Old Town Alexandria is known for its old world charm, and I feel lucky to again live just a few miles from the historic area. Since spring is a time when many of us are breaking out of our homes and finding things to do, I figure there’s no better time than now to share my favorite fun activities in Old Town Alexandria. Many of these activities are free or low cost and can be done year-round!
Taking care of ourselves, loving ourselves and even speaking positively of ourselves can be extra hard in age when comparison and self-criticism are at the forefront. For the bad days, when negative thoughts are in the driver's seat, having a way to reset can be extremely beneficial for our mental health. That is where a self care kit comes in. I've used the things in my self care kit for years, but only recently did I go through the process of "building" a self care kit. So, today I'm going to share with you that process, what's inside my self care kit and how it has recently helped me.
I found several new affordable pieces I love and brought along some favorites from last summer. Today, I'm sharing them so you can get some spring break style inspiration! If you're heading some where warm in the next couple months, these are the affordable pieces I recommend packing.
