Self-care must haves
It’s important to stay connected to your body, no matter how much pain you’re in. These items may help.
Gua Sha & Rose Quartz Face Roller
It’s important to relax your jaw and face when you’re dealing with chronic pain. We recommend a rose quartz Gua Sha & Face Roller to take a few seconds each days to relax.
Self-Care: A Day and Night Reflection Journal offers a space to commit to your self-care routine with intention and dedication—helping you develop positive thinking, overcome challenging and stressful experiences and negative emotions, and cultivate a general sense of well-being and a healthy lifestyle. This 90-day journal gives you a path to creating a habit of regular self-care that you can carry with you throughout your life.
Lavender Pillow Spray
Endometriosis itself can ruin your ability to sleep: According to a study published in June 2018 in the journal Human Reproduction, women with endometriosis are twice as likely to be affected by fatigue as those who don’t have the condition. This fatigue was also linked to a seven-fold increase in insomnia. Having a relaxing nighttime ritual can help. Try this lavender pillow spray for a good night’s sleep.
If you’re in bed and you can’t do a lot, we noticed that sometimes even watching Netflix is too much. So we listen to podcasts a lot and recently we discovered that listening to audiobooks is almost as much fun as reading the books.
We recommend a subscription to Audible that comes with one free ebook a month! If you’re signing up for Audible using this link you’ll get 2 free Audible books instead of just 1 audiobook!
Apple AirPods helped us listen to the audiobooks, as they’re wireless and literally the best purchase we’ve ever made! You can freely move around in bed without fighting with the cords etc. A must for everyone!
Oils. It’s important to massage your skin, it’s great to use essential oils for that. We know that ‘taking care’ of your body and skin is probably the least on your mind when you’re in pain but it’s extra important to do your stretches and moisturize your skin!
The Healing Power of Essential Oils and Essential oils and aromatherapy recipes are great reads on how essential oils can help you heal. The best gift for anyone to get started with essential oils? Get them a complete kit with different oils! Not gifting it for the most creative person? Get rollers, ready to put on essential oil rollers blends so you don’t have to mix the essential oils yourself!
