The Ultimate Self-Care Plan Every. Woman. Needs.

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy to let self-care fall by the wayside. Luckily, the new year is closer than you think! This year, we are going to focus on ourselves. For real this time! Every year it’s the same old dance of saying we’re going to do something we NEVER do (but want to!) Like a Boudoir Shoot… 😉 

This is the “Ultimate Self-Care Plan Every. Woman. Needs.” just for you. 

Step One: Do Something a Little Daring and Different

The first step in your self-care plan is to change it up. Stop getting stuck assuming that self-care means sitting around in your oldest pair of pajamas, scrolling through the channels on the television. Instead, let’s end this year off with a BANG. Be bold. When was the last time you’ve done something for the first time? Get out of your routine and do something you’ve been DYING to do. Remember those boudoir pictures you came across on Pinterest? Or the ones your friend’s sister told you she did for valentine’s day last year. Schedule a boudoir shoot but this time do it for YOU! Discover how it can change your perspective on what self-care really is.

Wait—what? Scheduling a boudoir shoot might not have been anywhere on your self-care list for 2019, but consider these incredible benefits:

  • An entire session focused 100% on you. You’ll have your hair and makeup done, feel pampered and relaxed, and get to be the center of attention while a qualified all-female staff makes sure that you look and feel your best.
  • Feel more comfortable in your own skin. When you schedule your boudoir shoot, you’ll get a look at your unique beauty. That will give you a feeling of comfort with who you are that will carry you far beyond the initial shoot.
  • A confidence boost that will carry you through all of 2019 and beyond. There’s something freeing about discovering just what your body can look like—especially when you get to keep the evidence. Look back on your gorgeous boudoir shoot throughout the rest of the year to boost your confidence whenever you need it.

Not only that, when you schedule a boudoir shoot, you’ll get a day to sit back and relax. You don’t have to check your email or glue yourself to your phone whether you’re waiting for important client calls or just waiting for a call about the kids’ latest antics. It’s a day that you’ll schedule to be off work, make sure someone else is taking care of the kids, and set your worries aside for a few hours. Your boudoir shoot is your day, and you get to enjoy it guilt-free. What better gift of self-care could you give yourself this year?

Step Two: Do a Little Shopping

Why is it that we, as women, feel so much guilt when we go shopping for ourselves? We’ll cheerfully spend money on other people—our spouses, our kids—but when the time comes to spend money on ourselves, we falter.

When you schedule your boudoir shoot, you’ll get to head into some of your favorite stores—or maybe take a look inside those lavish lingerie stores that you’ve always avoided in the past. You’ll go armed with a guide that will help you choose the best look for you. You’ll walk out with incredible lingerie that will make you look and feel amazing.

There’s nothing like a little retail therapy to take your self-care habits to the next level—and thanks to your boudoir shoot, you have the perfect excuse to go shopping for yourself. You might even be able to justify picking out a special outfit or two or choosing a few perfect accessories.

Step Three: Get Pampered

Pampering ought to be a regular part of every woman’s schedule. You deserve to sit back, relax, and let someone else take care of you every once in a while, just like you so often take care of everyone around you. Unfortunately, all too many women miss out on that experience.

Consider what being pampered means to you. Does it mean sitting back while someone else takes care of your hair and makeup? Having your fingernails and toenails carefully painted? (After all, you wouldn’t feel your best with rough-edged nails and chipped polish!)

If that sounds like your idea of heaven, then there’s the good news: all of these are pieces of the puzzle when you go in for your boudoir shoot.

All the hard work is over. You’ve chosen your outfits, had your hair and makeup done and figured out how to help yourself look and feel your best. What’s left? Enjoy a glass of wine (or virgin pina colada!)—Relax,  sit back, and savor every sip. Give yourself a pat on the back,  scheduling your session is the perfect way to have one amazing day filled with self-care that will carry you throughout the new year.

Step Five: Keep Your Boudoir High!

Your boudoir shoot is a single event of self-care. The results, however, will last far beyond it. Consider how you can carry the lessons you’ve learned about yourself during your shoot throughout the rest of the year, using them to create a self-care plan that will provide you with more energy throughout the rest of the year. Consider these suggestions:

Make More Time to Feel Beautiful

What is it that makes you feel beautiful? For many women, it can be difficult to simply find the time—but after your boudoir shoot, you’ll learn that it doesn’t have to take all day to feel beautiful. Remember you can always:

  • Schedule an appointment to have your hair done professionally before a big date, an important conference, or a major event. You’ll feel more pampered and relaxed and ready to take on the world!
  • Take the time to schedule a manicure or pedicure. This is a quick-fix pampering solution for many women.
  • Put on that lingerie you bought—even if you’re just putting it on for yourself. You can feel your best whether you’re waiting for someone special to come home or hanging out on the couch alone as you watch television.

Treat Yourself

After your boudoir shoot, you’ve had the opportunity to realize just how amazing you are—and how much you deserve that special treatment that you so often deny yourself. Include treating yourself as apart of your self-care plan. Try:

  • Going shopping and actually buying something for yourself. Make it something a little frivolous, but that you really love.
  • Make time to sit on the couch, have a moment to yourself, and drink a glass of wine or a virgin pina colada. You’ll be amazed by how much better this simple action makes you feel on the hard days.
  • Make time for you! You deserve time to disconnect from all the demands of the world and simply sit back and relax. Afterward, you’ll find that you’re much better prepared to dive in and handle whatever the world throws at you.
  • My personal favorite, indulge in your favorite dessert. I know you’ve been trying to avoid sugars and sweets but hey, isn’t one of your resolutions going to be to work out more? You got this girl.
