“There are days I drop words of comfort on myself like falling leaves and remember that it is enough to be taken care of by myself.” - Brian Andreas

Practicing self-care is the key to enjoying good health all year around, and it’s a way to care for our mental and physical well-being. Here are some easy self-care ideas to consider:

Eat well — it’s easy to succumb to eating more sugar and carbs in winters. Strategically pick a few occasions where you go off your normal healthy eating plan if you’re ok with that (aka cheat day / meals) and eat healthy the rest of the month. This will prevent you from wondering how those extra 10 pounds appeared in June!

Laugh — don’t underestimate the benefits of a good laugh. Keep things light in your heart as much as you can, and find time for some humor. I personally enjoy watching old classics in the evenings, with their predictable plots and happy endings. It reminds me not to take things so seriously and gives my brain a rest.

Recognize the negatives —Remember that it’s ok to acknowledge that life is imperfect. We don’t have to feel happy about everything. Be gentle with yourself. Don’t judge yourself for having sad or anxious feelings. Recognize that they’re there, rather than trying to pretend the emotions don’t exist.

Stop comparing — It is really thief of all joy. We never really know what anyone else is going through or what their journey has been. Let others do their thing, and you do yours.

Drink water — when our schedules are busy, we sometimes forget to do obvious things like drinking enough water. If you’re feeling sluggish, it could be because you’re not hydrated. Make sure you regularly drink enough water, especially when the weather is dry and cold.

Exercise — whatever you normally do, keep doing it! Whether it’s a walk outside, yoga, or an intense workout, keep up with your routine even when the weather changes so that your body stays strong and your mind stays clear. And don’t forget the stress relief that exercise provides. It’s one of the best ways I know to beat stress!

Sleep — this one seems like a no brainer, but how many of us skimp on sleep just to fit in a few more things in the evenings? Make sure you get a little more sleep if your holidays were hectic and you didn't get enough shut eye so that your body has a chance to recover from the extra effort you’d putting in.

Take a time out  for yourself — do at least one thing each day to unplug and get away from the daily rut of life. Have a quiet cup of tea and enjoy it without multi-tasking. Escape for a few minutes to read a good book.


You can purchase via from the image above. Hover the cursor over the product to shop from CVS. 

One of my go-to activities that is skin care. I like using my down time to take care of my skin. It is like killing two birds with an arrow - skin care + self care. I love applying face masks and listening to music while I wait for it to dry. My recent favorite is Maxglow Peel off Mask. It is easy to use—simply apply, let dry, and gently peel off, with no need to rinse. It is gentle on skin and paraben-free, phthalate-free and non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores. And if time allow, I also incorporate the POSITIVELY RADIANT skin brightening daily scrub pre-mask and the POSITIVELY RADIANTSheer Daily Moisturizer post-mask 

The 
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Collection is designed to enhance your natural radiance and give you a lit-from-within glow. Each soy enriched product targets tone and texture.

You can shop all of the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Collection at your local CVS in the beauty section. As one of the largest beauty retailers in the United States, CVS Beauty makes being on-trend easier than ever. 



Self Care With Aveeno

Most of all, make sure you’re spending time with those you love each day. These little moments will help you feel more rested and keep your mind calm.

What will you do to foster your own self-care? Pick one thing from the list or add in your own ideas. Take 10 minutes out of your schedule and care for yourself every day. If you have some ideas about how to incorporate self-care into your routine around the holidays, please share in the comments below!

Now, excuse me while I clock in my workout. It is a cold winter day but I know I’ll feel better if I get some good endorphins out. That’s my self-care practice for today. See you next time!

  15. I honestly miss using Aveeno products so much. I'm super allergic to soy and oats which are in most all of their products - but my mom uses them religiously still! So good for your skin (if you're allergy-free haha). These are excellent self-care tips!
