  1. I love these! I’d add reading a just-for-fun book, too – I used to read multiple novels a week as a kid, but when you grow up and life gets busier it just doesn’t happen anymore. It definitely feels like self care when I make the time, and I find that the more I read, the more creative I am!

    1. Yes, reading just for fun is a great one and something I love to do for quiet self-care time. Thanks for sharing Danai, hope you are having a great week!

  2. These are all such great ideas! I have felt so burned out lately and with all the changes with Covid, it hasn’t helped… some things are less busy now, but other things are even busier! A day to myself sounds so wonderful or even a daily tea time. I’ve been wanting to get back into Yoga, too. I need to pick one or two of these. 🙂


    1. Sorry to hear you’ve been feeling burnt out, it’s a hectic time of year, and that’s why it’s important we stop and check-in with ourselves too. I hope you can make time for some of these or whatever makes you feel more refreshed. Thanks for stopping by, Carrie:)

  3. I was wondering if exercising was on this list! I always count that as self care for myself. Even though it feels like work sometimes, lol..after a good workout I always feel so much better!


    1. That’s so true for me too, I procrastinate with working out, but I feel so much better after I do! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you have a great week, Shauna:)

    1. Thanks so much, and yes, writing it down is a great way to give yourself some TLC:)

    1. So true Ashley, with the year we have had, self-care is essential and something we all need more of! I hope you have a great week.

  5. I completely agree, if you don’t write it down, it’s not going to happen! These are great ideas! Mini pampering sessions are the best! I don’t have a Peloton bike but I do have the app and there are so many great workouts on there!

    1. Thanks so much, Jill. Yes writing things down is an important one. That’s a great idea about getting the Peloton app for the workouts!

    1. Thanks so much, Lovely! I hope you were able to download the printable then. We need to celebrate ourselves so much more then we do:)

  6. These are all great self care tips! I absolutely love #2 – learning to say no. This was such a hurdle for me before I became a mama. I wanted to be everybody’s best friend but it was a game changer when I finally stood up for myself. Working out has also helped give me more energy and be just a better person all around. I don’t know where I would be if I never came across fitness! I hope your week is going great so far and I know it’s a few days early but wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

  8. These are all great tips! I love the idea of writing down accomplishments – big and small. It helps us visualize what we did. One of my goals for 2021 is to become more strategic about planning my days – and writing things down is one of them. Have a wonderful day!

    1. So glad you enjoyed these tips, Lisa! We often don’t give ourselves much credit, and writing things down is a great way to acknowledge all that we do in a day:) I love the idea of being more strategic about planning your day. That’s something I need to work on too, thanks for sharing.

  9. These are all such great ideas! All the best sweetheart 😍😍

  10. All of these self-care ideas are wonderful! I am a big fan of getting up bright and early and drinking a cup of coffee, and planning my day. Also, I like to really set intentions for not just today, but keep in mind other goals that I want to achieve in the near future, and things like that.

    Your two points in the beginning are SO important. It is key that we actually make time for ourselves in our schedules, as well as set those healthy boundaries for our time and sanity.

  11. I love the ”have regular dates with yourself” because this is my biggest self-care thing. I LOVE having dates with myself, from buying takeaway sushi and eating it all by myself to even going to the cinema alone (when cinemas were open). Such a great post. And i really like the content of your blog!!
    Sending you love!
