2018 is supposed to be my year of self care, however, we haven’t been talking about it that much! Throughout the year, I’ve been trying to discover what my balance is between doing what’s good for myself and my body, but that I don’t enjoy as much and then…self-indulgence. Most of the time, instead of straddling between both, I lean heavily on indulgence, but what else is new? College me would’ve loved to celebrate Cinco de Mayo today with all of my friends, but late 20’s me is too tired for all of that. Instead, I’ve had a really peaceful day that felt balanced between a bit of work, socializing, and some of my favorite things.
Today, I’m proud to have not put any toxins into my body (alcohol) and instead had a nice milk tea and pampering of one of my favorite masks. During the busiest times, it often feels like we don’t even have the time to take care of ourselves. I can say that as of lately, more than ever, I’ve felt that I haven’t had enough hours in the day. There were a few times in the last couple of weeks that I even considered pulling an all nighter to complete some of my tasks from work. That sort of thing just isn’t acceptable after college!
However, you celebrated today or didn’t, I hope you all had a day that you just enjoyed. Currently, I can’t believe how late it is and how not tired I am. I’m also enjoying a new show – Killing Eve and wearing my mask (above) for longer than 15 minutes and loving every part of it.
For this mask, it’s recommended that you wear it for 15 minutes before washing it off. The other alternative is wearing overnight, which seem like two extremes to me. Readers, do you ever consider wearing any of your masks overnight when you head to bed? My biggest worry is that I end up with a mess on my pillowcase the next morning since I’m more of a mover when I’m sleeping. Would love to hear your thoughts on this!
