It’s been so busy in December between work and everything going on in my personal life, that it’s been hard to make time for self care. And, it’s not practical for me to spend my time or money on things that a lot of people consider self care (like spa days, although I do make room in my budget for a monthly massage). So today I wanted to share thirteen ways I practice self care in practical and realistic ways (that hopefully, I will be better about making the time for in 2019).
Spending time reading a book rather than scrolling
Taking an extra long shower or a bubble bath
Going for a walk by myself (without Vinnie who stops every five seconds to sniff)
Meditation (which I haven’t done at all in December)
Lighting a candle or turning on the diffuser
Watching a guilty pleasure show (currently working my way through Reign)
Snuggles with Vinnie
Cooking and baking
Take a short nap
Spending time stretching out the tight spots
Giving my self a manicure
Cozying up with a blanket and tea
What are some easy, realistic ways you work self care into your everyday life?
