Shop Self Care with Afterpay
Selfcare has become a buzzword in recent times, but here at Afterpay we think it’s unbelievably important to take those little moments to relax and indulge. Many people aren’t really sure what selfcare is, and that’s a great question because really, it’s different for everyone.
The considerate team here at Afterpay have put together a list of suggestions where you can stock up on items that encourage well-deserved pampering and relaxation.
Exercising can clear your mind and get those endorphins pumping, so investing in equipment such as a simple skipping rope or a few hand weights for home will mean you can get an efficient and effective workout in. Many people look to more calm exercise options, such as pilates and yoga, so roll out your mat and get your stretchy pants on so you can breathe and stretch comfortably.
A quiet bubble bath with a few scented candles and bath salts to soothe and relax aching muscles will give you calm and peace of mind. Stretch out and let the hot water soak away the stress of the day. Don’t forget to have a clean fluffy towel to welcome you when you step out of the tub.
Preparing your bed with fresh linen is a little luxury that everyone can afford. Snuggling down in bed for a night of good rest is the definition of self care. Curl up with a good book, or some chilled out music or even a guided meditation or podcast and just let the distractions fade away.
Most importantly, selfcare is about making time to decompress and breathe, appreciating the present and being grateful. A good way of recording this is with a gratitude journal. Pick up a notebook and list a few things every evening or morning that you are grateful for.
