Wedding Self-care, or self-care, in general, is often the last thing brides think about because they are so busy thinking about everything else. I have compiled a list of my top 6 self-care tips to practice the last few weeks leading up to the big day. Planning a wedding can be super stressful. I get it. I do this for a living! However, follow these top 6 tips and you will be feeling better in no time!
TOP 6 WEDDING SELF-CARE TIPS
Invest in some essential oils or candles to create an atmosphere of relaxation. By meditating at least 15 minutes a day, you will begin to feel calmer. Perhaps meditation for you is journaling, reading an inspiring book or listening to some relaxing music.
Have 1 entire day of “no wedding talk” a week. Have a date night or a night out with the girls. But having one entire day to not stress or think about the wedding will go miles for your mental sanity.
Drink water. At least 8-10 glasses a day. Water will rid your body of toxins and help reduce bloat.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. I call this the rainbow diet. Have a variety of colors on your plate during each meal. This will help ensure you are getting all of the proper nutrients and vitamins. It will also keep your skin glowing.
Continue your work out routine. I am sure that with the stress of the wedding, the gym has fallen off your to-do list. I totally get it, it is way easier to say, “I’ll do it tomorrow” and then tomorrow never comes. Making your fitness a priority during these few weeks leading up to the wedding will help with anxiety, depression, and stress.
Keeping your beauty regime simple yet effective is best. Now is not the time to try something new! Keeping your body hydrated and moisturized is paramount. Don’t go crazy with peels or crazy haircuts right before the wedding. Finally, DON’T PICK YOUR ZITS! Makeup artists can fix a multitude of sins, but seriously, don’t pick.
These top 6 wedding self-care tips might seem silly, but practicing even a few of them will help alleviate stress, anxiety and most often mild depression. Weddings can quickly become overwhelming. My final and biggest tip for self-care would be to simply enjoy this time with your partner. You love each other and are getting married for a reason. Do not let the wedding consume you, your life and your love. Get out and have some fun! And if you don’t believe me on self-care before the wedding, you can read with Martha Stewart has to say about having proper self-care.
