Self - Care ideas ♡

fadedangelfadedangel Posts: 263 The Mix Regular
Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself - sometimes known as self-love - as it produces positive feelings and boosts your confidence and self-esteem. Also, self-care is necessary to remind yourself and others that you and your needs are important too. 

A few ideas from me to get you started: 
1. Find a new hobby or revisit an old one 
2. Read fiction for an hour 
3. Write a limerick or a haiku 
4. Buy a colouring book and crayons - adult colouring books are a really good therapy 
5. Read a magazine 
6. Make time for meditation in your day 
7. Do some art (drawing, painting or any other kind) 
8. Take a break from social media 
9. Call a friend or family member, just to say hi
10. Make yourself a fancy coffee drink 
11. Listen to songs that remind you of happier times 
12. Watch your favourite film or tv program 
13. Do some gardening
14. Do some baking - you can try something new or bake your old favourites 
15. Just let go, dance around your room or sing your heart out to some music 

“Put yourself at the top of your to-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place”

What do you do to self-care?

    I dunno if this counts. But I want to make a more of a concious effort to find a hobby. And let myself enjoy stuff and sometimes think self hate stops me from letting myself enjoy something. So will try self love and self care in that sense

    And have a nice meal. Treat yourself for once
    I'm a fruit loop. 🍊➰

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Has anyone got a Jade Face roller? 

    Apperently thats meant to be really theraputic and relaxing. And its suppose to thin your face, give good blood curcliation, make skin cleaner, anti aging, decreases puffyness and aapperently helps with dark circles under eyes. 

    I want one

    These do sound cool :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
    '' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    Lovely thread idea! 

    My favourite self care idea has to be a movie night, love putting on a good film with snacks and zoning out for a bit!

    Love all of the ideas mentioned above also  <3

    Hi @Shaunie

    I have one, I've only used it once so I'm yet to discover the full effects of it but I do find it rather therapeutic. Especially if I'm not feeling well it can be quite relaxing and therapeutic as it stays rather cool so feels quite soothing and it takes my mind off things when I'm rolling my face

    This is a great idea for a thread. The best self care activity for me is running. I always feel so much better for it. Yoga also really works for me.

    I love the Garnier moisture bomb masks. With face masks I think a lot of it is experimenting which work for you and depends on your skin needs
