Especially in chaotic times like these, wellness is crucial. Here at AlessiaAdora, we want to help promote all aspects of physical and mental wellness to nourish both the body and the soul. It’s all too easy to overextend yourself trying to do for others, but the truth is you can’t take care of anyone else unless you are also caring for yourself.

Self-care prevents burnout, fosters joy, and teaches us love. Here are three easy, fun, and relaxing ways you can practice self-care:



We can get so caught up in whatever we feel the world expects us to be, parents, teachers, dedicated workers, that we forget about what we really are, deep down- a delicate human body that needs nourishment and care. Check in with your body throughout the day to give your body the attention it deserves.

One way you can check in with your body is by taking breaks to drink water and eat healthy snacks. Another great way to practice bodily self-care is through light exercise like yoga or walks through your neighborhood. Light exercises like these provide care to your stressed muscles and joints, while also carving out time for contemplation, gratitude, and mindfulness.



Self-care should be a gift you give yourself each-day, every day. But, with all of life’s unexpected twists and turns, it can be hard to remember that you need to make time for yourself. That’s why a routine is so important. Practice self-care in your morning routine through using natural skin and hair care products, eating a healthy breakfast, and making sure to stretch your muscles before you start the day.

Mindfulness practices are another great strategy for a morning self-care. Try a morning meditation or daily gratitude journal to promote mental wellness as you start your day. A nighttime self-care routine is also crucial to helping your mind and body wind-down before resting. This will help you wake up feeling confident and rejuvenated. Use nourishing, natural skincare products before bed-time to replenish your skin after the stress of a busy day.



When we think of “luxury” we tend to think of ritzy extravagance and excess. But really, luxury is all about indulging your senses and taking time to enjoy sensual experiences. It is so important to treat ourselves to luxurious experiences as part of self-care. Something as simple as a massage or a manicure can make all the difference to our self-esteem and well- being.


One of the best places to incorporate a little self-care luxury into your life is in your bathtub. A relaxing bath is the perfect spot to take some time for yourself, rest, and heal. Try bath salts, bombs, melts, scents and oils in calming scents associated with self-love and healing like lavender, rose, eucalyptus, or vanilla. Burn your favorite candles, dim the lights, put on some soft music, and indulge in the sensual luxuries of floating in warm, fragrant water.


Remember, self-care is never selfish. When we take care of ourselves, we tend to not just our own wellness, but the wellness of our families; we model self-love and joy to our children, and we guarantee that our bodies and minds are cared for, so we can be there when our loved ones need us most.


We can all agree that this world needs more love, so why not start with loving yourself?
