Self care ideas from real people
Self-care simply means taking care of yourself. It’s not one more thing for you to do or buy.
It takes effort to find sustenance in the day-to-day grind. With help from beautiful souls on Instagram, I put together some ideas here for you.
Here’s a list of self care tips and ideas from real people like you. Pick what you need at this moment, and always be kind to yourself.
- Keep it simple
- Go outside
- Sweat it out
- Engage your sense of smell
- Make yourself a haven
- Use music
- Morning routine
- Evening routine
- Go slow, gratitude, give grace
- Don’t forget the basic
Keep it simple
Do you overthink? Me too. Thankfully Nicole is here to set me straight...
Heather shared one way she savours lavender in the summer:
Sweat it out
(If I'm being totally honest... exercise doesn't excite me, but doing absolutely nothing does!)
Engage your sense of smell
I love Kritsen's tip here... don't waste the lemon rind!
Rose and White Grapefruit sounds amazing Helena. It's so smart to put the essential oil blend accessible so you get to enjoy it often!
Heather meant "heat pack", but you probably figured that one out already.
Make yourself a haven
Marcia did a thing to bring joy and peace. Is there chaos at home that annoy you to no end? Maybe it's time to KonMari it!
This is my favourite for the moment... thanks Faye!
I learned something new: Mirror work!
Go slow, gratitude, give grace
Some days, life is HARD. Maybe you need mindset shifts to help you get through the day. Other times, you just need some distractions to pause and recharge.
Like Katherine, she's declaring a day off as mental health day - such a great idea!
And don’t forget the basic stuff
Drink plenty of water, eat well, move your body, and get your sleep.
Performing a simple act of kindness can often brighten you own day.
Whatever the case, it’s important to pay attention to your need.
Take care of yourself. Everyday.
