education 2 which is a course in my Bachelor of Education degree then I spent time with my gran and mom talking to them. Then I went to the outside room to study till 12:00 pm. I was also on Twitter and did some content creation in between. I didn’t study for that long though. I procrastinated a lot. Its cause I get random waves of inspiration and end up being on social media which always leads to my interactions with my people on Twitter.
How did I prep my self care rotuine?
Well today is my rest day from gym and I thought I would do yoga but I was not feeling it. Maybe I’ll do yoga tomorrow.
I started by performing a lemon and turmeric mask on my face.
Then I ran myself a bath, added Himalayan salt( made sure the water is warm) then also added Epsom salt. I was doing intense Afro beat exercises this week and also did Pilates exercise for the first time on Thursday. it was so fun. I will write a post soon about that experience.
Then I added baby oil in my water for moisture and sealing in moisture because in my country we are in our peak season of corona because its winter now and I want to make sure my skin receives the nourishment it receives.
Then I pushed back my nail cuticles and massaged them. I made sure to relax in the water and listen to music. Here are the songs I listened to, to set my mood:
- Daniel Caesar-Get you ft Kali Uchis
- Jhene Aiko -Spotless Mind
- Bruno Mars- Treasure
- Dua Lipa- Don’t Start now
That’s all I did. I’m about to eat , relax then nap and wake and work on my content creation.
Happy Saturdaying. Don’t forget to spoil yourself and preserve that mental health of yours.
