Three small acts of self care

Blog post

In today’s post I’m sharing three small things I do to look after myself, the things that make me feel good about myself – The things I do for a bit of self care if you will.

After having six teeth removed, a year and a half of braces and regular check ups every six months, it’s safe to say my teeth are my pride and joy. They are straight, they are white and I’ve been complimented on them on a few times so I try my best to take care of them. Unfortunately I do drink more Pepsi and eat more sugar than recommended but this just means I up my care. I brush them regularly using charcoal toothpaste, floss, and once a week I will use charcoal powder. You only get one set of teeth and knowing mine are in the best condition they can be makes me feel really good about myself.

Some may see this as a vain, excessive luxury rather than a necessity but I find having freshly bleached roots and newly gelled nails makes me feel like a new woman and a million times more put together than I actually am. I haven’t had my nails done in a while actually (£££) but it’s on my to do list once we have moved back home (There’s no point paying for nail extensions then moving – Chances are they will just break!).

Ok so let me explain this one: I’m not big on dieting or anything like that but when I’m going to the gym I tend to use My Fitness Pal alongside it to track my macros and calorie intake. Truthfully though? It makes me miserable. Miserable and hungry. I’ve now decided that to be the happiest and healthiest version of myself, the best thing to do is scrap the app and eat whatever I feel like: I know what I should be eating – three decent meals a day, good, filling snacks and that I should be drinking 2-3 litres of water a day…But I also know that a bar of a chocolate or a cheeky McDonalds isn’t gunna kill me. It’s all about balance and I need to remember that cos I feel so much better when I have a mix of both good and ‘bad’ foods.

TELL ME: What do you do when you need to look after yourself or feel better about yourself?
