Pamper Yourself

relax body  soul

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” – Oscar Wilde 

Many of us have a hard time pampering ourselves, as it can feel self-indulgent to do so. However, there are many healthy benefits to treating ourselves well, such as alleviating tension and stress, through regular massage or other relaxation methods.

Treating ourselves well doesn’t necessarily mean eating anything we want or indulging in expensive purchases. It can simply mean taking extra time for meditation with music and candles, or luxuriating in some scented pleasures.

For instance, many enjoy aromatherapy with the aromatic plant extracts and essential oils to soothe their senses, and enhance well-being.

For myself, I happen to love Cinnamon Buns Shower Gel which lathers up great, and smells very much like actual cinnamon buns which I haven’t eaten in years. However, for now, I’m content with enjoying my calorie free fragrant experience in their place! 🙂

Surrounding ourselves with beautiful flowers, and other visually pleasing sights, can lift our day, as well as, lounging around reading a great book, or watching a fun movie!

Even communicating on social media can be a relaxing treat too!

Just joined Instagram the other day, and find it fun so far!

What are some of your favorite ways to pamper yourself?

  1. Thank you for this important reminder, dear Cathie!
    Treating ourselves well is so important. How can we truly treat anybody well, if we do not start with ourselves.
    I like to sit down with a couple of homemade cinnamon scones and a coup of coffee or tea. Not only is the scones recipe I developed super tasty, it also is very healthy with good nutrition. This way I know that I do something good for my body, mind and soul at the same time.
    Not zero calories, though! 😉
    Much love,
    Steffi

    • Love the image, and (no doubt the delicious taste), of those cinnamon scones you described Steffi!! 🙂 And, nutritious too! Wow! Sounds like the best of all worlds, taking care of all parts. Whats a few calories? 🙂 Love, Cathie
