Confession time: Over the past year or so, our team has let certain self-care tasks fall by the wayside. Things like annual dermatologist appointments and physicals, teeth cleanings, and even fun stuff like pedicures. Can you relate?
It’s not surprising we pushed them to the backburner (hello, pandemic!), but now that things are starting to return to a more normal state, we’re realizing it’s time to play catch up.
Isn’t Friday a happy day indeed? Come Friday the feeling of excitement and possibilities fills the air. And when Saturday rolls around, we’re well into experiencing weekend bliss. 🙂 But have you ever noticed how that weekend energy tends to shift around Sunday afternoon?
While it should be a day to relax and do things that bring us joy, sometime after lunch many of us end up feeling anxious about the week to come.
Does it ever seem like your partner just can’t do anything right?
We’ve all felt it … Those little annoyances start to pile up, and poof! Pretty soon all we can do is zero in on the negatives. We get so caught up in all the “wrong” things they’re doing, that we aren’t able to notice any of the “right” stuff.
But chances are, you’re together with your partner for a reason and there’s a lot of love there.
When’s the last time you relaxed? Really, truly, relaxed (guilt-free!)?
Even when weekends roll around, it can be hard to allow ourselves to do nothing — especially when things are piling up on our to-do list. But this weekend, we want to encourage you to resist the urge to do anything other than relax.
Let’s kick-off Friday with one of our favorite mantras … “I am wonderful in all that I do.”
It’s an important thing to remind yourself of, and you should try saying it more often because no matter how much we accomplish in any day (or decade!), it’s easy to forget how amazing we are and instead, question our capabilities.
Some of us even battle with feeling like a fraud, or like luck has just been on our side and we don’t really deserve what we’ve achieved.
Remember when you were a kid and constantly learning new things? How to ride a bike, write in cursive, or tackle an algebra problem? There was that initial frustration at the challenge, but when you finally mastered the skill, you felt a boost in self-esteem and total satisfaction.
When’s the last time you experienced all the good feels that come with learning something new? While it’s easy to stick with our comfortable hobbies, learning is growing, and growing is life.
With Mother’s Day in the air, we here at Savvy Miss got to thinking about just how important it is we all mother ourselves. (Yes, men too!)
If this concept is new to you, let us explain …
To mother yourself is really to champion yourself. It’s to love the wonderful Y-O-U unconditionally, and care for and nurture your body, mind and soul. It also means to look out for and protect yourself — just like a mama bear does with her cubs.
Fresh flowers, birds chirping and warmer weather: There’s so much to love about spring! All the beauty that comes along with the season may make you want to go hiking, plan a picnic or even start a spring cleaning project. The only thing standing in your way? Finding the energy to do it all.
If you, (like so many of us!), have noticed a drop in your energy levels the past year, here are some of our favorite ways to kickstart your energy so you can get the most out of this glorious season.
Today, the world is celebrating one of our favorite things … books! That’s right, it’s officially World Book Day, and what better way to celebrate than by picking up a good book and spending some “Me Time” getting lost in inspiring, thrilling or comforting pages?
Looking for a new book to love? Here are a few of our favorites…
