What are the differences and similarities between self care and self improvement?
After a rough (read: full of crying) few days, I decided to do some things to make me feel better.
1. Make a Smoothie
I'm trying to avoid dairy in the lead up to my show (because I'm singing all the time and I find that dairy makes me phlegmy) but I had just the perfect amount of milk left to make a fruit smoothie! I used low fat vanilla frozen yogurt for the thickness, plus a handful and a bit of raspberries and a long pour of blueberries. Do you like my measuring system. Either way- it was delicious.
2. Read for Fun
It's not often that I get to read just for my own pleasure. But now I'm two chapters further into Game of Thrones! A series that I love and enjoy, which captivates me even after months of neglecting the story.
3. Have a Bath
It feels so good to sink my tired body into scathing hot water. And the bath bombs make me feel all soft and smooth after too! Plus, pink water is just more interesting to photograph.
4. Celebrate My Appearance
Lately I've been really focused on "does it look like I've been crying?" And "I haven't been to the gym in a week. Am I losing my muscle?" So I wanted to take a second to look at myself and smile. I love having long hair and really white teeth and big blue eyes and nicely shaped eyebrows and big lips! Look at me! I'm gorgeous!
Doing these and other healing things are no guarantee to cure what ails me but boy has it helped me just for right now. And there's a light at the end of this tunnel. Your support until I get there is really appreciated. 😘💜💪🏻
