So this Sunday’s topic is drinking a warm beverage and listening to a chill playlist. If you’ve watched any of my YouTube videos I usually do have a warm tea or drink while I work, mainly to help me hydrated but also there’s just something about having a warm drink that’s comforting. Normally I don’t listen to music but say when I’m working on my blog or painting it’s also comforting.
They help me with self care because they’re things I’ve done for a while now but just morphed into their respective areas in my life. I know it doesn’t seem like a lot but having those have helped me get back on track many times. I really enjoy both of them to, they help me expand my pallet of both teas and music. Though arguably I haven’t been as of recently….
Anyways that’s all I have for this weeks Self care Sunday! I would love recommendations of teas or playlists in the comments, as always I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you next time.
As I said last week I have had my own bed for about three years now, and by the title it’s pretty self explanatory. I did a bunch of research on it for a little bit before I actually bit the bullet an bought this. I watched a bunch of videos on what your supposed to do to take care of it, how it’s made, how the cloth for the sheet is made. I also read up on what I can do as a young women living in the city where a balcony cost extra what else my options are. It’s a Japanese full size so it’s enough for me and one other person to sleep in comfortably that I got from J-life international. I also got a floor pillow as well which I use as throw pillows when I don’t have guest over who like to sit on the floor. I do not have tatami but I’m thinking about getting it in the future, maybe not this year but soon(ish). I did however order a wooden accordion style for under the bed but that won’t be here until October-November from japan. As for right now I have a friend who gave me some memory foam mats that she used for her old dorm back when I first got the bed but now she’s living at home. And my partner can tell a difference but I can’t so yeah there’s that…
Owning this futon was a struggle at first because of living in the dorm and not having enough window space for it to actually air out. Or there was also not having anything to prop it up on so i could actually get underneath. I bought a small bed vacuum that works wonders though, it helps get all the dead skin and moisture out of the bed. With owning this bed I have noticed my posture getting better or how my spine feels when I’m sitting in my chair, its very noticable in comparison to when I didn’t have this bed. It’s also pretty easy to fold up for me in the morning and it helps me get out of bed. I just fold it into an accordion and bam then I fold up my blankets then I have a lot more space in my one bedroom!
I wouldn’t say go out and buy one right now because I can’t force you too. I wont either, it should be your decision and this is only my experience. But if your on the fence about it do more reading on it like I did because it is an investment. Anyways I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you all next time!!
So it’s been a while since I did this, I have actually been working on this since I stopped I just haven’t been posting it really.. Right now though as I’m typing this up on a sunny Saturday the one thing I like to do is watercolor paint. Yes you heard right Paint, and as of typing this out I’m planning on sketching out something from howls moving castle. I’m going to do some reading today to get ahead for one of my classes.
For me there’s just something about how I can take the time for it to be nice just helps me take that thing slow. It’s also nice to know that if I dont want to show anyone I can do that as well. I’ve been enjoying painting because it’s a different medium than I’m used to, I have never really seriously dove into this type of paint before.
That’s really I had at the moment for this weeks Self care Sunday, I hope this inspired you to take up or get back into a craft you forgot about. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you next time!
