#SelfcareSunday with Eryn Krouse
On those weeks when you feel like there's never enough time (i.e. every week), there's nothing more important than taking some quality 'me time' to recharge. So, we teamed up with Dr. Roebucks and a few of our friends on a month-long series to inspire your Sunday ritual and have you feeling ready to take on the world tomorrow.
First up, Eryn Krouse shares what's currently making her soul shine.
What are 5 songs that make you feel most relaxed?
Under The Same Sun - Ben Howard
Bloodflood - alt-J
Banana Pancakes - Jack Johnson
After Rain - Dermot Kennedy
Lime Tree - Trevor Hall
Do you like to indulge alone or with others? Who are your self-care partners in crime?
I love to indulge with my mom. We went on a girls' trip to Bali earlier in the year for a week of yoga, healthy food and spa treatments!
What are your favorite Sunday treats?
I love making some English Breakfast Tea with a little bit of sugar and almond milk. For food, I make myself a papaya acai bowl - so fruity and delicious and makes me feel like I'm on vacation.
Sometimes it’s (really, really) hard to disconnect and live in the moment. Do you make an extra effort during your “me time” to unplug & if so, how?
I like to limit time on my phone and computer by allowing myself a certain amount of time per day (usually less than an hour). I am way better at disconnecting when I’m traveling because wifi is typically scarce. It also helps me disconnect by going outside and enjoying nature, whether it’s going for a beach jog or a surf or going to the library to pick out some new books to read.
What's your favorite part of your #SelfcareSunday regimen?
Playing in the ocean and then taking a shower and a nap afterwards.
Eryn's AM to PM #SelfcareSunday Routine
8am - Morning yoga class
9:15am - Shower: wash my hair, exfoliate and shave. After, I put on a mask and my favorite Dr. Roebucks skincare products
10am - Make and eat a healthy breakfast: either oatmeal with berries, avocado toast or an acai bowl
11am-12pm - Stimulate my mind by reading a book or writing in my journal while drinking water with lemon slices
1pm - Hit the beach with my friends. Surf, lay out, snack and repeat. My favorite beach snacks are orange slices, tortilla chips with salsa and omusubis (Japanese rice balls).
6pm - Have an early dinner, shower again, clean out my beach bag and de-sand everything
7pm - Ride my bike to the beach to hang up my hammock and watch the sunset
8-9pm - Watch my guilty pleasure show (Grey's Anatomy or The Office) while drinking some chamomile tea
