2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Tell us your solo relaxation tips!

2022 Self-Care Check-In Challenge2022 Self-Care Check-In Challenge

 

Welcome to 2022, Beauty Insider Community! At this point, the importance of “self-care” is talked about so often that it sometimes almost feels like a chore. Which totally defeats the purpose, right? Self-care is important, but it’s meant to be restorative and enjoyable. 🧖‍♀️ That’s why we’re reviving our Self-Care Check-in Challenge, this time with weekly inspiration for themed rituals and beauty resolutions to incorporate into your own self-care routines.

 

Check back weekly and let us know in the replies: How are you committing to the self-care theme of the week? Share your tips and tricks, or just get motivated by others (you can even check out @haleyvvvv's 2022 Beauty Resolutions/Goals  thread for more inspirational beauty resolutions to kick-start your new year)! And if a certain theme doesn’t speak to your personal self-care needs, skip it! But don’t forget to stop by to cheer on your fellow BIC-ers. 📣

 

  • Week 1 (1/5 – 1/11) – Getting active (…and if contouring is your cardio, that’s cool too!) 🏅
  • Week 2 (1/12 – 1/18) – Taking care of your hair 💇‍
  • Week 3 (1/19 – 1/25) – Improving your sleep routine 😴
  • Week 4 (1/26 – 2/1) – Trying a new wellness trend (supplements, CBD, gua sha, oh my!) 🔮
  • Week 5 (2/2 – 2/8) – Staying organized and productive 📚
  • Week 6 (2/9 – 2/15) – Setting a skincare goal for 2022 😚
  • Week 7 (2/16 – 2/22) – Meditating and mindset 🧘🏼‍
  • Week 8 (2/23 – 3/1) – Relaxing solo (how do you like to unwind when you get a minute to yourself?) 💆🏻‍

@faeriegirl What kind of CBD gummies do you take?

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@greeneyedgirl107  I get them online from JustCBDStore . Com . The peach rings are my favorite.

@faeriegirl Good to know.  I frequently have abdominal discomfort/pain from my gastroparesis.  Would be worth looking into.

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@faeriegirl - I've not heard of these.  This is interesting to know as I have IBS too.

@TeamBIC this year kicked off with some major workplace headaches which become quite literal so I've been using my SEPHORA COLLECTION Metal Facial Cooling Globes to help out with the tension I can get in my temples and also my neck (they do a great job on the back of my neck. I know it's not advertised to use it like that but it does help). On a side note when I feel like I'm getting to the point of feeling like I'm going to hit the roof (I'm sure everyone knows what I'm talking about) I turn on YouTube videos of Gordan Ramsey yelling at people. I know it's weird but seeing him yell at people that deserve it brings me peace lol.

I am consciously putting effort to remember taking supplements at bedtime and having a nice relaxing at home spa session on weekends. 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

A new-ish trend I am trying is, Skincare with CBD.  I did not get any benefits with Perricone MD CBD products but I bought Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion for my chest area and underboobs. They have been really itchy and my chest area is inflamed with redness. My regular Aveeno oil moisturizer was not doing it. With Lord Jones, I have noticed sugnificantly less itching.

 

I do not like these body changes I am undergoing as I never had to worry about moisturizing after a shower. 😔 Im glad its working but I dont know if I would re-purchase. 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

I only drink wine once a week (and only a max of two glasses, if that).  BUT, I think if I give it up then my sleep cycle will be better on the weekend.  SO, I'm trying to be mindful of that.  Only one glass of wine tonight, so it's a start!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

Not exactly a "new trend" but I'm a Christian and over the years I haven't always been as good about taking time for daily devotions as I should have been but for the last couple of months I've been setting aside at least 5-10 minutes every morning even if it's just reading a little bit from my Bible or an inspirational devotional book.  Later I try to look back and remember what I read about; it's making me focus more on my priorities and it's very calming/soul-soothing so it's really benefiting my spiritual and emotional health.

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

I don’t want to scare anyone but please consult your physician before starting any supplements because it may cause more harm to unknown condition that you may have. 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

For me this year I am really starting to prioritize myself and my own boundaries. I started using a 6 minute journal this year as well. Which i think is really a newer trend. I find it helps me be a little more grateful and think of the positive in all situations. This year is a little different for me because since my husband is in the military and we could be looking at being posted this summer and that adds a whole new level of stress during the pandemic. This journal has really helped me be able to ground myself. I also started using a legend planner. Which helps me set goals and track habits and keep everything in my life organized. Literally the best planner i have ever used.

@ather that's a really good habit!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@CookieGirl1  Thanks. It seems to be helping me stay positive!!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@ather I love how you have a tropical picture on your laptop! Especially since I recall you have moose in your yard sometimes! 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@CarolBT  Yes we have lots of wild animals where I am!!! I need to have a tropical background because we are getting super cold weather again soon. -38 brrr 🥶 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@ather  I wonder if Legend planners are available in the US.  I could really use something like that.  I hope you get posted in a place that you all love, although I understand the stress.

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@Ispend2much6  I got mine on Amazon. I learned about it from one of my colleagues. I love it. It’s so good. It was expensive but worth it. I noticed the price was higher now than when I got mine I wondered because it is January and maybe if you get it in March it might be cheaper. But you write in the days so you can really start it whenever you want. I think I got mine in august maybe.

Week 4: trying to take my vitamins and minerals pills as well as sugarbear hair vitamins. Working out in the morning. Doing my 1min breathing wellness through my Apple watch.
 I am also starting again to take my Moon juice stress management pills.

@Nozz  Wow great job!!! I also love the moon juice super you supplement!!!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Try a new wellness trend and tell us all about it!

@Nozz I really like the moon juice supplements as well! They are very relaxing and I am happy to see them dive into sustainable packaging

I started taking selenium a couple of months ago, along with a very potent vitamin B complex.  It's done wonders for my hair.  I just got it cut (a little bit) a couple of days ago, for the first time in 15 months.  Those first 12 months it really hadn't grown much at all.  Here it is (after using Deva Curl products for the first time.) My hair had reached about 9 inches below my shoulders!

I also have been using HUM Nutrition Private Party™: Supports Vaginal & Urinary Tract Health .  It lives up to its promises, and even makes my skin more clear.
