It seems like 2019 is all about self-care. So treat yourself to a day of pampering. Draw a hot bath, plop in a bath bomb and RELAX!

Try out a bright nail color. It is a great way to fight those winter blues!
Read A Book

Listen To A Podcast
There are so many different kinds of podcasts out there! From crime to motivational podcasts, there’s one for everyone. Once you find the right one, it is SO easy to get immersed in a podcast, that you won’t be able to stop listening to it.
Make A Playlist
It’s so easy to get tired and uninspired by the music you always listen to, especially in the winter. It can be really fun to browse through Spotify or Apple Music and search for some new artists/songs. Making a playlist full of new songs is a great way to get motivated and inspired during the cold months.
