Self Care Sundays

 

Self care Sunday is one of the major parts of me taking better care of myself this year. Self care Sundays concentrates mostly on my physical outward appearance, but this ultimately connects to my mental and spiritual health as well. As they say, “when you look good you feel good”, and I’ve learned how true this is, especially since becoming a mother. It’s so easy to get caught up taking care of my husband, daughter, and everything else in the house, that I forget to take care of myself. I promised myself I would do better, that I must do better in 2017, for my own health and sanity. This is only one of the pieces of the puzzle for my self-care, but they’re all equally important in helping me accomplish my goal. 

My husband’s work schedule is never consistent through the week (including random Saturdays), but Sundays are his guaranteed days to be off. This means Sunday is my guaranteed day to have designated me time for a few hours which is where the whole “self care Sunday” part comes in. Self care Sundays are for my body and hair care. I have created a schedule for what I will be doing each Sunday of the month. My current schedule goes as planned:

1st Sunday of the month: 

Shampoo and condition hair

Protective style hair

Touch up eyebrows 

Paint nails new color

2nd Sunday of the month:

Cowash hair

Protective style hair

Mud mask

3rd Sunday of the month:

Deep condition and cowash hair

Protective style hair

Sugar body scrub

Touch up eyebrows

*This Sunday is when I soak and take a bath. I let the deep condition sit in my hair while I’m relaxing and using my body scrub*

4th Sunday of the month:

Shampoo and condition hair

Protective style hair

Mud mask

Shave 

Two things I do every Sunday is deep clean/scrub my face, as well as, use black head removal strips on my nose. Now that I have a set schedule for my grooming on Sundays it all seems less overbearing. I used to get a little overwhelmed trying to keep up with specifically my hair schedule. Natural hair is a lot of work but being inconsistent causes unhealthy hair and doesn’t promote hair growth. So far this schedule is perfect for my needs and I’m excited to see what this consistency will do for my health and hair in the long run!

Do you have a day set to the side you designate as a “me time” day. If so, what is your routine and how has it helped you? If not, get one ASAP! I promise it’ll change your life.

Happy and blessed Sunday everybody!
