Self care Sunday // 004


It has been forever ( while a couple of months ) since I was able to do a self care post, which says a lot. I have literally not stopped, not that I am complaining it has been exciting and I’ve been working hard on this little blog but now I’ve hit a brick wall. I’m incredibly exhausted and needed some rest immediately.


So this week I climbed into bed super early ( 6pm ) wearing my favourite pjs, wrapped myself up in my favourite fluffy blanket, lit the sweetest smelling candle and snuggled down deep with my book, only coming up for a big spoonful of ice cream. I read for absolute hours getting lost in the court of Queen Mary, eventually falling into the deepest of sleeps (apparently I kept Jamie awake most of the night with my crazy sleep rambling ). I can’t tell you the last time I slept so well, I woke up feeling refreshed, relaxed and most importantly with a new excited energy. I climbed into bed so mentally and physically tired, I had such a low energy but in less then 12 hours I jumped out feeling like a new person. I am such a firm believer in looking after your mental health as much you do your physical health, after all your brain is just an organ and needs just as much care as the others. I will definitely be making more of a effort to self care more regularly from now on I certainly don’t want to end up being so exhausted again, no point working my parse off in the gym if my insides are falling apart.

Happy Sunday

    Good for you Emma! I sounds like your body, and your brain, really need the ‘you time’. Does Jamie return soon from his fishing trip? I know you’ve been missing him a lot, even if having the bed to yourself for a little while has been rather nice 🙂

    Recently I’ve been trying to do a self-care Sunday each week, and I do think it helps. To be honest, most days I really don’t feel like doing anything nice for myself, either because I feel like I don’t deserve it or I just don’t have the energy, but on a Sunday I try to force myself to do something like a bit of pampering, and I think it does make me feel a bit more relaxed. Definitely agree with you about working on our mental health as much as our physical 🙂
