5 Essential Wellness Items for Your Journey to Self-Care

For so many of us, as children of immigrants or de segunda generación, it’s easy to put so much on our plate or often put others ahead of ourselves. But taking care of your well-being is crucial for living a balanced and fulfilling life. As the saying goes, ​​"You can't pour from an empty cup." And you don't need to do too much or break the bank to take care of yourself more. There are trending wellness products and practices that you can instantly start now that will enhance your self-care routine, which surprisingly can include makeup. Si, makeup.

 Let's dive into some of them and discover some essential items to incorporate into your daily routine.

Wellness Tip #1

Incorporate mindfulness into your wellness journey with meditation apps like Headspace or Calm. These apps provide guided meditations, breathing exercises, and techniques to promote relaxation and reduce stress. There are also free meditations on YouTube if you want something more easily accessible (but a reminder that unless you have YouTube Premium, you can deal with commercial breaks).

Wellness Tip #2

Harness the power of aromatherapy with essential oils in your wellness journey. Brands like Vitruvi and Saje offer a variety of oils to create a serene environment. Use a diffuser to disperse the scents, promoting relaxation and improving mood.

Wellness Tip #3

Elevate your workout routine, which does serve as self-care, with fitness accessories like resistance bands, yoga mats, and foam rollers. These items can enhance your exercise experience, improve flexibility, and aid muscle recovery.

wellness tip #4

Pamper yourself with the skincare and makeup products you already own. For example, take your time swiping on some of LUNA MAGIC's eyeshadows from the Goddess Shadow Palette. Applying eyeshadow requires concentration and attention to detail — and choosing different colors and experimenting with various eye looks allows you to discover or express your creativity and personal style. Consider it like the liberation felt with painting.

Wellness tip #5

Dedicate time each day, even if it's just 5 minutes, to reflect and express gratitude. Use journals like The Five Minute Journal or the Happiness Planner to cultivate positive habits, set intenciones, and celebrate small victories.
