It’s October, and you know what that means. Time to grab your squad, break out the Halloween candy and get spooky. But first, do you have a costume?
Dressing up doesn’t have to mean that itchy pirate costume from the Halloween store. Whether you’re headed to a party, dressing up at work, or just passing out candy, here are a few ways to get frightful with your favorite activewear.
A classic costume with a modern twist, pair these comfy mummy leggings with a white crop top, some toilet paper and voila—you’ll be the talk of the party!
Make a splash this season with some cute fish scale leggings! Throw on an iridescent sports bra and a mesh crop top for a comfy, cute look that says, I washed up like this.
If your Halloween plans consist of sitting on the couch watching scary movies, you can still cozy up in a cute costume. Just put on your trusted pair of black leggings (let’s be honest they are probably already on) and pair it with a comfy jack-o-lantern tee!
Don’t be a bonehead, get yourself a pair of these scary skeleton leggings. Whether you’re the Sally to someone’s Jack or just chillin’ watching Nightmare Before Christmas, this is classic Halloween attire.
Take your look out of this world with a glam galaxy print! Whether you’re going to that office Halloween party or finding your heart center on the mat, you’ll be a star wherever you are.
Stoked to pass out candy? Achieve some serious Valley Girl vibes with these totally tubular neon leggings. Match it with an equally bright tank, your old converse, and a sweatband for a rad outfit that completes your night!
When you think of self-love what do you think of? Bubble baths, walks on the beach, facemasks, or what? Self-love can mean so many different things but when we think about self-love, we have to acknowledge loving ourselves both on the outside and on the inside. The way that we show ourselves love is one of the most important things we will ever do.
How do we treat ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What foods are we putting into our bodies? How are we thinking about our overall well-being when practicing self-love?
As self-love defines and redefined itself for you over the years, here are a few foundational tips to think about when easing into your self-love journey.
Don’t we love this one? Loving ourselves has a lot to do with the boundaries that we have for ourselves, with others, and for others. Take time to think about your own emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs when setting boundaries that reflect your personal needs. Boundaries don’t have to be big and scary; they are here to remind us that you get to have your lived experience and still have expectations about how you’d like to be treated and what you’d like to feel.
When thinking about your boundaries, ask yourself:
In a world where perfectionism and curated existences have been rewarded, begin to cultivate compassion for yourself. You are a soul having a human experience and it’s totally okay if things are not perfect.
Mindfulness exercises such as Breathwork, self-care activities, and self-compassion, all help train the mind, emotions, and even the body’s stress chemicals to be able to deal with undesired situations. Self-compassion means, can you be nice to yourself? Can you find empathy and kindness for yourself in the middle of what feels chaotic, stressful, or unwanted? Self-compassion means that we get to make mistakes, have our plans not work out the way that we wanted, and we still get to celebrate that we are doing the best that we can and it is enough.
When thinking about self-compassion, ask yourself:
In every sense of the word “nourishment”, begin to learn what nourishes you and what depletes you. Nourishment doesn’t just mean food for yourself; it means that whatever you are consuming whether it be media, podcasts, people, energy, information, etc. all impact the way that we think, feel, and experience life.
Nourishing yourself definitely goes right along the lines of having your boundaries intact and practicing self-compassion.
When thinking about nourishment, ask yourself:
That’s it. Those are the foundational steps to cultivating a self-love practice that you can ease into your daily routine. Come back to these questions often, because like anything else, self-love is a practice and it takes effort, time, and intention to maintain.
