So, once you’ve realised the importance of self care and taking time out for yourself.  What kinds of things can you do?  I’ve put together a list of ideas (by no means exhaustive) ranging from ideas that can be done in 10 minutes to things you can do for a whole day!

Enjoy and please share your own ideas in the comments.

10 minute self-care

  1. Meditate.  Either with your own thoughts or a guided meditation Mp3.  Use crystals, mantra or just your breathing. Just DO it!
  2. Read a chapter of your book. Personal growth or trashy fiction – it doesn’t matter.
  3. Walk around the block.
  4. Dance for 10 minutes to your favourite tracks.
  5. Take a long shower.

30 minute self-care

  1. Take a walk.
  2. Read for half an hour.
  3. Phone a friend.
  4. Have a nap.
  5. Paint your nails / use a facemask.

1-2 hours self care

  1. Get a massage / pedicure / manicure.
  2. Meet a friend for coffee.
  3. Have a bubble bath.
  4. Have a night out with friends.
  5. Create a home spa and indulge yourself.

Whole day self care

  1. Go hiking or rambling – alone or with a friend.
  2. Book yourself a spa day with treatments.
  3. Have a duvet day, relax, drink tea, read and nap.
  4. Spend a day in a different city or area, go to a museum, have lunch out, explore.
