10 Things To Add To Your Self-Care Routine

Practicing self-care is so important! Use these ideas to add to your current routine, or start yours with them. Taking care of yourself and your mental health is something you should prioritize, even when you are busy. 


– Create something without an agenda! Paint, knit, start a journal, and so on – with no deadline!

– Try a new recipe. It sounds simple, but really do some research into one that you can add into your rotation that you’ll love again and again is really helpful and fun. Or try going vegetarian for a month!

– Rearrange your furniture! Switch things up a bit. 

– Learn something new, like a new language, how to edit and take good photos, take care of plants, etc.

Treat yourself, if you’re able. Buy a massage, get your nails done, or splurge at the mall.

– Plan a trip, itinerary and everything! Plan out the restaurants you’ll eat at, the places you’ll visit, and so on. 

– Set screen time limits for yourself.

– Organize an area in your home, like your desk, your kids’ playroom, closet, etc.

– Try breathing exercises – they’ve been shown to reduce stress and anxiety in many studies.

– Laugh! Put on a comedy, go to a stand-up show, or watch a recorded one on tv.
