Seriously though, this is not a joke! In the beauty and hospitality industries we treat and beau-tify everyone else for their day off or special occasion, but it’s important to sit back, relax and take care of little ol’ me too (with a glass of wine – duh).
- Give yourself the gift of five minutes Yes, just five minutes! Not five minutes on a bathroom break, five minutes on Facebook or five minutes while you’re rocking the kiddo to sleep – five actual minutes to sit, reflect and think about a little three-letter word: Y-O-U.
- Eat well Meal planning can be a dirty word (it is in our house), but feeding your body with the proper fuel does two things: First, think of your energy – oh the energy… Can we get an espresso over here – and second, the self satisfaction! No matter how confident you are, we all cherish the glow our skin has when we’re healthy and well fed.
- Education Find something to learn, anything! Pick up a magazine, watch an online tutorial or just ask around for wisdom from your girl gang.
- Guilty pleasures Yes, yes and yes. We all have them. Here’s a quick list of ours: a lunch break blowout, all things chocolate, buying a second pair of our favorite shoes (because you can never have too much of a good thing – right?) and treating ourselves to a pamper sesh with our new Hello Salon Pro samples! Allow yourself to indulge at least once a month.
