It is time for some #realtalk, Sugar.
Are you taking care of yourself? Seriously. Beyond the day-to-day stayin’ alive routine. What are you doing to invest in yourself? We know, we know. #Selfcare is a trendy topic. It is broad and encompasses many, many different versions. Self-care is not a one-size-fits-all prescription, but the idea behind it is! And despite popular opinion, Sugar, self-care is far from selfish…
At Sugar + Spruce, we believe self-care is about being sweet to yourself, so that you can be sweet to others. It is about replenishing the bath tub and keeping it full, so it doesn’t drain out. (Metaphorically speaking in Sugar + Spruce terminology.)
Stress is inevitable, Sugar. Ignoring your every day needs and letting stress take its toll has some dangerous side effects! For starters, it compromises your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to the common cold! It takes an emotional toll, affecting your every day mood and productivity. Self-care plays a preventative role in so many ways. It is proven to strengthen your immune system, lift your mood, and boost productivity. Less sick people, more positive and contagious energy, more jobs done. Now, can someone please tell us what is selfish about that?!
May we recommend our favorite self-care routine? Bath time. No surprise there, Sugar. But even just a 15 minute bath time to start the day or end the day is all it takes for us. Start with just one day, Sugar! Add a Sugar + Spruce Lavender Fields Bath Bomb for extra calm-inducing scents! Give yourself a little extra TLC by loving on your skin with one of our luxury body creams! We love the sweet smell of our Cocoa Butter Cream!
Like we said, self-care comes in many shapes and sizes. But at Sugar + Spruce, we find our bath time treats do just the trick!
