Everyone needs self care in their life. It is essential to maintain our hygiene, but what happens when self care leaves you so exhausted that you literally cannot move.
I have just had a shower. I did the essentials, I washed my hair, and washed my body, but that was it. I look like chewbacca, my legs need shaving desperately, but just washing my hair and my body has left me exhausted, feeling dizzy, having minor palpitations, shaking and believe it or not, it makes me sweat – figure that one out!
I have a turban towel to wrap my hair up, and I have a hooded poncho towel that is designed for getting changed in public (beach/swimming pool Etc). I throw those on, and lay down on another towel so the bed doesn’t get wet, whilst my skin air drys. This is particularly helpful for my intertrigo to let air get to my skin.
I am not sleeping well at the moment, so I had a shower using my sleepy shower gel from Lush (it’s my joint favourite alongside Snow Fairy) as the scent helps me relax. I would love to be able to have a soak in the bath, but that is a no no, my bath chair doesn’t allow for soaking, hence having a shower. I’m also itching all over my body, especially my face, which isn’t fun. The itching is usually a pain response, but not sure what is triggering this today.
As we head into a new week what do you do to practice self care? Why not send me some hints that I can try out!
Lots of love xxx
