Block off the calendar. Put your phone on airplane mode. Self-care isn’t hard, but you DO need to make space for it. That means different things for different people – there really is no one-size-fits-all package – but it may start something like this:
- MAKING TIME
Pack the kids off to a sleepover. Silence the email and phone alerts. Unplug the doorbell, and tell your partner: “I love you, but tonight’s for ME.” They’re called boundaries, so don’t be afraid to set them and stick to them.
- SETTING THE SCENE
Dim the lights and create a sensual space. Scent is been proven to be an effective ritual when it comes to self-care – it can stimulate a relaxed mood, and trigger safe, nostalgic memories. So light your favorite candle, use diffuser sticks, or even a lightly fragranced room spray you love.
- FEEDING YOUR SOUL
Make a cocktail. Pour a glass of wine. Snuggle up with a cup of herbal tea or whatever beverage tickles your fancy. Prepare a tasty snack – something light that will keep your blood sugar levels on an even keel and help you feel nourished physically.
- FEELING BEAUTIFUL
- DOING THE THING
This is the freestyle part. Do something that brings you joy; something that you wouldn't normally schedule. Read a book. Watch your favorite TV show. Listen to music. Dance in your living room. Masturbate without any pressure of an end result. Take time to explore. Watch yourself in the mirror. Experiment with a sex toy specially made for women. The more comfortable you are with your own body, the more fulfilling your sex life will become. It’s good for your self-confidence, helps prevent cervical infections and UTIs, is good for your heart, your kegel muscles, and aids sleep. You’re welcome.
