Self Care Ideas

Self Care Ideas

I think it’s great to have a list of Self Care Ideas handy to refer to when I’m stuck for suggestions or need a quick pep-me-up. I’ve previously talked about setting myself Daily Self Nurturing Activities as well as the Importance of Self-Love and Self Care.

Recently as part of the March Boho Berry Challenge I created a Mind Map of Self Care Ideas. It’s helped me realise that, for me, there are many different ways I can take care of myself. Here’s a look at some of the self care ideas I’ve come up with and how they fit together…

Self Care Ideas

I have these ideas divided into sections with several suggestions for each section. I hope that this will allow me to work out what type of Self Care I need and then which specific activity is suitable for the time I have available and my location.

Rest
  • Have a nap
  • Early Night
  • Lay-in
Get Outside
  • Go for a walk
  • Sit outside
  • Go on an adventure
Connect
  • Cuddle
  • Reach out to a friend
  • Talk to someone
Cleanse
  • Have a bath
  • Have a shower
  • Wash face
Move
Nourish
  • Have a drink of water
  • Eat nourishing foods
  • Have a snack
Create
Tune In
Tune Out
  • Watch a movie
  • Read a book
  • Watch some youtube
Motivate
  • Watch a TED talk
  • Read a self help book
  • Do something completely different
Listen
  • Put on some music
  • Create a playlist
  • Find a podcast
Pamper
  • Face mask
  • Hair treatment or cut
  • Spa or beauty salon

Some of these ideas seem so obvious and yet I know at certain times, when I really need them, that I don’t always think of them. I’m really glad I’ve got this list as a starting point to come back to whenever I need it.

What would make your list of Self Care Ideas? Can you think of anything I’m missing?

Find Your Happy Journalling Workbook

I’ve created a journalling workbook full of twenty-one prompts to help you find more happy in your daily life. It’s the perfect self-care activity. And each prompt can be completed in 10 minutes so you can find time in your day to do it.

I’ve shared more about how the book came together here. And you can buy a copy here.

  1. Really, you hit all the good ones for me. I tend to gravitate towards almost all of these self- care ideas!! In fact, I pampered myself today with a facial mask and bath. I did my Yoga and took my dog on a long walk!! Thank you for sharing these great tips for Self-Care. Hope you have a lovely week.

    1. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the self care tips Allison. You just can’t beat a facial mask and a bubble bath for a pamper session! And I love yoga and walking for self care as well. Hope you’re having a great week too!
