I took an impromptu break from blogging and social media over December. I realised that I needed some time to recharge, and spend time with my friends and family.
Less time looking at screens and more time reading books did me the world of good.
A Self Care Checklist for 2020
Today I’m sharing a Self Care Checklist for 2020. I made this for myself, featuring certain things that I forget to do sometimes (like eating three meals a day), but I realised that this could be useful for other people too.
- Eat three main meals each day
- Go on a 24 hour social media detox
- Find a quiet spot to meditate
- Light an aromatic candle
- Write a gratitude list
- Practice breathing deeply
- Listen to peaceful music
- Read a good book
- Catch up with a friend
- Have a bath
- Spend time outdoors
As I’m growing up and finishing my master’s degree this year, my blog is taking more of a self-care and mental health lifestyle approach, and less ‘student life’. I wrote about my self-care journey, and I definitely think that putting my experiences into words has helped me process things better.
If I could help just one person with their self-care journey or mental health, I’d be happy.
Ideas for using the checklist:
- print it out for your journal
- stick it on your bedroom wall
- set it as your phone wallpaper for a daily reminder
- Or pin it for later?
