Weekly Wellness Checklist

May 6, 2019 No Comments

Do you have a weekly wellness checklist? If not, then you definitely need one.

Practicing self care is a super important part of looking after yourself. Your wellness is what makes you – if you don’t nourish yourself then how will you grow?

Generally when people think about self love, they picture sitting in a bubble bath with a glass of wine. But that isn’t all there is to self love and wellness. It’s so much more than that.

Let me ask you this question – what do you do every week, without fail, to look after your body, soul and mind? Do you do many things… or nothing?

If you aren’t one to practice self love but want to start looking after yourself, then let me help you by showing you my weekly wellness checklist.

Remember the things you’re grateful for: It’s so important to stay in check with reality and remember to practice gratitude every now and then. This is how we grow as humans and flourish into kind people. Write down a list of 5 things that you are grateful for and why, then reflect.

Have a long shower: Spending a little bit of extra time to pamper yourself in the shower makes you feel good. Take the time to really clean your hair, shave your body (if you do that), exfoliate and don’t forget your skincare. Wash off the weeks bad vibes in the shower and prepare to start a new week. When you get out, slather yourself in your favourite moisturiser and relax.

Have a conversation with someone you trust: There is nothing better than letting everything out and getting an opinion on your thoughts. Having someone who you connect with and can comfortably talk to about anything and everything really helps your soul. Fall into them and make it a weekly thing to unload your thoughts and share your feelings. Let them do the same.

Look in the mirror and praise yourself: How often do we actually take a look at our reflection in the mirror and want to compliment every inch of it? If you don’t do it at all, you should start. It’s important to not only love your mind, but the skin we are in. Our bodies are our home and we must look after them. Start off small and tell yourself you are awesome and you are beautiful.

Go to the gym: I understand not everyone wants to go to the gym, but it is super rewarding. Not only physically, but mentally too. You have a sense of accomplishment once you have done an invigorating workout and it makes you feel good. Try and get to the gym once or twice a week… or, if you don’t have access to a gym, go for a walk a couple of times a week to get your body and brain stimulated.

Read a new book: When do we get to read anymore… hardly ever. Being an adult and having a working schedule is really draining. Even a teenagers schedule with school and sports is tiring. Take a break and crack open a new or favourite book and let yourself fall into the world of whatever you’re reading. You’re not only stimulating and exercising your mind but you’re doing the same to your heart.

Let loose for an hour: When you’re always so serious from working or going to school, you start to lose sense of your inner child. It’s a great thing to let loose every once in a while, so start doing it every day. Dance around the house to loud music, go to a carnival, start singing every day. Anything that makes you happy and makes you feel like a child at heart.

Meditation: Being active and loud is great, but there is a time where we do need to take it down a notch and relax our mind and soul for a little while. Pop some calming music on, sit down wherever you’re comfortable and meditate for an hour. Think about calming things, good times, practise your gratitude… Let go of all your frustrations and worries. As long as you’re calm and relaxing yourself, then you’re good to go.

Make a cleaning list: When you think of a cleaning list, you groan to yourself. Am I right? It doesn’t have to be that way! Cleaning can be really relaxing and allow yourself to feel pride and accomplishment. Start off with a small, daily checklist that you can complete. Having a clean house/room also makes you feel much better; it’s a fact!

Burn some incense: Burning incense is so relaxing and can help you focus on keeping calm. It’s also great for making your room or house smell great, and who doesn’t want that? Grab your favourite scent and let it burn until it has run out.
Congratulate yourself: the most important thing is to congratulate yourself for all your efforts during the day or the week. Be proud of yourself. Be your own cheerleader.

Now that you have seen my version of a wellness checklist, it’s time to create your own.

Don’t forget to look after yourself and remember that you are important, your body is important, your mind is important and your soul is important.

We only have one life and one body, so make it good and look after it.

