At Home Self Care
Since we all are spending more time at home, this is a great chance to get some self-care and beauty routines in place. Time is always something we say we need more time of and now we have it. Try one or all of these suggestions:
1. DIY Mask
For glowing skin mix together 2 tablespoons of yogurt and 2 tablespoons of lemon. Do a patch of skin to test, make sure you are not sensitive to break out. Let the mask sit on your face for 5 minutes and rinse. Continue with your normal daily skin routine. If you are doing face masques I would not over do them. Try it once a week.
2. Plan it out
Utilize this time to plan out some healthier meal options to keep your mind, body and soul healthy. Use free platforms such as Pinterest to search for meals no matter your dietary restrictions. Whether you are keto, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, high carb - whatever it is, they have a ton of meal ideas and recipes that you can simplely pin and plan your meals for the week!
3. Get Moving
Gyms are closed but don’t let that keep you from executing your health goals. There are a ton of online platforms with workouts to keep you accountable. Curvy Cardio has a great at home program that has daily challenges, meal ideas, live workouts and more in a private support group for only $15 a month! Interested in joining?

4. Stock up on Vitamins
I’ve started incorporating taking apple cider vinegar gummies from a brand called Goli three times a day. These replace taking ACV shots that honestly, I could not stand the taste or ‘burning’ feeling when ingested. These gummies have also helped with my digestion, my energy level and immune system. They are vegan and 100% organic. If you want to try them visit www.goli.com and use my code ‘miss_morgan86’ for a special discount!
5. Online Shopping
I know a lot of us do this anyway, but take advantage of the deals and discounts retailers are rolling out right now due to a lot of stores closing temporarily. On top of saving, you can also earn money back. You heard me right, you can get cash back on your online purchases. I utilize a site called Ebates, it has hundreds of you favorite online and in store retailers with cash back ranging from 2%-15% cash-back. The service is completely free, all you have to do is click on the website you want to shop at though Ebates and thats it - you get a check in the mail every 3-4 months.

I’ve been using this time to workout more (I’m trying to lose 20 lbs), meditate, and update my 5 year plan and vision board. I may have to try those apple cider gummies because I’ve been doing the shot of apple cider vinegar and I’ve been hating it lol

This is the perfect time to indulge in self care! I’ve been taking several different vitamins, trying new products for my skin, and of course shopping! I have been slacking on working out but I have been eating healthier. I’m looking forward to adding more things to my self care routine.

Plan it out is exactly what I need to do. I should incorporate this into my schedule. A yogurt mask sounds yummy!

Thank you for your advice on the DIY mask. I will definitely include that in my skin care regimen. Also, I love that you talk about digestive health in this piece. It is so important that we keep our gut happy and healthy 😍

Thank you for these self care suggestions. I believe several of the above are long overdue. Definitely going to make a mask (yogurt how easy!) and do a little online shopping this weekend

I need to get myself moving again. I've slacked on working out 🤦🏾♀️ but I will be getting back to it soon. This has been a hard time especially adding homeschool teacher to my resume lol. Thanks for the tips.

Girl!! I am here for all of this. I love self-care especially now that I am more into this mindfulness and wellness space. Thanks for fresh tips!

I've finally got the time to spend on myself and I'm trying so hard to use it. At home work outs, face masks, at home pedis... things I never had time for before. We throw around the word self care, but there's nothing like truly taking care of self.
