Wouldn’t it be great if Self Care Sunday was a guaranteed weekly event where sheet masks were aplenty and everything was eucalyptus infused? Where you could be whisked away to a spa with soft robes, thick hand creams, and nothing but the tranquil sounds of nature to distract you from your Sunday Scaries?
Self Care Sunday can be guaranteed, and you don’t need to seek shelter in a bougie day spa to take advantage of it. You can have added peace of mind 24/7 knowing your indoor air is protected with AirDoctor purifiers, which remove chemicals and particle pollutants as small as 0.003 microns–that’s 100 times smaller than the HEPA standard, Simply incorporate these additional items into your end-of-the-weekend routine to create the ultimate Self Care Sunday sanctuary.
One of the easiest ways to be kind to yourself is to be honest about how you’re feeling on any given day. A journal is a great way to write out what you’re grateful for, what you’re frustrated by, and everything in between. Getting these feelings off your mind and down on paper makes room for new thoughts (good or bad), and you’ll start the week with a clean slate.
A hair mask
Sometimes, soft hair is all it takes to feel like your life is pulled together. Apply an easy homemade hair mask of avocado, olive oil, and honey. The omega-3 fatty acids and amino acids in this concoction will help with better hair growth, shine, and strength.
A decadent snack
Stock your self care sanctuary with yummy treats. Eating well and being healthy have their places, and those places are the other six days of the week. Sunday is the day to indulge in a decadent snack like berries drizzled in dark chocolate, garlic parmesan french fries, or a messy meatball sub. Trust us: you’ve earned it.
A scented candle or essential oil diffuser
No Self Care Sunday is complete without the glow of a candle, especially one that fills the room with a lovely scent. Most smell-good products contain dangerous petroleum-derived artificial fragrances and paraffin. For a health-friendly flicker, choose candles made with beeswax or 100% vegetable wax, and are scented with essential oils. Aromatherapy diffusers and organic essential oils are also a great way to add non-toxic relaxing scents to your air.
It’s even easier to enjoy the aroma of your sanctuary with AirDoctor’s three-stage filtration and quiet performance, which uses Whisper-Jet fans that are 30 percent quieter than typical air purifiers.
An amazing playlist
Your favorite song can make you happy. It’s proven: When we hear music, the pleasure centers in the brain release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that makes you feel happy. Even better? Studies show that there can be an increase in immunity-boosting antibodies and cells that protect against bacteria.
Crank up the tunes and your AirDoctor air purifier, which (like those antibodies) can keep viruses and bacteria at bay. It can also help remove pet dander, mold spores, and the dust you might kick up when busting a dance move or two.
A bouquet of flowers
Not every aspect of self care needs to have a biological benefit. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have something pretty to look at, and every Self Care Sunday sanctuary could use a bouquet of flowers. It doesn’t matter if you’re daisies, dahlias, daffodils, or good old-fashioned roses, you’ll just feel better having something pretty filling the space.
What does your ideal Self Care Sunday look like? Are you more into bubble baths and aromatherapy or workouts and Netflix binges? Whatever you prefer, clean air is a must, and AirDoctor is always there, protecting you and your air, every day of the week.
