Self-Care Tips to Try This Summer

16 Jul

Now that the summer is in full effect, you might be wondering what to do while you’re on vacation. If you’re like many others, you’re looking for activities that are affordable, rewarding, and local. To say the least, the past 18 months have been challenging — coping with COVID-19, political upheaval, economic uncertainty, and everything else in between — and you want to do something nice for yourself.

Read on to find out how you can do precisely that, right here in Winnipeg. After the year you’ve just had, you deserve it.

Give Your Smile a Sparkle with Teeth Whitening

You’ve probably noticed a difference in the shade of your teeth over the years. It’s natural for teeth to gradually lose their sparkly white appearance over time because various foods cause tooth enamel to change colour. For example, are you a coffee, tea, or red wine lover? The tannins from such beverages stick to teeth, creating brown and yellow stains.

Did you know that you can easily whiten your teeth by a professional? Give yourself the gift of self-confidence by brightening up your smile this summer. Many people don’t know that teeth whitening in Winnipeg is accessible, painless, and affordable. All you need to do is find a trustworthy and reputable denture clinic that offers professional whitening services.

As long as you don’t have any crowns or fillings, all it takes is a few quick trips to your clinic for treatments, and you’ll have a fresh, sparkling smile in no time!

A Spa Night

Give yourself a real treat right in the comfort of home. Get out your skincare products, bubble bath, Epsom salts, and whatever else you need for a personal spa night. You’ll unwind without spending a dime and wash away the stresses of the last year and a half.

A Day Trip Out of Town

Sometimes you have to get out of town to experience the best kind of self-care. A trip out of the city can do wonders — you’ll get in touch with nature and your inner self. So why not go for a hike in Whiteshell Provincial Park? There are many exciting hiking trails to check out in the park where you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery of the landscape, lakes, and solitude.

The park is a mere hour and a half drive from Winnipeg, so consider taking a weekend to experience its beauty and wonder. And the best part is, it won’t cost you much money at all!

Plant a Garden

An excellent way to relax is to plant a garden. Gardening has been proven to decrease anxiety and depression, and it helps you focus on doing one thing at a time. Whether you have a large backyard or a small balcony, you can tend to a nourishing, beautiful garden to call your own.

You could devote some time entirely to yourself by planting flowers, plants, herbs, and produce. There’s something so rewarding about watching something grow from scratch, and you can turn the process into getting in touch with your green thumb.

Turn yourself into a priority this summer and engage in these self-care activities. The season only lasts for a couple of months, so make the most of it!

  1. FYI RE: Hiking in the Whiteshell
    Most of the trails for hiking and cycling are closed due to wild fire danger being extreme.
    Check the provincial websites for updates.

    The west bound Trans Canada Hwy 1 has several construction zones with long delays that can add up to 45 minutes to the return trip to Winnipeg, depending on traffic.
