Build the perfect Self-Care day from these activities
PICK A FEW AND RECHARGE, OR DO THEM ALL AND HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER.
Exercise. It’s about moving, not about pushing yourself past your limits. Self-care when exercise makes you feel good about yourself, not when you’re focused on burning calories.
Meditate. Meditation is the perfect way to focus inward and acknowledge all of the thoughts and feelings you’ve been neglecting.
Create. Paint, draw, origami, knitting, macrame… Wherever your creativity is, you can fall into a creative trance and relax your mind.
Get outside. Even if its just our own backyard, the outdoors can really impact your mood.
Sleep. The big one. Try settling into bed a little early and get some quality rest. It’s that simple.
Eat healthy. Whether meal prepping for your week, making a nutritious dinner, or cooking up some Sunday breakfast, it’s worth the time.
Read a book / listen to a Podcast. An escape from the ‘real world’, of your choosing.
Take a bath instead of a shower. It’s simple, you can relax in a hot bath.
Meet a fried for a tea. Doesn’t have to be tea, but surround yourself with all of the positive relationships in your life
Spend time with a pet. Everyone knows the unconditional love a pet can give. If you don’t have one, head to the park or local rescue…
Do something for someone else. These acts can get you out of your own head and make someone’s day a little better.
Turn off your phone for 30 minutes. Unplugging can give you a chance to reconnect with the things that really matter to you. Self-care doesn’t get much better than that.
