Self Care Ideas
Social Media is so much fun to be on! You can check in on your friends and family or scroll on Pinterest for hours. However, sometimes social media makes you feel jealous when your scrolling through instagram. Let me tell you this there is nothing to be jealous about because social media is the highlight reel of someone's life. We end up being jealous and comparing our lives to others.
One of my favorite self care ideas is to spend a few hours away from my phone and take a deep breath and go do something. Another thing I enjoy is editing my social media feeds and removing any negativity in my life. What I mean by that is I remove anybody that makes me feel less than or promoting something that I don't need in my life.
2. At Home Spa Day
I love doing at home spas! It's so relaxing to lounge around in your cozy robe and have your candle next to you while you do your nails and face mask.
Here are my must have's for my at-home spa day that your can add to you self care routine.
3.CREATE A SELF CARE KIT
Create the ultimate self-care kit! Put all your favorite things that help you relax in a box or a basket. You can include socks, photos, candles, lip balms, albums, or a book.
4. LISTEN TO YOUR FAVORITE ALBUM
Girl, put your record on and blast your music and sing your heart out. Nothing boosts my spirits when I sing and shake my booty!
I love adding bubbles to my bath it is very relaxing and it makes it 10x better when you add essential oils. If you live in a dorm or anywhere without a tub use a shower bomb.
I found this self-care idea helpful. It helps me connect with my true feeling. I promise you'll feel so relieved to let go of harboring feelings.
This self-care idea is not for everybody. But go for a run and listen to your favorite music while working out.
Just takes some time to inhale and exhale to practice mindfulness.
9.DRINK YOUR FAVORITE TEA OR COFFEE
Have some quiet time while you drink your favorite tea or coffee. I'm not sure if it's only me but I love looking out the window while I drink my tea. it's soothing and allows me to process my feelings.
Nothing feels better than getting rid of stuff that you no longer need. It'll feel like a weight off your shoulders when you reorganize.
I recently began asking myself every morning who and what I am grateful for. By doing this it makes me appreciate what I have currently in my life instead of comparing and focusing on lack. I began to notice when I began gratitude and not focusing on lack of things in my life started to grow like relationships and my blogging life flourished. I would recommend adding this to your self-care routine.
12.HAVE A CUDDLE SESSION WITH YOUR PET
Petting your pets have been proven to improve a positive mindset. If you don't have a pet try visiting a shelter.
13.Listen to a podcast
Find a podcast that may interest you. There are tons of free podcasts on your iPhone, Spotify, and Youtube. A few of my favorite podcasters that I have added into my self-care routine.
Go bake your favorite goodies. You improve your skills and at the end have a delicious treat.
15. WATCH YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE
Put on your favorite movie and cuddle into your favorite blanket. I highly recommend any Disney movie. It always boosts my spirit and makes me feel like a little kid!
This may sound a bit weird, but it's important to play and let loose. I encourage you to play and find out what makes you feel like you were when you were a child. I found this article about playing with your inner child and I found all of these activities so much fun.
Go to the dollar store and get a coloring book. Study shows that coloring can actually relax your brain.
18. TALK TO SOMEONE
Go talk to someone who you trust. If you are going through something there is always someone that will be there for you.
Use positive affirmations to remind yourself of who you are. For example, mine is I am strong, confident, and beautiful.

Curl up and reread your favorite book or a self-motivating book on happiness.
My current favorite books:
