Stress can definitely take a toll on our bodies in many ways—physically, emotionally and mentally.
I find that when I don’t have the time to slow down, that's when I need Self-care the MOST!
It’s important to take good care of YOU. #SelfCareLeadstoSelfLove
You not only deserve it, but when you’re feeling rested and recharged, you can accomplish more and support others better.
It’s not selfish because you’ll actually have more of you to give.
Coaching women in how to discover their own favorite self-care practices is one of the cornerstones my experience as an Independent Beauty Guide with LimeLife by Alcone.
Here are a few tips I’ve found my clients seem to like and may be helpful to you as well!
1. Take time each night to reflect on the gratitude you have for your beautiful body. Find one thing to be proud of, be grateful for, or to celebrate, as you wash your face and reflect on the day!
2. Attending the LimeLife by Alcone annual events, I’ve been introduced to the authors Martha Beck, Shawn Achor and Shirzad Charmine. Each has their unique perspective on self-awareness – which I actually consider a form of self-care!
3. Speak to yourself more kindly. Use your “mirror time” to tell yourself the things you long to hear… if you’re curious about this one, contact me!
4. Open your windows and blinds during the day to get vitamin D and fresh air. Go outside when you get the chance! Be sure to use sunscreen and moisturizer to protect your skin!
5. Exfoliate the skin on your entire body. Use a dry body brush, or one of our fabulous body care products Scrubtini or Bamboo Renew!
6. Put on a little lipstick – to brighten your face and make you feel amazing. Sometimes it’s the littlest things that make a difference!
What are you favorite ways to practice exquisite self care?

The love of writing began during the 1972 - 73 school year, while composing letters to my summer camp friends. From there I learned about the power of keeping a journal, a secret spot to get all my thoughts out on paper... the letter writing and journalling has continued and now I'm venturing into the word of Blogging!
