3 Things To Do For Yourself Today

Because Sundays are for rejuvenation… 

To break my Sunday cycle, I started off by telling myself this: You are a beautiful, hard-working, selfless being, and you deserve this time. Treat yourself.

So I did. Three things, every Sunday, for myself. I’m sharing them to give y’all some ideas, and hopefully inspire you to take a day off — completely — and cater to your needs. Follow along with this series if you feel like your “you” time is missing.

Relax. Start today with a hot bath. When is the last time you decided to take one, with no agenda to get out? Take your good ol’ time with this one, my friends. Fill the tub with salts, florals, and scrubs — this one is my favorite. Take all of that stress that came along with a busy week and let it melt and steam away. Light some candles. close your eyes, breathe deep, and release.

Primp. So, you’re super duper clean from your bath, your cuticles soft and prepped. Now is the perfect time to paint your nails a sweet hue to sass up the week ahead of you. I’m not the type of girl to normally sport painted nails. I pick the paint off, ruin them by planting, or don’t even bother in the first place. But when they’re fresh and colorful, it’s just… nice. It makes me feel a little bit more put together. So giving myself a little DIY mani in the comfort of my home is a treat.

Reward. Give yourself a gift. Think about what you want and need at that exact moment in your life, and reward yourself a bit. This gift doesn’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful. For example, I’m feeling a bit drained and dragged by the weather. It’s not warm, not snowing, just cold and rain. The sky is grey, and I need some freshness. I walked over to the tiny flower shop down the street and asked the woman to put together a springy little sprig bundle to cheer me up. Walking home with them in my hand, and putting them in a little mason jar next to my bed instantly made me feel happier.

I’m challenging you to clear your schedule today and do 3 things for yourself. You work your butt off, and deserve some time for yourself. If you try this out, let me know how it went, and if you feel rested and rejuvenated, let’s keep this up.

  1. I love this so much, it’s so important to take time out to take care of ourselves. It’s so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind that is life. xx

  2. I’m really good about doing the first two things on a weekly basis. I’ve started to make time to relax on a regular basis to avoid feeling overwhelmed by stress. Taking time to primp and do my nails is also a great way to pause and just focus on myself. Thanks for sharing these ideas!

  3. Its really great to give self a pamper treatment. One for body, next for mind and last for soul.
    I myself is indulging for a weekly head massage which just relaxes me.
    Thanks for sharing

  4. This is really great, we often forget to care for ourselves and it’s important to have a reminder. If we don’t care/love ourselves, who will?

  5. I love a Sunday pamper sesh! Although Sunday is also my prep day so I tend to wear a face mask and put coconut oil all over my body and start prepping during that (in a robe!). It takes forever to dry so I like to do something productive while I wait. I find not enough people take care of themselves.

  6. First of all I want to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Appreciate it!

    Good day ladies and Gentle men, i want to give thanks and honor to this great man who deserve it, i never taught i could be happy in life again cause my Husband left me 6months ago because i was unable to get pregnant for him after 3years of marriage, but the great Lord brought back my happiness within 24 hours by helping me bring back my Husband and also cast a pregnancy spell for me that help me get pregnant to my first child ever in life.

  8. Thank you for this post Madisyn. An interview I just read of Aislinn O’Sullivan ex-wife of the The edge from U2… She shares about the simple things in life that actually makes a difference and the importance of doing things for your self. It kinda resonated with me. http://bit.ly/2rO5Ryf
