101 Self Care Sunday Ideas

Self care is an integral part of my wellness regimen and I love exploring new ways to keep myself grounded during the day or to de stress after a long day. I am sure I am not the only one out there who struggles with self care and self love. I know that I certainly need help with this! My day is usually filled with tending to the needs of others and if I don’t make time for myself then I can easily come unraveled.

Why self-care Sunday?

Have you ever had a day where you were so busy, you felt like your head was spinning? I have had my share of those days. Sometimes it’s easy to forget to take care of yourself. I think it’s the nature of being a woman to put others before yourself. Another reason is that we live in a culture that is very focused on productivity.

We are always looking for something that will make us more productive. It’s the reason why self-care is not a normal thing. It’s not normal to spend time doing things that make you feel better. But it is very important to take a step back and take some time for yourself. It is so important to take care of your emotional needs. 

Self-care does not have to be expensive or time-consuming. It does not have to be something that you do in a day. It’s an ongoing process. It’s a way of life. It’s a mindset. Self-care is a priority. So, I encourage you to set aside some time to practice self care. I have been doing this for the past few months and it has helped me so much. I have had more energy and I am more productive. I feel more grounded and I am more patient. I am more loving towards myself and others. I am more present and I am more focused. It’s all because I take time for myself.
