Self-care ideas!

By Kayla White, M.A. Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Resident in Counseling

If you are anything like me, practicing self-care and self-love can often get placed on the back burner. Also, I am not a proclaimed morning person, so other than those things I NEED to do, I’ve learned they likely won’t get done until I’m awake, have eaten breakfast, taken my dog out and after that I normally start working. I have learned that I practice my self-care at night. Here are some of my favorite night-time self-care ideas!

Bedtime self-care routine ideas: 

  • Here are some self-care ideas for a great nighttime routine:
  • Face mask
  • Hair mask
  • Crossword puzzle
  • Listen to calming music
  • Yoga/stretching
  • Night time tea
  • CBD Oil meditation
  • Knitting
  • Listen to a soothing podcast
  • Pray
  • Journal
  • Bubble bath

Each of these count as self-care. Again, self-care is meant to set you up for SUCCESS. It’s meant to focus on YOU and YOU only. It’s not meant to be shared!
