Self Care: College Students
Working 70 hour work weeks and being in school full time leaves little to no time for self-care. I have got to say, I cannot get off my couch when I finally catch a break. Lately, I’ve been trying to establish a schedule, something that’s easy to manage as well as remember.
I’ve always been a list type of person, thanks to my mother. I do things that I write down. I also am curious, so reading things about how to have better self-care is important to me! Many articles are aimed toward college students such as myself.
Drink more water!
Everyday in my house there is something going on or someone not home. Yet Hannah and I have settled in to a routine, we both open at our work places now. Being up early in the morning is tough on the body. We now have water bottles specifically for water. As well as a nightly routine to maintain our skin from looking like we only sleep 4 hours a night.
With having sensitive skin face washes never really worked for me. Until I found an unscented organic kind by Burt’s Bee’s which was truly a life saver. Another thing I have become obsessed with is rosewater facial spray. It does exactly what it says and leaves my skin so silky!
Mist that takes self-care to a whole new level
Self-care we don’t think about
Many women in our age range work in food services. Meaning absolutely no nail polish at all. Therefore why on earth would I ever even look at my nails?! Lately, I’ve been doing weekly nail treatments to improve the way my natural nails look. As well as hair masks and leave-in’s to help maintain my frizzy hair.
Lotions are an awesome way of self-care, yet I can’t ever find the one that doesn’t irritate my skin. Unscented lotion is normally my go-to considering they don’t make me break out in hives. All in all its a matter of finding what works for you and making sure it doesn’t cost 80 dollars. As mentioned before in college students night in, candles as well as wine are essential to self care.
