We hear this buzz word every day lately, SELF CARE. And honestly I felt a lot of pressure to participate in (whatever SELF CARE means!?!).
After taking some time and really reflecting, I decided that Self Care is different for every person, what works for me may not work for you. For me, I need to be around good friends, experiences and family to feel recharged, for others it may mean a spa day ( I have the patience of a small fly so that would NEVER be my jam!) But what I did realize is that there are small things we can do on the daily that help us to take a minute, to recharge, to revive and to keep going!
I curated TWO different fall boxes this season.
The Self Care Pomme Beauty Box
Self CARE is aimed more towards restorative and therapeutic. Each product was hand picked by me, to relax, calm and chill yourself out in the midst of the chaos of our daily lives. Every product in the box is either made, or distributed by a CANADIAN company and designed to make your life just a little bit easier (because if that isn’t universal self care i don’t know what is!)
The Self Love Pomme Beauty Box
Self LOVE is aimed towards rejuvenation, re energizing and re-igniting that inner flame! Each product is designed to revive and energize from the inside out! Whether it is curing an (ahem hangover) or you are just trying to energize your best self this box is designed for you!
Whether you are more drawn to self love or self care, both boxes will help you to take 5 seconds or 5 hours to take care of YOU! Which at the end of the day is the ultimate POMMESHELL! To feel good about yourself on the outside AND the inside!!
While we have all the products you need to feel great we wanted to leave with you a few HOT TIPS that we love to follow taking care of our social self! Daneka sat down to share her favourite do’s and don’ts!
Self Care & Self Love DO’S
1. Challenge your negative thinking and thought patterns!
Negative thoughts strengthen as we give into them, our thoughts are our actions. – Use your GUA SHA on the regular to drain your lymphatic system and destress on the daily. We hold a lot of tension in our face (did you know that!?) and by regularly massaging with our Rose Quartz Gua Sha this will help to not only reduce fine lines and wrinkles (haaaayyy) it will help to remove tension and stress that can cause that nasty negative thinking!
2. Habits! (The good kind)
Fall is the best for starting back up with routines; workout routines, productivity hacks, meal prep, etc!
3. Did you know!?
It take 18 days to change a habit! – Make taking care of yourself a priority and do it consistently for 18 days! It is PROVEN when you love your hair, and feel confident on the outside you will start to feel REALLY good on the inside.
Even just 7 minutes of meditation away is proven to be the magic number, and its not that much time to carve out! – This is the key to health! Finish off each season with a Detoxing Grapefruit Soak (Self Care Box) or a quick re energizing mist from K Pure Naturals to crush your daily goals! (Self Love Box)
5. Try something NEW
Get outside your comfort zone. Try indoor rock climbing, sign up for a drop-in dance class, check out a show put on by the actors studio!
Purge old beauty products and/or clothing, and clean up! – don’t hold onto old crap! Donate the shampoo you don’t use, gift your jeans you don’t wear anymore. Believe us you will feel SO good! Plus its the perfect time of year to give back and help those in need! – We work hard at putting products in each box that you can USE and WILL use! The Squad wants to help stay clutter free with products that you need!
7. Spend time with loved ones
Reconnect with an old friend, call someone you miss. There is NOTHING better than hanging with people (or fur people) who light you up inside!
8. Evaluate friendships in a positive way
Instead of labeling a friend (or foe) ‘toxic’ (negative thinking!!) Rethink it as; it IS ok to disagree. It IS OK to be different! It IS ok to grow apart! – and hey maybe re kindle an old friendship with a simple gift of a fall box!
9. Mindless Scrolling
And not just on social media! Do everything you do with intention and purpose! You will be amazed what you can accomplish.
10. Embrace change.
Change is good. Change is inevitable and change will happen whether you like it or not, so lean in, accept it and be open to it!
And Finally! YOU. DO. YOU!
Who cares what people think. Who cares what the person next to you is doing. Who CARES. Do what makes you happy. Do what fuels your fire. Do what makes YOU FEEL GOOD! And do what challenges you to be your BEST SELF!
If you are feeling tired, bagged, run down. Lean into that. Take the bath, drink the tea, do a deep hair masque, have a nap, and feel good about it!
P.S Don’t forget to take care of YOU!
