Updated: Nov 19, 2019
Let’s talk about self-care! We all need and love having time for self-care. But sometimes, we may not take the time to practice self-care because we think we need a lot of time to do so. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how long you have, you can and should always make time for self-care!
When we think of self-care we think taking a spa day or vacation and those are nice but not always realistic at the moment. Self-care can be easy, simple, and something you can incorporate into a busy life.
Here are 11 easy self-care practices. And trust us, you have the time! Self-care should be a priority. These are super simple self-care practices that you can sprinkle in anytime, not just a massage or bath.
- 11 Simple Self Care Practices -
1~Stretch, go for a walk, or dance
Simply put: just move your body! Turn on some good music, have an impromptu yoga sesh in your living room or simply get outside and go for a walk.
2~Unplug from social media for a while
Take a break from scrolling and instead focus your attention and time on something that really bring you joy and inspiration.
3~Go outside, be in the Sun
Vitamin D is nourishing for your skin health but also your emotional health as well and can also boost your immune system. Get outside for a few minutes each day!
4~Journal to release your thoughts
Especially on those days when there's a lot going on in your mind, grab a notebook and find a comfy chair to start processing everything on paper. Just this is enough to make a huge difference in how you're feeling.
5~Listen to your favorite podcast~
Podcasts are great ways to learn new information AND find inspiration. The GoddessCeremony Podcast is a great resource for empowering wisdom and inspiring stories (hey, we may be a bit biased but 150 five star reviews on iTunes says we might be onto something!)
6~Diffuse essential oils or light a candle~
Diffuse some lemon and spruce oil for a magical grounding blend or light a candle and take a few deep breaths.
7~Enjoy a hot cup of herbal tea~
Pour a hot cup of red raspberry leaf tea or nettle tea for a nourishing tea that will balance your hormones and support your cycle.
