Today was a day to relax and recoup after the last day of military drill. It wasn’t too bad of a drill, a lot of trainings and meetings, but nothing to bad. Afterwards I ran errands and started getting ready for the work week. Usually I’m working at my EMT job but that changes on drill days. It’s nice to have a little change of pace and enjoy my Sunday and get everything ready today instead. After drill and errands I did my plank, did a quick Yoga session, filled out my journal, ordered myself some food (which is a treat now) and sat down to watch WandaVision with Chris.
I hope everyone has a wonderful start of the week. Be safe, be happy and enjoy yourself!
If you are looking for a nice quick energized boost.

Well all my lovely people! Today is my “break” away from the civilian world. It’s time for another drill weekend. This is my time I usually get caught up with all military knowledge and training that I missed out on and catch up on some work that I haven’t been able to do. I hope everyone has a safe, fun and relaxing weekend!
Does “Self Care Sunday” Only Have To Be On Sunday?
The answer to that is simple. No. What “Self Care Sunday” is all about is taking a breath and realizing you need time for you. A tiny break from the craziness of the world to focus on your heart, health, soul and of course face masks! Self Care Sunday is generally known to be done on Sunday because it marks the end of a week for most of you. You can do these little “self cares” on any day that you have time, or feel that you need it. My goodness it could be on Thursday at eight o’clock if you’d want!
What I Do For My Self Care Day!
For my day, it generally has been falling on Sunday. Sometimes it will be the day after though it just depends on my schedule. I like to do this time with mom, because she could always use a break from my brother especially lol. We like to keep it simple, a yummy semi healthy dessert, maybe a fancy drink, face masks and one of her TV shows she likes to watch. Sometimes we involve dad too, but not yesterday. We used a charcoal face sheet mask, (I’ll have everything we used in a list for you), watched Dead Files, split a strawberry cheesecake, and did a warming olive oil treatment for our hair! It was super relaxing, fun and mom and I always love when we do things together. This helped kind of rejuvenate us for the upcoming week, a recharge for our batteries since were constantly going. This is exactly what its supposed to do, relax and recharge. It helps when you can enjoy it and not have to rush or anything.
Here’s just a small glimpse in my speedy yet relaxing and soothing Self Care Sunday. Every Self Care day is different. Sometimes I have to move the day because of my schedule. Just make sure you give yourself the time you need for you. You are number one, there is only one of you! Stay relaxed and mask up!

For all my night owls and beautiful souls. Here is a short yoga video that you can do before bed or when you’re time is sparse. This will aid your body in relaxing and soothe your soul. I ended up doing this before hopping into bed tonight. Enjoy 🙂
