TIP 4: EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST


It's "too" a.m. for me


Self-Care Isn't Selfish. Don't Feel Guilty For Taking Some YOU Time. YOU Matter And Are Important! Check out elleash.blog for more SELF CARE TIPS.

Hands up those of you who are big breakfast eaters?

Personally, I wasn't one until I started working a full-time job.

I realized that I couldn't just take a break when I wanted and have a snack, like I would normally if I were at home, or when I was still in college! 

So, I started waking up a little earlier and taking the time to have a good hearty breakfast. 

It wasn't always the most healthy, but I did try to have slow carbs that would sustain me at least until my lunch break!

In these times of isolation, it kinda always seem like the WE right?

I mean, our days kinda just follow the previous one, and if you are used to working from home, then you normally have your routine figured out.

But for those that are still fumbling around with the notion, that it really is okay to stay in your PJs and continue to feel empowered, you may need to recalibrate which day it is!

In order to ensure your weekend stays the weekend, you need to have little rituals.⁠

One of my favorite luxuries on some weekends, is to be able to ave a yummy breakfast in bed!

Does that sound good or what?

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not take the luxury of eating it in bed? I'm all for it! 

Now, my ideal breakfast would be:⁠ ⁠

☕A strong coffee⁠

🥞A stack of fresh, fluffy pancakes with maple syrup drizzled on top⁠

🍓Freshly picked strawberries⁠

📰Newspaper⁠ ⁠

And all this with the cutest 5 year old ever trying to get to my stack of fresh, fluffy pancakes and a handsome hubby trying to steal my paper!⁠

TIP 5: PLAN A FULL WEEK OF YUMMY MEALS


I can't turn water into wine,

but I can turn pizza into breakfast

Wish you could turn water in wine?⁠ ⁠Yeah - me too. 

Alas, no matter how hard I try, I just can't.

So, let's try and not get ahead of ourselves with that unresolved dilemma, and let's concentrate on something that will guarantee us feeling good about ourselves and oh-so-productive!!

Sunday is usually our laze-around day. That said, it is usually also when I actually try and be productive and it definitely helps me get through another week!⁠ 

How is this related to self-care you sigh?? Weeeeeell ...

⁠We know from the previous self-care tips, that it is all about doing things that make you feel good and happy, and meal-prepping is definitely one of those tips that has saved our sorry-A more than once!⁠

And what is even cooler is that meal prepping doesn't have to be a chore!!

With awesome YT channels on the web, you can follow along and get great meal ideas for the week.⁠

If meal prepping freaks you out, then how about starting really slow? 

How about just trying out one meal per day, then moving on to two, etc ...⁠ ⁠

Once you get the hang of it, it's SO refreshing to just open your fridge or freezer and heat up some true goodness and yumminess.⁠

TIP 6: LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Self-Care Isn't Selfish. Don't Feel Guilty For Taking Some YOU Time. YOU Matter And Are Important! Check out elleash.blog for more SELF CARE TIPS.


In this time of isolation, we may have some more time on our hands, and it's the perfect time for a little more self-care. right?⁠

Learning is the key to opening our eyes to greatness and elevate ourselves to improve on what we already know. ⁠ ⁠

Why not try out a MasterClass?? I mean who hasn't ever wanted Alicia Keys to teach us songwriting? Or what about learning how to sketch and doodle?? MasterClass is currently offering an awesome BOGOF (Buy One Get One Free) deal. I highly recommend taking RuPaul's MasterClass - he will teach you how to truly be your most authentic self!!

Starting from scratch, evolving & mastering something is one the keys to being a Badass Boss, Super Mama and all time KA Woman!⁠ ⁠

Oftentimes we associate self-care with something that can be materialized, slapped onto our face or look shiny & pretty.⁠ ⁠ Yet self-care can also be non-tangible and equally as delightful. ⁠ ⁠

Learning is one of those non-tangible delights.⁠

Don't get me wrong, I love masking like any other girl or guy, however, and I blame my training for this (lol), I love being creative with my mind.

Nevertheless, don't get sucked into the spiral of learning a whole plethora of things, because you have this extra time on your hands! 

Don't forget that the mind does need to rest, and if you just inundate it with too many things, it will shut down.

So baby steps y'all!

TIP 7: WRITE IN YOUR JOURNAL EVERYDAY


People write because nobody listens


In Paris, France, this is the start of our 4th isolation week. 

It's hard, especially when we keep hearing about the rise of victims and the hardships many families are facing ...

However, in order to try and create some positive moments in my days, one of the things I always try to do, is write in my journal. ⁠ 

I love this form of self-care, as it truly is something that you do for yourself, with yourself and by yourself!⁠ 

You can vent all that you need to, write out your thoughts, wants & desires.

Writing is a great stress-reliever, motivator and sets your intentions for the day. 

I have had a journal since my 13th birthday.

My Dad brought me one back from one of his trips overseas. I can still see it see the cover, feel the softness of its pages and smell the newness of it.

I have tried to write in all the journals I have owned. I'm not going to lie to you and make you believe that I have written in my journals, every single day. Because that's just not the truth.

There are days when I feel pretty dang great, so I kinda forgo writing in my journal, even though I really ought to share my good days too!

I often tend to go to my journal, like I would wear my favorite pair of jeans, because I know they fit like a glove, or eat chicken noodle soup because it reminds me of my Mom - which in turn makes me feel safe.

That is exactly what my journal is to me. A safety blanket. The idea that it's there, acts as a confidante, and never judges my words or actions described in it, is one of comfort.

I highly recommend using the current world situation, and start writing your thoughts down.

If you are starting your journey with journaling, then welcome! And if you have stopped and taking it back up, then congratulations!

The best form of self care is one that will make you feel amazing - and I really believe that writing away our heavy heart will do just that.

MY FAVORITE JOURNALS THAT I HAVE USED & STILL USE:



Minimalism Art, Premium Hard Cover Notebook Journal

This is a lovely replacement for my MOO notebooks.

The paper is super soft yet thick enough for any bleeding to appear - especially if you enjoy writing with inkier pens.

Of course, if you want to use brush pens or thicker pens, the ink will be seen on the other page, but that's normal!

If you want a good, yet inexpensive journal to write in everyday, then this is definitely a go-to!

They have super pretty colors, yet I have chosen the light purple one - even if it is called pink on Amazon.

Paperage Lined Journal Notebook, Hard Cover


This journal is a little different to the ones I have used, as it is a lined one.

I like the dotted pages because I enjoy doodling and bullet journaling, but this one has served me well, if just wanting to write and not sketch in it.

The cover is super soft, made out of vegan leather.

The pages are also soft and thick, so great for all that writing!
