Things I do to practice Self Care

Self care is a concept that has been floating around for a while now, and I'm a firm advocate. One of the most important things I learnt at university was to enjoy spending time alone, and I definitely practised alot of self care whilst I was living in Canterbury. Self care is something I do when I'm feeling a little low, and can feel myself getting stressed. If I take a moment to treat myself with a bit of care then everything else will be that little bit easier.

Read a good book

Reading has, and probably always will be, one of my favourite past times. If I'm feeling a bit under the weather, or if I've had a bad day, snuggling up with a book is definitely something I'll choose to do. I love wrapping up in a blanket and getting stuck into a good read.

Have a hot bath

Having a hot bath is bound to make me feel better. If I've had a bad day, or I'm feeling especially tired, I usually turn to my bath tub for some comfort. I try not to have too many baths because I know it can be a huge waste of water, so when I do have one, I tend to treat myself with a lush bath bomb which adds to the relaxing atmosphere.


Usually when I'm run down, my whole body takes a hit. One of the things I do to practice self care is to give myself a pamper. I might use a face mask or just use one of my more expensive products. This isn't something I'd do as often as I'd like so perhaps this winter I'll find some time to use a face mask and relax.

Have one of my favourite dinners

When you're feeling run down, you should probably head straight for a healthy nutritious dinner but sometimes that just won't cut it. If I'm in need of a little self care, I'll cook one of my favourite dinners - probably spag bol or sausage and mash.

Self care is so important. If we don't look after ourselves, it's all too easy to get run down and then everything else in your life begins to slide. I know for me, at least, my relationships and work ethic, are all intertwined with my well-being so practising self care is incredibly important.

Do you practice self care?
