5 Tips for Taking Care of You

As women so many times we can get caught up in taking care of our loved ones and the people around us that we neglect taking care of ourselves and our needs. I think that can be a big mistake. If you don’t take better care of yourself and your health, then in the long run it can have a lot of effects on your mood, relationships, and physical health. We wanted to really focus on taking care of ourselves as women in this post, and share some of our tips and products that can really help you take care of you.

5 Tips for Taking Care of You

1.) Destress & create calm – Sometimes our lives get so hectic that it’s really hard to take the extra moment and create a calm environment for ourselves, and de stress. All of that stress can build up and cause problems physically and mentally. We recommend finding something you love to do that relaxes you and calms you. We also love this new Spire. Spire is a “trainer” for mindfulness& mindful living. It literally helps you create calmness in your life. It works almost like a pedometer except it tracks your breathing and stress levels, not just how many steps you take and calories burned like other activity trackers. You can attach it to your pants or your bra and wear it through the day. All of the information is synced with an app in your smart phone. Plus you can customize the app to alert you if you need to relax or get up and walk after a certin number of minutes. It will alert you when you are starting to get stressed, and walk you through breathing exercises and patterns. Plus the wireless charging station that comes with it is ultra cool looking. Spire is fully integrated into the Apple Health App and works with Apple watch. An Android App is also now available. You can also get $10 off when you purchase Spire at the following link. 

Sara actually gave the Spire a try over the last few days and found it to be really helpful. Her job can get stressful at times so the Spire helped her to remeber to stop and take a deep breath and relax so she could stay calm. She really loved it when it alerted her to get up and walk after awhile, so her legs didn’t get too stiff.

 2.) Take Care of Your Skin – Your skin is your first defense against germs and viruses, so it’s really important to take care of it. It’s especially important to start using moisturizers and eye creams like the Dermae when you’re younger before you have problems with your skin. If you wait until dryness, signs of aging etc to use moisturizers, they are less likely to be effective. We loved using the Dermae Firming DMAE Moisturizer and the Dermae Firming DMAE Eye Lift. They use natural ingredients to promote healthy, soft, and moisturized skin and fight visible signs of aging.To use the firming cream just apply a rich layer onto clean face and neck. Use in the morning and evening. Works well under makeup. It’s definitely ideal for those who are looking to visibly firm and lift the face or neck.

Sara loved the eye cream because it was super light and just soaked into her skin to keep her under eyes hydrated. Especially since they get dry in the cooler months. It’s easy to use as well. Just apply a pearl-sized amount to your ring finger and gently pat around your entire eye area. Works well under makeup.With continued use, this pro-collagen and pro-elastin blend leaves the delicate eye area firmer, smoother and younger-looking.

3.) Feed Your Hair – Feeding your hair might sound like a really weird tip, but it can be really important. We know that hair care doesn’t just start and end with shampoo & conditioner. It starts inside your body, with the food that you eat, and the vitamins they give. Taking hair, skin & nail vitamins (like biotin) can really help promote great hair from the inside out. It can also reduce any hair loss you may experience. Supplements like Viviscal Extra Strength can also help produce thicker fuller hair over time.  As the #1 Hair growth supplement on the market, Viviscal Extra Strength nourishes hair from the inside out with its scientifically formulated, exclusive and clinically proven marine complex, AminoMar®. 100% drug free, Viviscal Extra Strength promotes thicker, fuller hair and reduces hair shedding in women of all hair types. Viviscal should be taken twice a day (once in the morning, once at night) with food and water.Results can be seen after 3-6 months. Thereafter, users may reduce their intake to 1-2 tablets daily

 4.)Take care of your needs – It’s not talked about as often as it should be, but as a woman, you totally have needs – sexually. We definitely think that taking the time to think about your needs and what helps you be more intimate with your partner, or just have great sex drive in general. This Fiera for her is definitely a great option for couples. Fiera is used for a few minutes before sex to help get your mind and body ready for a physical, mental, and emotional connection with your partner. Fiera uses light stimulation and gentle suction to enhance blood flow, increase lubrication, and ultimately prepare the body for sex. Small, fast-acting and hands-free, Fiera is typically worn for 5-15 minutes and then removed in preparation for sexual activity. You can also Use code Babble for 10% off!

5.)Be Alone-Being alone is so important for your mental health. It’s easy to stay busy and distracted with taking care of everyone else, or your job. Even if you take 30 minutes out of the day to be alone and reflect on the positive things in your life, it can help you to stay calm and relaxed for the rest of the day.
