Hey readers,

Sometimes life can be stressful or we don’t look after ourselves. A way to help when life gets on top of us is practice something positive to do for ourselves to help make sure that you as a person are cared for. Below I have gathered 50 ways to do self care, the activities are a mixed bag and some are free some may require some cash. Others don’t take long compared to other activities that can take longer. Therefore, there is plenty of choice for you to choose from to help you feel good and making sure that you DO self care on yourself. It is important to look after others but ultimately you need to make sure that you as an individual are in tip top shape. Enjoy!

  1. Love these ideas. When I was away on holiday the other week I realised how much I had missed reading. I never seemed to have the time before, but now I am setting aside some time, every night before bed to enjoy reading my current book of choice and I love it. Thanks for joining us at #TriumphantTales, hope to see you again next week. X

  3. Ooh I love this. Some great ideas. I think sometimes as parents we can feel like we are being a bit self indulgent but if you feel relaxed and revitalised surely you will be more relaxed around your kids. Cat gifs are the way forward! #thesatsesh

  4. There are some fab suggestions here.I have actually done, go for a walk, have a hot tea and write a blog post all this morning. And I do feel much better. Sometimes it is easy to forget Self Care is easy to achieve and doesn’t need to be complicated. Thank you for joining us at #ThursdayTeam.
