We know you’re a #girlboss. Whether you’re slaying at work, crushing it at the gym, or solving tall girl problems at home, you’re fierce enough to handle anything that life throws your way. At Alloy Apparel, we believe every tall babe has grace and power — and you deserve to own it.
But one of the biggest secrets of success is self-care. Sometimes you need to just slow down, change into some women’s tall loungewear, and focus on you. Scheduling time for self-care helps you manage stress, boosts your mood, and improves overall health.
If you feel like you need a little boost, here are six of our favorite self-care activities:
- Get a Coloring Book
Adult coloring books have been a popular trend for a while now, and they’re one of our favorite ways to unwind. Your inner child will thank you. Coloring is a wonderful way to relax — and it’s super fun, too!
You can find coloring books for almost any subject, whether it’s animals and nature, abstract design, or even your favorite TV show or movie. Grab some markers, colored pencils, or crayons and forget the stress of tall girl problems as you lose yourself in bright patterns and colors.
- Try a Guided Meditation
No self-care list would be complete without mentioning meditation. Although people have been meditating for thousands of years to achieve spiritual enlightenment, you don’t have to be a monk in a cave to reap the benefits of meditation. Even ten minutes a day will give you a calmer, more balanced mind.
There are many different ways to meditate, but we love guided meditations because they help us stay focused. Just change into some comfy women’s tall loungewear, find a quiet place to sit, and relax with an app like HeadSpace or one of the thousands of free guided meditations on YouTube.
- Pamper Yourself
We believe pampering yourself is one of the most important ingredients in the self-care recipe. Take care of your body. After all, it takes care of you! But pampering yourself can take any form you like. Every woman is unique and there’s no wrong way to honor your inner goddess or your inner rockstar.
For some, it might be a long bubble bath with candles and a glass of wine. For others, pampering yourself might mean getting a mani-pedi, a gourmet dinner at a new restaurant, or just curling up with a good book and a cup of tea while wearing your favorite women’s tall loungewear.
- Make a Vision Board
Here’s another crafty option to help you recharge from your ongoing tall girl problems: make a vision board! We love vision boards because they feed our creativity, give us new inspiration, and provide hours of pleasant daydreaming. If you’ve never made a vision board, it’s super easy. Just gather some old magazines and cut out any images or words that speak to you, then paste them on a board.
You can use beautiful, exotic locations you’d like to visit, public figures who inspire you, activities you want to do, or objects you’d like to own. No idea is too big or too small! And if you want to save some trees, go green by using Pinterest. However you make it, vision boards are very relaxing.
- Start a Gratitude Journal
Starting a gratitude journal is one of our favorite self-care exercises. This practice is also incredibly transformative. Life can become so busy that it’s easy to lose perspective and get caught up in daily frustrations like traffic or an annoying coworker. By starting a gratitude journal, you’ll remind yourself of the people, activities and places you love.
Begin by listing at least three things you’re grateful for at the end of each day while relaxing in your PJs or women’s tall loungewear. It could be something as simple as your morning latte, or a stranger holding the elevator. Eventually, you’ll begin to focus more on the positive aspects of your life. You’ll feel more balanced and won’t get stressed out as quickly.
- Recharge in Nature
Finally, when it comes to relaxing and recharging, nothing beats the great outdoors. Spending time in nature is a fantastic tool for self-care. It’s grounding, refreshing, and free. Plus, you’ll receive all the great health benefits of fresh air and vitamin D.
If you’re an “outdoorsy” type who loves hiking and camping, great! But you don’t have to be a total granola girl to enjoy nature. Spending time at the beach, a neighborhood park, or even your backyard are all ways to relax and feel renewed. Just put your phone on silent, kick off your shoes, and take a few moments to enjoy the plants and animals around you.
Relax & Recharge with Self-Care
Conquer tall girl problems and be the best version of yourself by making time for self-care. At Alloy, we believe it’s important to relax and recharge so you can rule the world like the queen you are!
