Selfcare Tips: How To Pamper Yourself At Home

Pampering means to indulge and take care of yourself so you might feel better and renewed after the pampering. However, what constitutes pampering will differ from person to person. What one person loves to do after a long day might not hold any interest for someone else. In these unusually stressful and challenging times, many people have to do their pampering at home, which can limit some options. You may not be able to go to a spa day like normal, but there are other ways you can pamper yourself and practice self-care at home while keeping everyone safe during this pandemic. You have everything you need at home, or you can order special treats so you can pamper yourself properly and let go of some stress while following local health orders. Below are just a few tips, tricks, and suggestions you can use to practice self-care at home and indulge in some well-deserved pampering.

Benefits Of Pampering During Stressful Times


Some people may think that self-care and pampering are selfish, unnecessary, dramatic, and pointless, but these assumptions are wrong. Practicing self-care is a critical part of living a healthy life. Without self-care and some pampering, your mental, emotional, and physical health will deteriorate. Everyone needs a break sometimes, and self-care is all about taking a break to reduce stress. You can technically burn yourself at both ends and push for as long as you can without breaks, but you will pay the price when you finally stop and realize the damage that has been done. Even if you get enough sleep and eat a healthy diet, not stopping to deal with stress and recharge after a challenging event, you will damage your mental and emotional health along with warping your sense of normal exertion. Take the time to stop and run a bubble bath, watch your favorite movie, order your favorite comfort food, or anything else you like to do for self-care to keep yourself healthy in the long-term.

Makeover Fun

Millions of people have been asked to stay inside for almost a year to slow the spread of a pandemic virus, but that has put a damper on many people’s aspirations or motivations to revamp their look. Many people have given up on dressing up without a place to show off a fresh haircut, clean makeup look, or perfect outfit. However, just because you don’t have a place to go doesn’t mean you should put your ideas of revamping your look on hold. How you look should be for you, not other people. So now is arguably the perfect time to explore new styles and just have fun. Grab an old T-shirt and learn how to make tie-dye patterns with safe basic dyes, or go to a beauty store to buy professional-grade hair dye that will not ruin your hair like drugstore dyes will. Play with makeup, try new things, and just have fun in the moment, even if you don’t have somewhere to show off your hard work.

Clean Up The Clutter

Cleaning your home might not be the traditional definition of pampering, but the end result of cleaning your space is worth it. Living in an environment that is continuously messy and filled with clutter will drag down your mental state over time. We function better in orderly and clean homes, especially if we are going to be home most of the time. Instead of pushing a mess slightly further back or picking up one shirt from the floor, take the time to put on music and truly get your home clean. Cleaning out old items you no longer want, sweeping away the dust, and seeing the shine in surfaces again helps your brain refresh and let go of stress as well. Spending a day cleaning may not be fun, but you will look at your clutter-free house with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.

Sit Down And Do Nothing

It can be easy to feel like you must always be doing something, and what you are doing must have meaning and importance, but this is not true. Striving to be productive and finish tasks that matter is admirable, but it is not a healthy way to live 100% of the time. Aside from sleep, we need to take breaks where we do nothing. No checking emails, no doom scrolling, no worrying about possible future, and no fixating on the past, but just a break where you do nothing more than sit down and watch a good show. Everyone needs a time to do nothing and have it be ok as a type of self-care and pampering. Don’t push yourself until you collapse; sit down and recharge before you burn out entirely.

Pampering and self-care may have a negative connotation from people who do not understand the importance of taking breaks. Pampering yourself to mitigate stress and recharge improves your mental, emotional, and physical health. Don’t the current world current discourage you from having fun playing with your look and clothes. Clean up the clutter to refresh your house and take time to sit down and do nothing every once in a while.
