I don’t know about you, but pampering can mean different things to me on different days. Tonight for example, I’m going to need a long, hot candlelit bath and a massage as my fibro is playing up and I’m aching even though I’m only halfway through the day. No such luck on the massage though as the Mr is away
Other days, pampering myself could just mean taking an hour out of my day to curl up with a blanket or sit in the sun (if only we had sun), and lose myself in a good book.
I’m not one for facials or pedis but I always feel much better after getting my hair done or painting my nails.
I think though that pampering should be less seen as ‘spoiling’ ourselves and more as taking time to look after ourselves, both physically and mentally. Granted not many of us get to do this as often as we’d like or really should, but maybe we should be prioritising our pamper time, even if it is only half an hour once or twice a week. Everyone needs time to sit down, take a deep breath and relax in order to restock and cope with the demands of busy lives. Who knows, just 15 minutes of this a day could save both ours and our family’s sanity! 😉