  • So in love with my @littlesomethingsleepwear personalised pj’s 🥰

They are SO luxurious and they’ve just recently expanded their size range, which is perfect because Christmas is just around the corner 🎄

Swipe to see some bloopers with my puppers 🐶 They wanted to be in the photos!
  • My body is just as good as a thin body and deserves just as much respect. I am going to continue to take up the same amount of space I always have and I will never apologise for it. My body does wonderful things and I will love it forever ❤️
  • COSMETIC INJECTIONS ‼️ SWIPE FOR BEFORE AND AFTER ‼️ I was so lucky to have @cosmeticnursebrittany reach out to me to see how she could help me with cosmetic injections. I jumped at the chance because one of my biggest insecurities is my mouth as it lifts weirdly on one side and goes gummy!

We did a simple procedure (that takes literally a minute), called a lip flip!! Just four simple injections of Botox to relax the muscles a little and pull the lip back/up to make the lips look poutier 👄

In the before and afters (before top, after bottom) you can see that my smile would pull to one side/go gummy on one side when I would smile open mouth. I really didn’t like this so @cosmeticnursebrittany helped even that up and I am SO BLOODY HAPPY with the results!!!! I am literally over the moon because it’s something so simple to help fix something I didn’t really like. All whilst still keeping a natural look 🥰

I booked with Brittany at Chadstone Shopping Centre but she’s also at a couple of other locations across Melbourne! I 100% trust her and I will definitely be going back to get fillers next as well as take my mum to her for some Botox too 🤗

Cheeky swipe to the last one and you can see a video of me getting my lip flip done! *I had the procedure done two weeks ago - that’s not bruising it’s the phone shadow in the lighting
  • I was lucky enough to be invited to take part in a very important photoshoot and the topic is something very close to me and something I will always promote.

#everybodyisabikinibody is something that I would love to scream from the rooftops and project to the entire world - but sadly, social media and societal standards discourage people from being happy in their own bodies. They project the idea that everyone has to have the perfect ratio body, flawless skin and to die for looks; but the honest truth is that you can look however you want to look.

My body may be fat and wonky, but I love it and I will wear my skin with pride. Every single person, no matter their size, shape, skin colour or age should be able to feel good about themselves - and they should definitely be able to go to the beach or pool and wear whatever the heck they want without being judged or criticised.

The photoshoot I was a part of showcases and highlights the point that we are all beautiful and all entitled to be comfortable and happy in our skin. I did struggle when I was younger to enjoy my body, and as I got older it became more apparent that i had to be skinny to fit in - but that’s so far from the truth, it’s crazy. It took me a long time and it was a long journey to become comfortable with my body and the way it looked, but the journey was so worth it that I wouldn’t change it for the world ❤️ If you want to do something but fear you can’t because of the way you look - remember that it’s okay to be scared and it’s more than okay to go against what society tells you. It’s okay to be yourself and love yourself. 
Photos are coming soon ❤️
  • Learning to love yourself is not just loving yourself in the good times, but also loving yourself when you’re goofing off and letting your double chin and rolls flap around 🤣

I promised I would show you the authentic me - and this is me 100%! Goofy, loud and playful 😜

Embrace yourself in ALL of your forms. Every single one of them. I promise you will enjoy yourself 100x more ❤️
  • Free and fabulous in @esprliaplus ❤️ Absolutely in love with this dress. It’s so cute and such a 50s vibe!

  • No makeup day today 🥰 Had a lovely dinner at @hogsbreathknox
  • Remember: you are allowed to take up space no matter your condition or appearance. You are valuable to our society and to your friends and family. You’re special and you should know that.

I used to tell myself I couldn’t do specific things because of my weight. That I was too fat - but honestly, f**k it! I’m on this earth and I demand to be taken seriously and seen as a person: because I AM.

So chuck that lingerie on, wear that crop top, show off those legs... do the things you never thought possible. Stuff other people’s opinions because they don’t matter! #standup
  • Still obsessing over this shoot with @everydaylingerieco 🥰 I wear my ELC undies all the time and they’re so damn comfy.
