Self-care has become SUCH a buzzword the past couple years. Which is AWESOME, because it is truly great!—But, it also incorporates much, much more than a bubble bath and face mask (though, we love that to!). It’s all about caring for your mental, emotional, and physical aspects of your health so you keep changing the world and living your most empowered, confident life.
Here are PLENTY of options for your self-care practices to try out this weekend and into the next week!
-Moving your body (whether it’s hiking, dancing, stretching, lifting, or otherwise)
-Food: your balance of nutritious and comforting foods
-Sleep (get those Zzz’s, girl!)
EMOTIONAL + PERSONAL:
-Checking in with yourself
-Understanding your feelings (whether that’s just saying “thank you, bye” to them or needing to work through them)
-Creating core values (what are your non-negotiables in your life?)
-Gratitude practices (writing it down, saying them out loud)
-Creating a practice or routine
-Random acts of kindness
-Time in nature (“treebathing,” hiking, bare feet in the grass…)
-Time with friends
-Good support system
-Boundaries: setting them AND respecting them
HOUSEHOLD + PRACTICAL:
-Chores (what. I know. I know.)
-Home safety and security
-Purging + donating
Let us know in the comments what you're going to do for your self-care practices this week!
