I feel like the term “self-care” has been used a LOT lately. The second you want to get your nails done, you’re having a self-care care day. I’m all for it. There’s nothing better than doing a few simple things that make yourself feel better. I think self-care can be small or big, some are even free, or cost little money to accomplish. These small things can help to boost your mood, boost your confidence and even help release some stress. Here is a few of my favorite quick and easy self care tips and tricks to try when I’m in need of a pick me up.
9 Self-Care Ideas To Try For A Mental Boost
Grab A Coffee & A Treat
There’s something about sitting at a cute coffee shop, enjoying a delicious treat that makes me find a little peace. Whether you enjoy being a
Get A Manicure
I RARELY go to the nail salon because I’m all about the
Take A Yoga Class
Or really any workout class. The instant endorphin boost you get after a workout is always worth it. You will NEVER regret taking a workout class and personally, I love a good yoga class. It’s a great way to relax and connect with your mind. You’ll also probably sleep better too which is a win-win.
Soak In A Bubble Bath
Drawing a hot bath and taking a little time for yourself will guarantee relaxation. Bring a book for a little added boost! Oh, or a glass of wine, either work. And this bath tray is perfect to hold your wine, your kindle and a candle!
Take A Walk
Or just get outside really. Sometimes fresh air and a good walk can make you feel better. I always feel refreshed from the exercise aspect of it but also just being active feels great. Whenever I’m starting to get overwhelmed with work and emails, or just need a mental break from writing, I grab Pork and head outside for a quick walk around the block. She may not even need to go out, but it does wonders for my mood and attitude!
Have A Dance Party
You know there are those songs that just get you excited to get up and dance a little. Well, put it on and dance! Even just a good throwback playlist that you can sing along to will get your mood feeling better. Last week for me it was a little Spice Girls. Singing along to old classics always makes you feel great.
Call A Friend
We tend to avoid phone calls these days, but honestly, a good old-school phone conversation with a friend can help boost your mood and help with self-care. Pick up the phone and give a close friend a call. You’ll not only feel better, but they will too! And there’s no need to have some long convo, just a few minutes to catch up and say hi, is plenty. You’d be surprised how much more connected and fulfilled you will feel after a phone call or FaceTime with a friend instead of just shooting off texts.
Do A Little Shopping
Some people may not recommend retail therapy, but I am HERE FOR IT. Online shopping is one thing, but walking around a store and picking something out and actually taking it home in a nice bag feels so much better than opening a UPS box. I like to visit local boutiques, or shops that have great little pieces to browse and discover. No need to try on clothing, just a fun trinket or a new candle will do the trick. Although shoes, shoes always make me feel great!
Have A Spa Day At Home
One of my favorite things to do is have a little pretend spa day at home. Taking a long shower or bath, followed by doing a full at home facial (follow my at home facial tips here) and a mani pedi. You’ll be feeling your best in no time!
