SUNDAY NIGHT SELF-CARE: ✔️

Tonight, I took an Epsom salt bath for the first time tonight & it felt SO GOOD to just lay there, relax & disconnect for half an hour!

You guys know how I feel about self-care – I try to do it everyday & I strongly believe it’s a crucial component in living a healthy lifestyle, a way for you to practice self-love, know your worth & give your body a well-deserved break from all the hustle & bustle of LIFE!

My goal this week is to practice self-care for at least 30 minutes each day & I’m off to a good start!

Your body loves you. Show it some love too! ❤️

I’ve been working out a lot lately & have found tons of natural remedies to help with muscle soreness to the point where I hardly feel it anymore (tart cherry, magnesium, adding electrolytes to my water & collagen), but I had been hearing so much about how Epsom salts could also help soothe my muscles. So of course, I just had to give them a try!

Bathing in epsom salts is known to have many other health benefits as well.


WHY EPSOM SALT?


natural exfoliant & anti-inflammatory used to treat muscle aches & swelling, sore muscles, dry skin & even to fight internal health issues.

boosts magnesium levels naturally! (magnesium is crucial for many bodily functions such as muscle control, energy production & elimination of toxins).

helps reduce stress & relax the mind (magnesium deficiency has actually been shown to enhance stress reactions).

flushes out toxins due to the sulfates by providing a heavy metal detox & pulling salt & toxins out of the body’s cells, as well as cleansing the liver.

helps naturally relieve symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders.

moisturizes the body.
