Self Care Sunday

Kelliann DeCarlo

They say that a Sunday well-spent brings a week of content, and I tend to agree - especially when that includes a healthy dose of self-care.

We are a little over two months into the new year and while continuing to show up for the version of yourself you feel called to be is so important, caring for yourself in such a way that you can actually achieve those goals is even more important.

Rest is something that I have always struggled with - I happily blame attending a fine arts program in college where I made the choice to be better at achieving my goals only if I was so busy I could barely breathe. I come from stubborn Irish stock that believes in never wallowing, resting, or sitting down. Needless to say, it took me a long time to find the beauty in mindfulness and self-awareness but Kelle in 2019 functions a whole lot better when she takes the time to care for herself.

Simply put, I show up better for my art, my jobs, the people I love, and for you.

Here’s the roundup of products that help when I need a pick-me-up or a refresh…

Eye masks

Sometimes the smallest beauty treatment can make a huge difference. Slapping these on and heading into the kitchen to make my coffee has the ability to make me feel like I can conquer the day!
