The days leading up to your wedding can feel stressful. There’s so much to do, and wedding planning can feel like it consumes every minute of your time. It’s important to take care of yourself so that you can fully enjoy your day when it arrives. Find moments to slow down, and incorporate these 3 self-care tips into your daily routine.
Get Extra Sleep
Try going to bed earlier (when possible). This will help you feel more calm and rested as you approach the final days leading up to your wedding. It’s recommended that adults receive at least seven hours of sleep a night, but many people require more than that. Sleep helps to reduce stress, and it can improve your mood. Quality sleep will allow you to work through challenges from a better headspace and remain in a calmer state of mind throughout the planning process.
In order to accomplish everything on your list, it’s important that your body is properly fueled with adequate nutrition. Some brides are so busy that they forget to prioritize time for meals, causing a lack of energy and increased irritability. In order to look and feel your best leading up to your big day, make sure you’re eating the proper amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. It’s important to create a routine that works for your lifestyle and schedule.
Ask For Help
Sometimes, in order to take care of yourself, you need to ask others for help. If you have too much on your plate, you might be more likely to struggle with pre-wedding anxiety. It is perfectly acceptable to ask for help. And don’t forget, you can always delegate some tasks to family and friends. People are more than happy to help bring your vision to life; they are just waiting for you to ask. Most importantly, be sure to set aside quality time with your fiancé leading up to the wedding. Go out to a nice dinner, relax, and try to focus on non-wedding things when you can.
