Pampering yourself is one of the best ways to relax and unwind.

Here are some of our favorite self-care activities to help get the ideas flowing:
- Get a massage

- Head to the nail salon

Did we mention that all of these activities pair perfectly with a glass of bubbly?
Your arts and crafts may not always look as perfect as the guide you were following, but taking that time to stimulate your right brain and let your creativity run wild can help you feel refreshed from the everyday madness (plus there is the added bonus of a finished piece of art at the end of your self-care).

Get Some Fresh Air
A little fresh air, whether it’s a walk around the neighborhood, a quick jog in the morning, or a hiking expedition, is a great way to tune out life’s rush. If you love yoga, take your mat to the park and if you love climbing, do a quick search for an outdoor climbing gym. Just pick your favorite activity and take it outside. Even 15 minutes in the sunshine can help turn a frown upside down or turn a smile into a grin.
Wine cans are perfect for on-the-go enjoyment. Woga (wine + yoga) anyone?
Write it Down
Journals, blogs, or diaries are all a great way to reflect on what’s going on in your life. Whether you’re stressed out or just want to take a moment to process the day, writing is a great way to take care of your health and well-being.

Food for Thought
Feeding yourself well can give you an extra boost when you need a little TLC. Opt for wholegrains, fruits, and veggies to give your body grade-A fuel for whatever the day has in store. If you’re pampering yourself, consider throwing together a charcuterie spread. If you’re spending the day hiking, pack a cactus salad for the picnic along the way.
For a wholesome meal full of fruits and veggies, Rosé is a perfect pairing.
