How to Look and Feel Your Best: Because You Deserve It

In this chaotic day and age when we feel like those hamsters on a running wheel most of the time, it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves. Going to work, helping kids with homework, cleaning the house, running errands and all the other obligations we have on a daily basis tend to occupy our time so much that we don’t even buy the roses, let alone smell them. However, making sure you pamper yourself from time to time is necessary for your inner and outer beauty, not to mention your sanity. If you need a quick ‘pick me up’ recipe, follow these simple tips and your body and your mind will thank you. 

Treat yourself to a manicure

Once a month go out and get your nails done. It is funny how something so simple like a manicure or a pedicure can lift your spirits up and help you feel beautiful. If you are on a tight budget and you don’t wish to spend money on this, no problem. Instead of visiting a nail spa, go ahead and do them yourself at home. A standard manicure set is all you need to trim your nails and push those cuticles back. When you are done, paint your nails with your favorite varnish, and you are done. When it comes to your toes, soak your feet for 15 or 20 minutes before you start cutting and shaping them with a nail file. Not only will this make your nails softer and easier to manage, but it will help you relax and unwind.

Soak yourself

Do you have a bathtub in your bathroom? If so, why not use it to make yourself feel great? Even if you are just a quick shower type of girl, you will enjoy relaxing in a bubble bath while sipping some good wine and listening to your favorite tunes. Soaking yourself for half an hour can have a soothing effect and help you unwind after a long day. 

Buy yourself new bling

We all know how a piece of jewelry can make or break an outfit. We also know that we can never have too much jewelry. Gem trinkets rarely go out of style, so treat yourself to chic jewelry with amethyst gemstone. With a new piece shining from your wrist, ear or finger you will feel like a million bucks, even though you spent significantly less. 

And since gold prices have climbed over the past decade, you can even invest in some 14K gold that looks as good as 24K and won’t break your budget. If you are located in Kolkata, India, then you’re in luck. There are some of the best jewelry stores that have beautiful collections for you to choose from. Just be sure to check today’s gold price in Kolkata so you’re getting the best deal possible for your new bling.

Get a massage

If you spend most of your day sitting down, your body is most likely suffering from some type of postural stress. In case your shoulders and neck often hurt like hell, getting a massage once a month can counteract the imbalance caused by sitting. In addition, a nice massage can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing and help you sleep better.

Start walking more

Whether you wish to improve your posture, get in shape, lose weight or clear your head, walking is the best activity for you. The amazing thing about walking is that it provides so many benefits, and you can do it anywhere, anytime. Even if your schedule is always crammed, you can try walking to work and using the stairs more. Doing so on a daily basis can improve your heart health, lower your blood pressure, and even give you a shapelier behind.

Get your hair done

A new haircut is a lot like New Year’s Eve, it makes us feel like we have entered a new chapter of our lives and helps us reset. If you are ready for a new look, find a hairstylist who has the skills to give you the makeover you deserve. 

Simple things like getting your nails or hair done, buying shiny trinkets that make you happy, or getting a massage can help you feel your best, so make sure you include them in your routine.
