For Ayesha Curry, Self-Care Means Art Projects with Her Kids
Welcome to Feel Good Five, where we ask people to share the things that help them feel their best.
Ayesha Curry is a busy mom of three, restaurateur, cookbook author, recipe developer, Covergirl, winemaker, wife to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, and creator of Homemade (a collection of home, kitchen, and beauty products), so to say that she spins a lot of plates on a daily basis is an understatement. So what does she do to wind down?
Ayesha tells us: “My version of self-care these days comes slim to none because I have a 7-month-old, I have a 6- and a 3-year-old, I have my work, and my relationship with my husband (which is work). That is a job in itself, making sure you keep your relationship strong. So self-care for me is very simple.”
Here are her Feel Good Five picks.
1. A morning ritual that starts the day off right.
“I wake up in the mornings and I take five minutes to say a prayer to God and give gratitude. Pray for protection over my children and my home. That moment is very important to me. If i don’t get this moment, my day feels off. It’s detrimental to my health.”
“When I can, once every two weeks, I try to do a nice bubble bath with Epsom salts in it. I love Uma bath oils so I put those in there too and take a nice bath. I have my phone in there, not going to lie. Even though I’m on social media and all that stuff, I never have a moment to catch up on it.”
“Oh and in the tub, a glass of wine. My wine! I make wine with my sister-in-law, Sydel. It’s called Domaine Curry. The Cabernet Sauvignon is amazing; it’s bold, flavorful, lots of luscious berries, heavy tannins. It’s very good. I love opening up a bottle of a big bold cab.”
“With the kids, I love doing art projects that I get on Amazon Prime. Construction paper, slime, looming kits. I find that those crafts not only teach them something that seems like old times, they learn a skill, but it also teaches them patience and intricacy skills. They’re so proud when they’re done.”
5. The yummiest produce money can buy.
“I love the Sunday morning farmers market! The best $5 I recently spent was on a crate of fresh strawberries. Those are the best. The ones you get at the grocery store don’t have flavor. They’re sour. And fresh dino kale for salads.”
