It's been a minute since I shared a Face Masks and Tunes post, but in honor of Thanksgiving break I figured this would be the perfect time to sit back and just think! I don't know about y'all, but I haven't really been able to catch a break since the semester started. Midterms came out of nowhere (okay, I had them on my syllabi but it still hit me) and now the semester is wrapping up. I've already registered for the Spring... scary.
If you're not familiar with Face Masks and Tunes you can check out the tag here:
Let's get right into it!
You probably know by now, but I love Glossier. Their Green Mask is one of my favorite staple masks. If I'm not making my own mask, it's my go-to. This one requires zero prep time because I wanted this post of FMAT to be simple, allowing you to reflect on all that you're grateful for. Let the mask and this playlist do all the work for you. All you have to do is sit back and give thanks.
*Of course, if you don't have this mask/don't care for it, use whatever your favorite mask is! And if you don't have any on you, here are some quick recipes you can do using household/common skincare ingredients: Matcha/Yogurt, Bananacado, Bentonite.
Instrumentals, a pensive narration by Willow Smith featuring audio from Michael Cera, and some chill remixes are the perfect combination for creating a clear headspace for you! Some guiding questions for you as you embark on this meditative/reflective face mask session:
- What challenges have I overcome this year? Who or what helped me face this adversity?
- Who are the cheerleaders in my life?
- How have I changed and evolved this year? Reflect on who you are today in relation to who you may have been a week, a month, or a season ago.
I hope these questions allow you to have a greater appreciation for all that you are and all that you have! Enjoy your Thanksgiving breaks, everyone. Please keep in mind that Flint still does not have clean water, and the Native communities that will be affected by the Dakota Access Pipeline are still fighting for theirs. You can donate to Flint here and protest with #NoDAPL here.
Sending you all love.
