Beth Macbain Posted March 21, 2020 Share Posted March 21, 2020 We are all feeling, at least a little, like many things in our lives are beyond our control right now. No need to rehash all those things here. In truth, the only thing we have complete control of is ourselves - so it makes sense for us to take really good care of ourselves right now, not just physically, but emotionally and mentally. The first thing I noticed physically as a result of staying home all the time is dehydration. I was getting itchy, and realized that I'm not drinking nearly enough water, or moisturizing well enough. Today I'm exfoliating. All over, and giving my skin some much needed TLC. If you don't have specialized products at home, you can easily make some. Got some coffee grounds, olive oil or coconut oil? Honey? Sugar or salt? A little googling will lead you to plenty of DIY face and skin care products on the cheap. I'm keeping my patio door cracked open even though it's cold outside not only for the fresh air, but for the ambient noise that I'm finding calming. That's just a couple of the things I'm doing to take care of myself right now. I hope we can use this thread to get ideas and share the things we're doing, and to encourage each other to look after ourselves. So what are you doing to be nice to yourself today? 6 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
