Self Care Sunday

I am a working mom and my job is kind of rough right now. But there are some weekends that by Sunday I am TOTALLY ready for the kiddos to go back to school and daycare. This was an especially trying weekend with tantrums, germs and more messes than I could clean. So I decided to give up on my to-do list Sunday evening after the kids were asleep. I did some self care and decided to call it “Self Care Sunday”.

I put on avocado clay mask goop. I found some at Wal-greens and decided to give it a spin.

I soaked my tootsies in a tea tree oil foot bath. And then scrubbed approximately 3 pounds of dead skin off of them. This was a foot soak sample I got in a goodie bag somewhere but boy howdy did it work!


And then I caught up with the Grocery Girls and a podcast I missed a couple weeks back. I paired this with some sock knitting and a spiked hot chocolate. You can never go wrong with peppermint schnapps and rich dark chocolate.

I still felt kind of guilty for not working on my to-do list. So I gave up and went to bed early. I’m curious, how do you guys self care?

  1. That sounds glorious, I may steal some of your self-care ideas! I tend to wrap myself in a fleecy blanket cocoon and knit or crochet with some mindless stuff on my laptop as background noise. Plus marshmallows.

  2. Sounds like a great evening! I soak in a hot tub, sometimes with epsom salts or a bath bomb, and read and drink tea until I feel relaxed. Sometimes I do a facial mask as well. Then I watch TV or listen to podcasts and knit.
