I believe it is the best day of the year!!! Did you know that August 15th is Relaxation Day? Yes, you heard me right, there is a day that is devoted to relaxation. Personally, this means a little Self Care and pampering are in order (and maybe a little crochet too).
Relaxation Day is a day to kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh!
What a great day. The stresses, the hustle and bustle seemingly consumes us, every day of the year. Even Sundays are no longer days of rest and relaxation. There never seems to be a day to just kick back and relax. For those us with a hectic lifestyle, Relaxation Day is a day to look forward to.
It provides a break from the madness of your busy work and personal schedule. Todays is the day to enjoy either doing absolutely nothing, or partaking in your favorite relaxation activity. Avoiding stressful activities today is the rule.
When I think of “self care”, I think of the things that I enjoy and love. As a mom, and know many of you are moms (even if you have grown children), we live hectic lives and rarely get time to ourselves. So, when we do, we MUST take advantage of that time.
What do I do when I have time to myself, and do I dare say it, the house to myself! I take the time relax….
If I had a day (or even just a morning), I would sleep in, roll out of bed and have a cup of coffee, or two. Then I would take a long hot bath, and take the time to shave my legs (hahaha, no I don’t do this everyday-remember, I’m a mom). I may steal a face mask from my daughters bathroom and pamper myself with a little skin care.
Then I would sit down and crochet. I don’t even know what I would crochet, but I would make something for me, I do know that.
What would you do, if you had a day to just yourself to focus on self care and relaxation?
Self Care Crochet Patterns
Well, that is the dreamy stuff. Until that “me time” actually happens, I can prep for it! And, I can even do that with the hustle and bustle of life going on. These are some quick and easy crochet patterns that you can sit and make when you have just a few minutes or take them and work on them while you are waiting in the school pick up line.
Take time for self care with these easy to crochet face scrubbies. Crochet several with scrap cotton yarn from your stash. Or, with just one ball of yarn you can make multiple scrubbies so you’ll always have a fresh one.
Face scrubbies are great eco-friendly and reusable facial pads. They can be mainly used to clean up your facial makeup or simply as a cleansing cloth. This quick crochet face scrubbie pattern will be a great gift idea. You will make a set like the one pictured here in just about less than an hour and a half.
Remove your makeup with these cotton scrubbies, crochet them for gifts or for yourself. An added bonus with this design is that it comes in US & UK terms. Make sure you follow the one you are used too.
So far it has been all about face scrubbies, so I had to include this perfect Spa Headband. Seriously, you need a headband to hold back those fly aways before you can ever even begin to wash your face.
Makeup remover pads, facial rounds, cotton pads, face scrubbies… whatever you want to call them these reusable cotton rounds are your skincare routine’s BFF. They’re quick to make and work great for removing makeup or applying your favorite products.
