The term Self Care Sunday has been steadily trending over the past few years. It’s rare to scroll through Instagram on a Sunday without seeing #SelfCareSunday and it’s for good reason. As the world continues to get busier and more chaotic the need for self care is more important than ever. The SouthShore Fine Linens team believes that the key to a successful week is making time for yourself and a little self care, so we decided to dive in and give you all the info on Self Care Sunday and how you can start your week off right. 

What is Self Care Sunday? 

Self Care Sunday is the practice of implementing a self care routine to take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health. Hectic work schedules and other responsibilities tend to pile on over the week. What better day than Sunday to slow down, remember to breathe and make time for yourself. Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup!

Make Time For Sleep 

According to the CDC, 1 in 3 American’s are not getting enough sleep. Start your Self Care Sunday off right by clearing your schedule and sleeping in. Getting adequate sleep is a proven way to help your body recover and helps to prevent many chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and stress. The key is to make sure you are getting a quality night’s sleep. At SouthShore Fine Linens we pride ourselves on developing the softest bedding at the best price.

Curl Up With a Good Book 

How long has that book you’ve been wanting to read been getting dusty on your bookshelf? Busy schedules, commitments, and obligations tend to have most of us running on full speed during the week. A great way to practice self care is to slow down and get lost in a book. According to a study in 2009 at the University of Sussex, reading has been shown to reduce stress up to 68%. So go on, pick up your favorite book and forget about everything else.

 

Nature

 

Make Time For Nature

Get outside and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Breathing some fresh air and moving your body is an incredible way to practice self care. Take a stroll around the block, plan a picnic or if you’re feeling ambitious go for a hike. No matter what you do, you’re sure to feel rested and rejuvenated after spending some time out in mother nature.

 

Bath

 

Take an Extra Long Bath 

Did you know that it is scientifically proven that a warm bath can help reduce inflammation and even lower your blood sugar according to Healthline. What better way to practice self care than taking an extra long bath? Elevate your bathing experience with your favorite candle, dim lights, best playlist and luxurious ultra-plush towels.

 

Unplug

 

Unplug and Recharge

Social media and the feeling of needing to constantly check emails has been linked to feelings of loneliness, jealousy, depression, and dissatisfaction. Why not take a day to unplug from it all and focus on your mental health? With so much going on in the world, what better way to show yourself love and self care than by unplugging and spending the day being completely present with the people you love most.
