Love Thyself

Standard

Hiya Dears!

Well, I just spent a sold three and a half hours editing a proposal for my assistantship advisor. Let me tell you, getting paid decent bucks to read and edit things is awesome.

On an unrelated note, a blogger health lady that I follow posted a thing about ways to improve your self care, or something like that. Anyway, I jotted down the list and thought I would share it with you lovely folks. Can’t hurt to self-care, right? RIGHT.

  1. Take a relaxing candlelit bath
  2. Go to a restorative yoga class
  3. Take a walk outside
  4. Prepare a healthy meal full of local veggies
  5. Treat yourself to a massage
  6. Meditate for 10 minutes when you wake up
  7. Cozy up in front of the fire with a cup of tea
  8. Go to a cafe and read a book
  9. Host a girls night
  10. Have a date night in
  11. Treat yourself to a mani/pedi
  12. Color!
  13. Start each day with a glass of warm, lemon H20
  14. Take 5-10 deep breaths whenever your feeling stressed
  15. Send a handwritten card to a loved one
  16. End each day by writing down 3 things your grateful for
  17. Unplug for an hour, a day, or a week!
  18. Journal
  19. Buy yourself flowers
  20. Listen to live music
  21. Have a solo dance party

I actually do a lot of these, so I guess that means I enjoy pampering myself, which well… is true, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. You’ve got to take care of number one, folks. Don’t forget that!

x’s and o’s as always ❤

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
