Six Ways to Pamper Yourself

Pregnancy is the perfect time to pamper yourself. You may be more tired than usual, have mixed feelings about your body, and extra anxiety over the new arrival. Take some time to be good to yourself. Don’t wait around for your partner or family members to pamper you, do something nice for yourself.

Foot scrub - Make a foot scrub out of liquid body soap and salt. Find a fragrance you really like and fill up a small tub to soak your tired feet in.

Candle lit bubble bath - Choose your favorite scented candles and place them around your bathroom. A warm bubble bath is a great way to pamper yourself.

Listen to white noise or relaxation music - Play a cd with soft sounds. Sometimes you don’t make time to rest and relax. Music is a great stress reliever and way to relax.

Make a yummy fruit smoothie - Take a ripe banana and put it in the freezer. Mix it with a little milk, any other fruits you like, and a teaspoon of sugar in the blender. It tastes terrific, is easy to make, and is a great way to treat yourself.

Rent a new movie and lounge on the couch - Don’t forget the popcorn.

Have a mini shopping spree - Take out a set amount of money and go to your favorite dollar store or clearance store. Buy some items that are just for you and make you feel better. No need to break the bank for this.
