“Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility. It’s about listening to the needs of your soul and then honoring them.” – Kristi Ling
It has been a challenging year. Everyone could use a little more self-care this season. Remind your friends and family to take extra care and treat themselves well. It’s never too late to take care of ourselves a little better, and these 9 Thoughtful Self-Care Gifts are a great place to start.
You already know that positive self-care is essential for improving your energy and your health. With the uncertainty, frustration and stress associated with these times, taking that extra 15-20 minutes to relax and unwind is incredibly important.
As we are all unique, self-care may look a little different from one person to another. With that in mind, we’ve gathered a variety of our favorite self-care gifts. Consider these items as you shop not just for the holidays, but for birthdays, anniversaries, thank-you’s and everyday occasions. Encouraging others to practice self-care is an easy way to show how much you care.
Headphones – A great pair of noise-cancelling headphones can drown out the chaos, allowing the recipient to relax and enjoy their favorite podcast or music. Speaking of which, did you know that most holiday music is infused with vibrations at the ideal energetic healing frequency—528 hz?
Teapot – Remind them to unwind at the start and finish of each day by gifting a beautiful teapot. You could also include a few soothing herbal blends or splurge on an organic blooming tea.
Epsom Salts – Self-care gifts don’t have to be expensive. Bath salts, for example, are one our favorite things to gift or receive. There’s nothing like the benefits of soaking it up in an Epsom salt bath. These salts offer a comforting and relaxing way help ease stress and strain.
Meditation Cushion – Perfect as a seat or floor cushion for a peaceful and relaxing meditation or yoga practice. A Meditation Cushion is designed for maximum comfort for checking in with Self, and asking What’s Up? in Rose's special meditation practice.
Pajamas – Speaking of comfort, why not treat your loved ones to a pair of soft flannel or fleece pajamas. Not only will they feel warm and cozy, but they will encourage relaxation and a great night’s sleep. Sleep is so essential to good health.
Journal – Journaling has tremendous benefits for mental health, wellbeing, and even productivity. It is a great way to process uncertainty. Plus, it provides a special place for recording goals and intentions.
Reflexology Foot Massage – Feet are so important to wellness and mobility, bearing the weight of your whole body. Yet they are also one of the most neglected body parts. Reflexology massage keeps feet strong and flexible while clearing blocked energy channels. Purchase a gift-certificate for a one-time session or a guide book for long-term self-care.
Organic Farm Share – This is a very unique gift, but also helpful, nutritious and wholesome. Many organic farms now offer annual shares. Gift a family member a monthly (or one-time) delivery of some of the freshest organic, local produce.
Lotion – Give a nice luxurious hand or body lotion like BeautyCounter’s Melting Body Balm to nourish healthy skin. Having great products on hand makes self-care more enjoyable. And it is really nice to gift something they maybe wouldn’t indulge in themselves. When in doubt, share one of your own special favorites.
Show how much you care by giving self-care gifts this year, and be sure to practice some yourself as well! For more on self-care, consider scheduling a phone consultation with Rose.
