9 Stylish Ways to Lift Your Spirits
It has been a long, exhausting Spring and you’re certainly in need of some personal care. The best way to rejuvenate the soul is to spend some quality time with God, but sometimes a little pampering can help. Here’s nine fashionable activities to consider when you need a little pick-me-up:
Wear a cute floral dress on your self care day
Dressing up for no other reason than to feel pretty is a beautiful way to lift up your spirits. Every time you see yourself in a mirror, when you walk around with the soft fabric gracing your body, or when you recall the fresh, floral print or the effort you put into your outfit, you’ll be reminded of your exquisite beauty.
A true self care day involves cuddling up in cute, cozy pajamas
When your spirit is worn out and exhausted, the best way to pamper yourself can be to cuddle up in comfortable clothing. A cozy set of pajamas will do the trick. Perhaps a pajama day, a movie night in your pjs, or just relaxing all morning in bed while reading a good book.
Have a fitness self care day in workout clothes
The endorphins released from a workout definitely lift your spirits. Pull on a pair of leggings, a flattering tank and athletic shoes. Then get your heart pumping, or stretch your stress out – whatever you do, caring for your body is an awesome way to care for your weary spirit.
Journal in your favorite outfit for the ultimate summer self care day
Journaling is a great way to pray to God, jot down what you’re learning about Him or express your concerns to Him. But it’s also a helpful way to write out you’re going through and how you’re feeling. Sometimes it’s nice to write about your life to no one at all. Yes, God is always there for you, but in the mix of everything, it’s nice to freely express what’s on your mind. Dress in your favorite outfit, so you feel comfortable and pleased with your personal image.
Take a bath for a relaxing self care day
Put on your bathrobe, light some candles and draw yourself a warm, relaxing bath. Just sit and soak. Let the stress of life just melt away. Choose bath products or candles with a rejuvenating scent. Give into the warmth and the cleansing water. Then lather yourself with a soothing lotion or moisturizing balm.
Give yourself a spa self care day
At home spa treatments can be an invigorating way to treat yourself. You can give yourself a little massage by using various massage tools, or even balls and other items just laying around the house. Give yourself a manicure, pedicure and facial.
Invest in a media self care day
Binge watching your favorite TV series may seem like a great way to pamper yourself, but they’re a big time suck, so you don’t need to continue along that vain. But, most media is made to help you relax, so plan a day where you read through a good book in the morning, listen to some of your favorite worship music in the afternoon and watch a redemptive film at night. Enjoy all this media in a comfortable, yet fashionable outfit. You want to be cozy without looking like a slob.
Put on fancy jewelry
Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference. Add some rich or sparkling jewelry to dazzle your look and your life. By wearing an expensive-looking or elaborate piece of jewelry, you’ll remind yourself of how priceless you are. Even if you’re wearing sweats or jeans and a t-shirt, a cute heart, sparkling sapphires or glistening gold jewelry can make you feel cute.
Play around with makeup
Discover a new makeup look, or several, to compliment your character and personality. By spending a day giving yourself a makeover, you may discover new techniques, colors or products that fit you well.
