Give Yourself A Little Love
At Frangipani we’re adamant about the importance of self care. It’s essential for us to slow down every once in a while and grant ourselves the attention that we’re constantly giving to everyone and everything else. By taking the time to really listen to our bodies, our hearts, and our minds, we can actually give ourselves what we need. These moments of self-reflection and self care are especially crucial living in a world that demands so much from us.
When we take the time to slow down and be with ourselves, we recognize that there are infinite ways to care for ourselves. Whether it’s taking a bubble bath, journaling our worries away, or sitting down to read a book, there’s no right or wrong way to go about it! Because we are such versatile beings, and our needs vary from moment to moment, we have all sorts of products at Frangipani that can help you reconnect to yourself. We will make sure to fill your self care needs, whatever they may be! Read on to see some of our ideas!
Take care of your mind
We all live such busy lives nowadays and it’s easy to get caught up with work, friends, kids, and other types of responsibilities. That’s why it’s so important to step back every now and then to focus on ourselves, how we feel, and what we want! After all, you can’t take care of others without first taking care of yourself. Journaling is a great practice to stay up to date with how you’re feeling and to recognize what areas of your life align (or don’t align) with your goals and values. Our Secret Stories journal is perfect for expressing yourself privately in order to get to the bottom of how you’re feeling in your life. The bold cover will inspire you to be completely honest with yourself, knowing that there's no one around to spy on your private thoughts. Our Manifestation Journal is the best guide for getting clear on your goals and setting intentions for how to reach them. Manifestation is a really powerful practice that aligns you energetically with your true self in order to work hand in hand with the universe to get everything you want. Trust that no dream is too big or out of reach!
Take care of your body
When your body tells you that it needs some extra tender love and care, consider taking a night off to just relax or learn about the different ways that you can support its wellbeing. Our Shower Steamers are a great option for when your body needs some rest and special attention. The sweet essential oils fill up the air and infuse your body with their healing properties while you wash away all your worries. It’s a great way to give your senses some love and provide a stimulating, yet relaxing experience for your body. Or if you’re feeling more experimental, reach for your copy of The CBD Solution Wellness Book and read up on all the ways that you can use plant medicine to support your body throughout daily life. You might be surprised by all the natural solutions there are for some of the regular discomforts our bodies tend to go through!
Take care of your soul
The best gift you can give your soul in this busy, busy world is quietness. The essence of our being is exactly that. Quiet emptiness. One of our favorite ways to achieve this quietness is by simply lighting up some incense and meditating. Our Paddywax Incense Sticks are an amazing option for this; they come in three delicious scents and their container even includes a cover that doubles as a holder! Another amazing way to clear your head is by embracing your creativity and channeling your inner child through art! We carry some amazing options like the OMY Kawaii Poster which is big enough to hang up and pretend you’re coloring right on the walls. The key with both of these exercises is to practice mindfulness and simply let go of the outside world while you nurture your inner being.
We hope this acts as a reminder to put yourself and your wellness first, and that there are infinite ways to do so. Self care should be fun, simple, and something you look forward to. With the help of these products, taking care of your mind, body, and soul can be incredibly easy. The only thing you have to worry about is making time to dedicate to yourself. If you have any questions or need any more suggestions, you can always visit us at Frangipani in Wynwood and we are so happy to help.
