  1. I am a total introvert! I like the idea of early morning walks. I usually take mine at the end of the day, and there are definitely more people out at that time. I just started practicing deep breathing too. It really has helped me!


    1. I didn’t know you were an introvert, Shauna. We have a lot in common; l love morning walks and deep breathing. Those are two of my staple self-care activities!

    1. Oh, I’m so glad this post gave you some insight and hope your husband will like these ideas! Thanks for stopping by, Kathrine:)

  2. I’m an introvert and it always made me feel inadequate when people commented on my shyness. I think it made me even shyer. Anyway, I do love having plans and being busy but definitely need the downtime to recharge. These are great self-care ideas! I love coloring and walks by myself!

    1. I didn’t know you were an introvert too, Jill! It seems it’s a common personality for bloggers, which totally makes sense. Yes, it was the same for me when people would call me shy. So glad you liked these ideas:)

  3. I am definitely an introvert and I’m loving all of these great ideas! I love doing crafting and running by myself for self-care!

    1. I’m glad to hear you liked these ideas, Laura and running alone is another great one! It’s nice to connect with other introverts:)

  4. I love all of these suggestions. I especially love the walk on the grass barefoot. Something so simple yet probably never done with intention.

    1. Thanks, Yadi! It really is so simple, and I find it’s really relaxing and an easy way to be more connected to nature.

  5. Martha, this list is so helpful!
    Sunbathing and making a fruit salad. Yes!
    Do you think we can grow from an introvert- to not so introverted?
    That has been my path.
    Take good care.

    1. Hi Lindy, I’m happy that you found this list helpful and took the time to comment. I think we can become less introverted if we are intentional about it and want to change for whatever reason. There are extroverted introverts; it’s a spectrum, so it depends on where the individual is.

    1. Thanks, Ashley! I agree alone time is the best time to recharge!

    1. Thanks, Tiziana! Yes, for sure, extroverts can enjoy all of these too:) I hope you had a great week!

  6. Absolutely love all these ideas! Sitting in a coffee shop with a book and learning a new outdoor hobby (hiking) sounds like exactly something I’m going to do this summer. A huge thank you for a fellow introvert of the other suggestions in this list 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words Gaukhar. So glad these suggestions are helpful:)

  7. I loved reading this post, Martha! Especially because I am an introvert too. I’ve definitely been called ‘shy’ more than once and some people have even taken my quietness for being rude, which I’ve felt so guilty about over they years. The more I get to know someone, the more talkative I am. But it’s sometimes difficult for me to open up right away, especially in large gatherings. They tend to make me nervous.

    All of these ideas are amazing. Some of my favorites are taking walks (helps calm my mind so much!), art journaling, prayer time, and always a fan of spreading kindness!
