Re: Self care ideas!

ok so some ideas that i can think of for self care would be
-listening to music
-learning a new instrument or playing one if you already know how
-making a scrapbook
-painting
-drawing
-card making
-baking something
-doing some dancing
-practice some basketball or netball skills


these might seem like obvious things however spending even 10 minutes doing something you like can be classes as self care activities.
even simple things like
-reading a chapter of a book
-having a bath or shower
-watching a fave tv show or movie
-painting your nails
-giving yourself a hand or foot massage


do any of these things sound ok to you? do you have other ideas that you can think of?

Re: Self care ideas!

I actually didn't think of most of those...
Except for the listening to music, drawing, and painting.

Re: Self care ideas!

These sound great! I'm listening to music right now...

Re: Self care ideas!

alot of people think self care has to be extravagent but really its the simple things or the things you find relaxing, soothing or brings you joy are the ones that have the most effect. since you like craft, maybe you could make a self care scrapbook or poster to remind you of the things you can do?

a suggestion would be to also spend at least 10 minutes (it doesnt have to all be in one go if thats not managable on the day) doing some self care

Re: Self care ideas!

Thanks @scared01. I just went for a swim, and boy was it good! It's so hot and stuffy today. I'm just about to have dinner, so I will chat later on before bed.
Thanks everyone else here too! Smiley Happy

Re: Self care ideas!

So jealous of your swim @xXLexi_Lou122Xx ! I have fond memories of swimming in the pool back at mum and dad's house and finding it extremely calming, no phones or distractions Smiley Happy

 

A self care method that I'm about to do right now - is put on a facemask & clean my room while it's soaking in. Then shower and snuggle in bed with a movie! 

Re: Self care ideas!

that sounds so good! @spacejam what a great way to end the day
