HEALTHY LIVING: The Monday Ritual

HEALTHY LIVING: The Monday Ritual

Mondays aren’t always my favorite. It is hard to go back to emails and long to-do lists after all the weekend fun (I am sure most of you can relate). Lately, however, I’ve found a way to make Mondays pretty enjoyable. They are what I like to consider my “me days”. For a few weeks now, I’ve scheduled in my hot yoga class as an actual appointment in my calendar. It is at 5:30pm, which was usually almost impossible to make. There were other meetings or things that were prioritized, causing me to cancel on yoga and ending the day annoyed because I was skipping one of my favorite workouts – yet again. Now, however, that it is a fixed point in my agenda, it not hard at all. I treat it just like other appointments, with the same importance.

After a 60 minute hot flow session, I like to do a little home-spa with some of my favorite products, that I also neglect way too often, simply because they take up more time than my regular routine. A nice scrub with frank and an active charcoal mask are on the menu, followed by an extra healthy dinner with lots of veggies and some TV. It really is the perfect start into the week and actually let’s me look forward to Mondays now. Do you guys have rituals to treat yourself or make your Mondays more fun?

This mask has become my latest obsession from Origins (along with a new serum, which I’ll share in the next beauty talk). I had the mask standing around for a while, because it didn’t seem all that appealing to lather my face in black stuff. Turns out this is the most amazing mask I have ever tried and I use it weekly now!! While I had it on last week, I started googeling my way around the internet for reviews. Do it – I dare you! Seems that nobody as anything bad to say about the “clear improvements” mask with active charcoal, and neither do it. Absolutely love it!

    Ich habe die Maske von Origins schon etwa seit einem Jahr und liebe sie heiß und innig- für gestresste Haut genau das Richtige!

    Liebste Grüße

    That is such a great thing to do, I have my workouts written in my month at a glance calendar on my magnet board, but I think I need to give it a time to really make sure it gets done 🙂

    Scheduling my workouts has been so beneficial! I used to skip them whenever something that seemed more important came up. I realized that I feel so much better, and perform better, when I have been taking care of myself. The funny thing is that everything still gets done when it needs to get done – I’ve gotten better at scheduling the things that need to happen and managing my time/prioritizing and delegating.

    Ich finde es immer wieder toll wenn Menschen so eine Motivation in die Woche mitbringen! Das ist zu beneiden! Ich Versuch jetzt schon seit einigen Wochen wieder in eine richtige Routine am Anfang der Woche zu kommen. Yoga steht da auch auf dem Plan, leider schaffe ich es immer wieder andere Dinge stattdessen zu erledigen…

    Die Maske hört sich interessant an. Ich hab so unglaublich sensible Haut, dass mir sogar die BodyShop Masken auf der Haut brennen. Harsh Life..

    Eine tolle Montagsroutine hast du!
    Bei einer Fernbeziehung heißt es Montags immer Abschied nehmen, weshalb der Montag nicht gerade mein bester Freund ist. Ich kaufe mir dann meistens frische Blumen und Abends schaue ich alte Sex and the City Folgen und so endet der Montag dann auch nur noch halb so schlimm.
    Die Origins Maske habe ich schon auf Kathis Blog entdeckt, seit dem bin ich restlos begeistert, wirklich ein tolles Teil.

    Liebe Grüße Lisa <3

    Tolle Routine hast du dir aufgebaut. Ich hab jetzt schon so viel gutes über Hot Yoga gelesen, ich muss unbedingt mal einen Kurs testen glaube ich!!

    Von den Origins Produkten bin ich grundsätzlich begeistert, da kann die Maske somit gar nicht falsch sein 🙂 LG Jenny

    Love this! Me-time is so important and if everyone would schedule something like this in their agenda, life would be easier for everyone. xo // Naomi in Wonderland
