8 Simple Ways to Practice Self Care

This post is sponsored by Bioré, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

1. At-Home Spa Day
One of my goals this year is to focus on me. I love the analogy that they give on the flight to take care of yourself first. Self-care is an emergency so treat it like an emergency situation and make yourself a property. Each week I set a self-care day. I make sure that I have my favorite self-care/beauty products in stock like my Bioré® Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and Bioré® Pore Clarifying Toner

2. Track Your Accomplishments
This year I started tracking my accomplishments and it's actually one of the best feelings in the world. Each morning I cross off my accomplishments from the day before, and it's actually has turned into a routine for me. Each month of track and focus on three new habits that I would like to turn into a routine, and in the areas that I need to work on. They'll carry over to the next month.

3. Mindful Eating
It's so important to watch what we eat. Too often we typically just grab and go, and do not strategically put any thought process into the foods in which we're consuming. It only takes a few minutes to create and execute a menu plan. Start by creating a list of all of the foods in which you have your home and the meals you can create with those items. Create a grocery list based off of the foods you need, and don't forget to include your snacks a well.

4. Unplug
As much as I love social media and the amazing connections that I've made. It's so important to incorporate a day to unplug and allow yourself to be the best version of yourself and live in the moment. This doesn't have to be the same day each month. Pick a day that works for you, and if the day isn't scheduled and it just happens. That's even better!

5. Gratitude
Whether it's keeping a journal of what you've done or accomplished. It's so important to show gratitude. It's also amazing to look back on and reflect on those not-so-perfect days.

6. The Joy of Gifts
As a parent, I've noticed it's super hard for us parents to gift ourselves. We always have everyone else's needs first and tend to put our wants last on the priority list. Whether it's a new book or a lipstick that's been on your "wish list" treat yourself to something special that you want.

7. Create
Whether it's creating a weekly spread for your planner or creating a batch of your favorite cookies. Take a moment to create. Doing what you love allows your creative juices to flow, and allows you to feel mindful and productive.

8. Build a Self-Care Kit
Of course, I save my favorite for last. I love building self-care kits. They're pretty much like rewarding yourself for self-care. I typically will fill a pretty box or basket with my favorite products like my favorite book or magazine, fuzzy socks, chocolate, and my scents and locations. Beauty items like the Bioré® Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and Bioré® Pore Clarifying Toner.

Bioré® Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
Not all pore strips work like Bioré® Pore Strips! Unlike other pore strips, Bioré® Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips use a blend of C-bond technology to safely remove dirt, oil, and blackheads. These strips work like a super magnet, locking onto and lifting out deep-down dirt, oil, and EVEN blackheads from your most clogged pores. Bioré® Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are the trusted, dermatologist-tested way to purify pores.
