Hello from the Philippines. How is your quarantine life going?
Today, I listed down my basic daily self-care activities and I want to share them with you in case you need a little pat in the back, and a little hey, you got this, okay.
1. Simple Skincare Routine
For me, skincare is basic of the basic like, this is next to eating and drinking though I know some people regard this as a lesser priority. However, in my experience, waking up with a healthy glow in your face makes all the difference, like I can receive any type of news today because honey, I’m glowing!
Knowing that your skin feels better and looks better (yes without makeup) is, correct me if I’m wrong, a magical feeling for us girls and women. Knowing that you look your best boosts the positive vibes around you. So no matter what happens, skincare is life girls!
2. Stretching / Exercise (No Matter How Minimal)
If you have been reading a bit from my blog, you would know this, that my everyday workout routine is less than a minute, even less than 30 seconds, I think. Just a few stretches here and there, ten counts of jumping jacks, and ten counts of squats. That’s it.
I think we don’t have to exactly copy what others do. Instead, it is better if we still do it, still exercise because our body needs it, but we are allowed to alter the way things are done based on our understanding of ourselves to match our personalities. So, go girl, shake those arms while sitting!
3. Daily Shower
This one is easily one of my fave things to do. I mean, being an extra cleaner, of course cleaning myself is the best. However, I do find this as one of those activities that differ depending on the culture where we are brought up. For us Filipinos, we are a bit too clean in general because we hate smelling sweaty, we hate smelling the natural scent of our skin and scalp, so we shower and wash our hair daily.
There is no better feeling in the world than stepping out of the shower, smelling fresh and clean, and then spritzing on your favorite perfume, and then putting on your cute, sexy, frilly, whatever it is dress or jumpsuit, or romper, or your cashmere loungewear and then brushing your hair, and then putting on some light makeup. This just lifts moods. Seriously, girls. This does.
Hang in there and stay safe everyone. Lovelots.
