3 Self Care Practices that will add 1 Minute OR LESS  to Your Daily Routine
If you're anything like me, self-care can take a backseat between the responsibilities and obligations and never-ending to-do list. But, I've figured out some hacks for the days when it just seems like there is no time to squeeze in a moment for myself.  

Here's 3 of my favorite self-care hacks that will add 1 minute or less to your daily routine.

1. Turn Your Shower into a Spa

Usually, I get about 5 minutes in the morning to shower. Between getting the kids ready for school and my husband out the door, there’s barely enough time to scrub down. 

But I’ve learned to make the most of those 5 Glorious minutes by turning my shower into a SPA by dropping a few drops of essential oil on the walls. 

My favorite oil to do this with is Eucalyptus. The steam of the shower mixed with the scent of the oil turns my whole shower into a Fresh-Smelling, Invigorating, Dream. It’s Amazing. And it will make the tiny bit of time you get to wash yourself so much more Luxurious feeling!

2. Drink Your Water

Drink a Full Glass first thing in the morning. Prepare it the night before and leave it on your nightstand if you have to!

Most of us don’t get our daily water intake as it is, leaving our skin looking dull, making it harder to focus, and leaving us feeling sapped of our energy. 

One of the best things we can do to care for ourself is drinking adequate amounts of water, and one of the easiest ways to start our day off right is with a big ‘ol glass first thing in the morning!

3. Get Quiet

While You’re Getting Ready, When You’re In the Shower,  On Your Way to Work . . .

In today’s day and age we are going Constantly. There is so much noise, it can make it impossible to think. 

If you’re someone who doesn’t get a lot of peace and quiet, make it a priority to add it to your daily routine- whether that means taking a minute of silence before you turn on your phone in the morning, turning off the radio in the car, or keeping your shower time your quiet time. Prioritize a few minutes each morning to be in the quiet and hear your own thoughts.
