3 Quick Ways to Kickstart Your Self-Care Routine

Updated: Oct 3, 2022

Self-care is a buzzword thrown around in wellness communities and on social

media all the time.

But what does it mean? It’s self-explanatory really – to put yourself first for once.

Self-care is about taking a moment to pause and giving yourself space, especially when life is at its most hectic.

Do you feel guilty at the very thought of self-care? Do you know you need it because you acknowledge you’re essentially ‘running on empty?’

Read on for 3 quick ways to kickstart your self-care routine, brought to you by Nicole from Body Wellness Beauty at her Thornlie beauty salon, self-care sanctuary.

1. Sleep

It’s extremely difficult to experience self-care living on little to no sleep.

On average, we need seven to eight hours of sleep a night. Some of us are better at getting to sleep than others. And our busy lives can lead to sleepless or at the very least, restless nights.

What can affect our sleep?

· Staying up late to watch the latest and greatest show on Netflix

· Late night parties or get-togethers

· Continuing with work and assignments after hours and right before bed.

Self-care is about taking a moment to pause and giving yourself space, especially when life is at its most hectic.

Sleep hygiene encourages to put down all our digital devices, or at the very least, limit screen time to reduce mental stimulation before sleep. Too much exposure can lead to sleep problems and even affect us in the waking hours by negatively impacting our concentration and mood.

Does chronic pain, sporting injuries and/or a worried mind keep you tossing and turning at night?

You may benefit from a few sessions with the Cocoon Wellness Pod. This wellness treatment is a full-body cushioned chamber that utilised full spectrum infrared and red-light therapy, with vibratory massage, aromatherapy and salt therapy to relax your body and mind.

Books your session today at your local Thornlie beauty salon.

Fall in love with taking care of yourself: mind, body, and soul. There is only one of you. You are truly once in a lifetime.

2. Connection

When was the last time you had a meaningful catch-up with your friends and other loved ones?

Belly laughs, sharing your stories of trials and tribulations with people who have your back, and being there for them too, is a form of self-care.

Making time to de-stress with your family and friends can shift your mood and bring on all the happy chemicals in your brain.

There’s a deeper relationship between self-care and connection, though, in the form of connection with nature and ourselves.

You can connect with nature, by:

· Enjoying a walk around the neighbourhood or along the beach

· Going on a hike with your friends

· Enjoying a cup of coffee and a good read in the sunshine.

Reconnect with your true self, by:

· Getting (back) into the hobbies you love, be it baking or crocheting, martial arts or salsa dancing.

3. Skincare as self-care

Taking the time to source the right products for your skin and sticking to a skincare routine is self-care.

Why? Because you’re giving back to your body and the skin that makes you unique and beautiful.

Replenish your skin and body with great-quality skincare products, like the Tuel skincare range.

Want to find out why people of all skin types are turning to Tuel? Indulge yourself in true self-care form with a relaxing and replenishing Tuel facial.

Even better, because we’re proud stockists of Tuel skincare products, you can get your hands on this salon-only purchase right here at your favourite Thornlie beauty salon.
