At WristBrella™, it’s no secret that we’re all about self care. We’re a small brand, founded by a busy mom who understands the challenges of managing a household, while also taking time to make sure your own needs are met.
With this in mind, we thought it might be helpful to share some of our favorite tips for incorporating self care into any lifestyle. Keep reading for the full scoop!
Tip #1: Let go of the idea that self care is selfish
First things first. If you’re someone who feels guilty about making time for yourself, we can’t stress enough that there’s nothing selfish about prioritizing your own health and happiness. To the contrary, because self care is critical to making sure that you stay motivated and show up as your best self for others, it’s actually something that benefits not just you, but everyone around you as well.
Tip #2: Commit to carving out time
Another important key to getting the most out of your self care practices and habits is consistency. Even if you only have five minutes to spare, we recommend making it a regular date and marking it on your calendar or your to-do list daily. Or it might also be helpful to pick one specific day each week or month to catch up on self care, and schedule your favorite activities accordingly.
Tip #3: Invest in tools that make it easy
For many people a deterrent to doing things like your skincare or beauty routine can be the chore of cleanup afterwards. For this reason, we recommend keeping tools and accessories on hand that streamline your process.
In fact, WristBrella™ Skincare Wristbands were created to help you do just that! Made with 100% double-sided terry cloth cotton, they’re the most absorbent and prevent the mess usually made by water running down your arms and going all over. WristBrellas make it easier than ever for men and women of all ages to indulge in more acts of self care - from shaving to applying face makeup and much, much more - without ever having to worry about cleaning up afterwards.
Tip #4: Make it a whole ritual
Even if you only have time for one or two self care activities here and there, something that can really uplevel your self care routine is to make it feel special. You can do this by adding elements that make it feel more like a ritual. Some good examples would be brewing a cup of your favorite tea, lighting a candle, putting on music, or some aromatherapy using a scented oil.
We also love adding some gua sha facial massage, or a nice moisturizing mask into the mix for showing your skin some extra love. For this, WristBrella Water Absorbent Skincare Wristbands are also the perfect complimentary accessory and can really enhance your experience, by making you feel like you stepped out of the everyday and into a luxury spa.
Tip #5: Embrace what works best for you
Last but not least, it’s worth noting that self care isn’t one-size-fits-all. And that’s okay! The most important thing is finding things you enjoy, and that make you feel energized. For some people it could be your evening skincare routine, but it could also be as simple as watching a favorite movie, meeting friends to do a little shopping, journaling, meditation, yoga, or even just putting on a podcast and going for a walk.
Whatever it looks like for you, WristBrella is here to support your wellness journey. We designed our products to be multi-purpose, reusable, and versatile for everyone. We can’t wait to hear how you put them to good use and build your own best self care routine!
