Self-care is all the rage on the internet right now and I think that’s great. If we are to build up and encourage others, then we need to make sure we are looking after ourselves. Last week, I wrote a post on things to do when you’re feeling down and I promised to share my January self-care checklist with you. A list like this is a really good way for me to keep track of all the things I’ve done to keep my emotional and mental well-being healthy.
JANUARY SELF-CARE CHECKLIST
have a lush bath
have a social media free day
read make a healthy lunch make a healthy dinner nose strips
light a new candle
go for a walk listen to Christian music watch a film bake buy flowers go to the library
So I achieved around 75% of this list which is pretty good. I’m quite disappointed in myself that I did not have one full day away from social media, though. The things I didn’t achieve will automatically make it onto my self-care checklist for February and there are some things that I definitely want to do more than once. I really want to go back to the library and maybe grab some audiobooks, and I’d like to go on more walks than once a month with Joel – especially since we have set a goal to hike 10 times this year.
What does self-care look like to you? Tell me in the comments what you will be doing in February to take care of yourself!
