My Favorite Self-Care Activities

Earlier this year, I was able to partner with the Self Care Catalysts through the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network. In doing so, I wrote a post titled, " Daily Little Accomplishments + The Self-Care Movement."

In that post, I talked about the difficulties that some people living with a chronic illness might endure, as well as the importance of self-care.

"Self-care is just as important as breathing. If we aren't able to take care of ourselves, how are we ever going to be able to take care of anyone else? This still applies even if you haven't received a diagnosis for a chronic illness. Each of us needs to learn to not only accept ourselves, but to care for ourselves too."

It's been months since I've said this, but I still believe that it applies 100% of the time!

So, in an effort to take better care of myself, I've created a list of my favorite self-care activities! And hopefully, this post will encourage you to do the same!

My Favorite Self-Care Activities:

  1. Cuddling with my fur babies
  2. Enjoying a couple episodes of my favorite shows on Hulu or Netflix
  3. Reading a good book
  4. Going to Starbucks or Panera
  5. Pampering myself
  6. Reading and writing in my accomplishments journal
  7. Drawing and coloring
  8. Playing board games or games on my phone
  9. Getting all dressed up
  10. Cleaning up, whether it's myself or my house

There are so many different forms of self-care, so it's important to note that not everything that works for me will work for you! Instead of getting all dressed up and going out, you may find happiness in buying yourself a new pair of pajamas and laying around the house!

No matter what your preferred form of self-care is though, make sure that you're making the time to practice it!
