Do It! You deserve it! Self-Care Is Vital In Menopause

Self-care in menopause is not being selfish!

We, women, are caretakers all of our adult life. Perimenopause and menopause are periods in our lives where taking better care of ourselves is necessary. Pampering yourself is a must because it is one of the ways to invest in aging well.

Let’s start and give you tips on how to spoil yourself!

1. Music is healing

Put on some soothing, relaxing music; it has been proven that calming sounds have the power to ease anxiety and stress. You can even create a “sound bath” by listening to the YouTube selection suggested on the University of Nevada, Reno website. Dance to your favorite songs. It counts as exercising!

2. Facial mask – the beauty kind 😀 – COVID be gone

Your skin will be so happy to be nourished. Wear your most comfortable clothes and put on a facial mask. It can be a homemade one from eggs and honey. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy for you to feel good about it.

3. Candles as aromatherapy

Light some scented candles. Aromatherapy is a way to relax further. Light them while taking a bath too.

4. Manicure & Pedicure to feel good

Give yourself a manicure or pedicure if you can’t visit a salon. We all feel so much better when we look at our nice nails. Put a mask on your hands. They deserve it too after all those detergents and other chemicals they are exposed to.

You can give yourself a mani-pedi this while listening to music.

5. Exfoliate to rejuvenate the skin

Exfoliate the layers of dead skin on your face and body. Use sugar or Himalayan salt in a good quality oil to do it. That is all you need. Even coffee grind will do the trick.

6. Bubble bath is a de-stressor

If you chose to pamper yourself with a bubble bath while listening to music surrounded by candles, you could also read a good book. It can be a beautiful novel or a good book about your interests. Chose some light reading to make it even more enjoyable.

7. Hair is a must in menopause

Don’t forget your hair. Put a mask on it too. What your skin loves, your hair will be grateful also. Use olive oil or any other oil you have handy. If your hair is dry put some oil on it before you wash it so that the shampoo does not dry it out even more.

You can try and learn how to give your hair a good, almost professional blowout.

8. Cook for yourself from time to time your favorite dish

Make your favorite dish. The secret to proper weight management is being persistent with healthy eating, but that does not mean you can’t indulge in your favorite food from time to time. Try the 80-20% trick. Be vigilant 80% of your days and then indulge 20% of the time!

9. Take a nap when you need it

Take a nap. I know it sounds childish, but why not if you need it! Remember all the naps you didn’t want to take as a child!?

10. Party like nobody is looking LOL

Throw a party for yourself, or invite a friend, put on some music and dance!

Put on some nice clothes and go see a play or go to the movies. Visit the art gallery you always wanted or a museum with a beautiful exhibition. Fill your soul with beauty.

11. Heal with nature

Go for a walk in nature and heal your inner being with its vibrations, smells, and sounds.
