Have a Self care Sunday
In fact, make every Sunday a self care Sunday. Take some time out for YOU. Take a nice shower or bath. Shampoo your hair. Apply your hair mask, cover with your shower cap, head wrap or microfiber towel. Let sit for 10 mins. Give yourself a mini facial. Do a full body scrub. Apply your oil or cream with a bit more love, now that you have some time. Put your feet up. Read a book. Catch the sunset. Love yourself.
