🍂✒This week has taken a turn to “wellness” for me.
Yesterday, I realized . . . I hadn’t dry brushed for a while.
I wrote about it in a post a couple of years ago. A few readers contacted me to thank me for the recommendation.
Dry brushing is a little daily-life changer on the cheap. All you need is a natural bristle brush. Amazon has a wealth of brushes available for purchase. I purchased mine at our local variety store, Fred Meyer, with a coupon.
I am quite content with the experience of natural brushing . . . however, when you begin reading into this concept of care you will find phrases like, “I follow dry brushing with a massage oil“, and “I follow up with my fascia blaster“.
You may wish to take the experience to the next level. For me, it’s about circulation and soft skin. A reduction in cellulite, would be considered a perk.
When time permits, I follow up with coconut oil mixed with grapefruit oil or squeeze a some citrus into the coconut oil now and then. My usual follow up is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair. ( I keep an eye on QVC for deals.)
I love this quote from Steve Maraboli. When my “delightful chaotic” persona returns, I always write his words in my planner.
The notion of placing some of my “self-care” on the back burner has me re-working my goals for October.
- Work on centering my “functional yet easily distracted self”.
- Focus on management of time. Schedule self-care. Make more time to be with your loved ones, call them . . . get the calendar out . . . make plans. Schedule learning time. Make time to comment on a friend’s blog post. Plant the bulbs waiting in the garage. Paint and re-do a room.
- Celebrate and savor October . . . sure you can be thinking of Christmas . . . but LIVE OCTOBER, don’t let it slip by.
Style your Thursday,
