Self-Care Sunday: 15 Ideas for Spending the Day

slow, creative joy retreat

Today, instead of sharing one way to practice self-care, I’m sharing a list of ways. Below is a round-up of my and other people’s pieces on ideas for practicing self-care on this Sunday and beyond.

  1. Carve out some down time.
  2. Listen to yourself.
  3. Listen to this beautiful self-love visualization.
  4. Connect to a loved one — call them, write them a letter, invite them for a quick cup of coffee or tea. Cultivate your friendship in some way today.
  5. Connect to your wild, authentic voice.
  6. Try these mantras.
  7. Nourish your creativity by reading, signing up for a class, trying something new, making something more interesting and giving yourself permission to play.
  8. Read this powerful poem.
  9. Remember what is true.
  10. Explore what you must do.
  11. Write down your personal definition of self-care.
  12. Spend some time contemplating the seven most important lessons you’ve learned so far.
  13. Create a list of nourishing activities, and do one activity today.
  14. Eat mindfully, reminding yourself of the miracle of food.
  15. Start creating a play-book for yourself or a loved one.

I hope you find something that resonates with you in the list above. Or do anything today that brings you joy. Happy Sunday!
