By now, you’re probably winding down your weekend, and preparing for the week ahead. And that’s smart! Studies show that people who take the time to mentally prepare for the week in advance are more likely to be happier and healthier.
Today’s task though, is about preparing yourself tonight for a good night’s sleep …
Day 8 : January 8
DO a mask tonight.
Sunday nights should always be about self care; about taking the time to rest and rejuvenate. Whether you choose a DIY organic mask, a fancy clay mask from your favourite brand, or those super cute sheet masks with an animal face on it – get masked!
Clean your skin as you normally would this evening and put on your comfiest pjs. Turn on your Netflix, apply your mask, climb under the covers, and let your mask sit for about 20-30 minutes. Get up, remove and rinse mask, climb back under the covers … continue watching Netflix.
And you’re done. GOOD NIGHT!
TIP : If you didn’t already exfoliate recently, exfoliate before you mask so that your skin can reap the full benefits of the mask.
HOMEWORK : Check your calendar and schedule in regular masks. It sounds funny … but we all know how hard it is to keep the habit of doing something beneficial for us, so PENcil it in.
