Healthy Habits| My Simple Self-Care Rituals with Kiwami Greens
Mommin’ ain’t easy and sometimes I look and feel more like the walking dead than my ideal upbeat self. Long days and long nights sometimes get the best of me, but I’m usually able kick myself back into gear with a little self care.
Whether that’s taking a walk, sitting in the bath, taking time out for me before my daughter wakes up in the morning, or after she goes to sleep… it’s something I do to make sure I’m the best version of myself.
Self care for me, also means staying on top of my diet and making sure I am getting the proper nutrition. I used to skip meals and eat whatever I could find, but since becoming a mom and becoming more health conscious, I make better choices when it comes to my diet. I usually eat 3 meals a day and have incorporated green juices into my daily diet. Whether I make them myself or purchase them bottled, I really do my best to make consuming them a daily practice.
Their juice blend is inspired by a traditional Japanese greens blend called Aojiru, which has amazing nutritional benefits. Using young barley leaves, ashitaba (a plant with vitamins B1, B2, and B6, dietary fiber, calcium, and vitamin E, used in traditional Japanese medicine), matcha, and sencha in a convenient pouch that you open and simply pour into a glass of water or milk, Kiwami Greens is making it easier than ever to add nutritious greens into your diet. It’s also an awesome way to get calcium, vitamins B, C, and E, iron, fiber, and folic and amino acids in your diet. Click here to learn about all the ingredients in Kiwami Greens.
I personally love the fact that this blend includes matcha and sencha leaves. As a part of my time for self care in the morning, I enjoy having a quiet cup of green tea for the mental boost it provides. Sencha and matcha green teas are some of the best to do the trick. Having all that in one blend would certainly give me more time for me. Check out all the benefits Kiwami Greens offers and while you’re at it, sign up for their monthly subscription box.

Here are some of my favorite things to do for me:
I usually take a walk at a nearby trail, park, or lake. Moving my body and breathing all that fresh air makes me feel alive.
See a great movie
When I get the opportunity, I like to cozy up in the recliners at my local theatre with a bag of (maybe not so good for me) popcorn. Hey! Don’t judge…
Read a good book
I’m really overdue for this one! Reading a good book is an escape like no other.
Take a warm bath
For me, this does an awesome job of melting away stress. A drop or two of an essential oil and I’m in heaven.
Oh how I miss the days where I could sleep without being jolted by the beautiful sound of a crying baby lol. When I do get the opportunity, sometimes I will take a good restorative nap.
These are just a few of the activities I enjoy as a form of self care. I’d love to hear what you do to take care of you!
