It’s easy to get swept up in the hectic pace of life, leaving your self-care routines behind. We get it – taking time for yourself can feel like an impossible task sometimes. Making time for you is essential not only for your own physical and emotional well-being, but for your sense of balance and ability to spread positivity to those around you!
We’ve compiled eight of our favorite ways to refresh and reset. Everyone has a different definition of “self-care”, so don’t feel like you need an extravagant spa day to adequately recharge. From a few-minute meditation to an early bedtime, follow our tips to make self-care a priority in your life, starting right now!
1. Marula Massage
Give yourself a 10-minute hand and foot massage with our Marula Oil, focusing on reflexology points. If you fancy a trip to the nail salon, bring a bottle of Marula Oil with you and ask your nail technician to incorporate it into your treatment.

2. Call Someone You Love
If you’ve been meaning to catch up with an old friend or a relative, take 10 minutes (or an hour) to call them and reconnect. It’s amazing what a phone call to someone you care about can do to lift your spirit!
3. Listen to a Podcast
This goes without saying, but we love listening to a good podcast. Whether you’re a fan of cooking, true crime, or hair wellness, there’s a podcast match for everyone. Disconnect from technology (other than the device playing the podcast, of course). Just sit and listen.
4. Do a Lash and Brow Treatment with VEGAMOUR products
If you don’t have time in your schedule to get your brows and lashes done at a salon (or budget), opt for an easy, cost-effective and safer alternative and make vegaLASH, vegaBROW Volumizing Serum and our other hair serums part of your beauty routine. The safe and effective formulas are non-carcinogenic and do not contain hormones - score!
5. Cook or Bake
If you’ve been craving your favorite pasta or brownies, now is the time to indulge and treat yourself! Instead of worrying about what everyone else will eat for dinner, take the liberty of making something that will your nourish your body and satisfy your taste buds. Bon appetit!
6. Take a Nap Without an Alarm Clock
Now this is how you do self-care. Change out of your jeans and into your coziest pajamas and take a nap… for as long as you want! Rub a few drops of Pure Marula Oil in Bergamot into your temples for a soothing scent, play some quiet music, and enjoy the zen you deserve.
7. Unplug from Email and Social Media for a Day
If you can’t afford a technology break for an entire day, try unplugging for a least an hour. It’s so easy to become inundated with the constant stream of updates on the web, but it’s vital to take a break every now and then. Trust us, your well-being will thank you.
8. Take a Walk Around Your Neighborhood
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a stroll around your neighborhood while savoring in the sights, smells and sounds of your neighborhood.
Every new season is a chance to take a step back and refresh your perspective on life, love, and happiness. Self-care comes in many forms, so find something that works for you and make time for yourself. It’s so easy to get caught up in worrying about everyone else and forget to make yourself a priority. If you put yourself first, everything else in your life will follow.
