My Nightly Self-Care Routine

I started taking my self-care routine to the next level about a year ago by going to bed at 8:00 P.M. every night. I spend roughly an hour unwinding, clearing the noise in my head so when my husband comes to bed I’m ready to go to sleep.

I turn on the salt lamp, get the diffuser going with some soothing essential oils, and roll an essential oil blend on my shoulders, and chest. I also use a relaxing Lavender scent hand cream and a Lavender essential oil stick to use under my nose for extra relaxing benefits. 

All lights out, no computers, no reading, no television, nothing but the soft glow of the salt lamp.

Part of the new routine also includes sleeping 10 hours a night or as close as I can. It has made a huge difference in my mental health. Physically I feel rested and much less fatigued. I also allow myself naps if Fibromyalgia is ruling my day.

If you can’t sleep the extra hours or take naps, you can still incorporate most of the self-care tips into your daily routine. Self-care is so important whether you have a chronic illness or not. Make sure to put your health first as often as possible to have your best life.
