Blocking off time in your day to take care of yourself? Yes, please! But, to be honest, sometimes bubble baths and face masks don't cut it for me. Too often I blow off me-time all together because I feel like it can only look one way... but self-care is whatever helps you hit the reset button.
Here are some "different" #selfcare ideas I turn to when I need a pause from my hectic life:
Treat myself to a delicious meal
Cry in the shower
Scroll through my camera roll
Watch my favorite TV show or movie
Lay on the floor
Buy myself a small gift
Wash my sheets
Drink a warm drink
Listen to Christmas music
Check a small item off my to-do list
Clean my makeup brushes
Watch standup comedy
Text a family member or friend and to just say hi or thank them
Indulge in a tasty dessert or drink
While some of these activities might not be #selfcare insta-worthy, they really do help me pause and focus on me. How do you practice self-care? Share below!
