Self-care is an important part and plays a big role when it comes to your mental health. Without getting the proper self-care, it could cause your mental health to dwindle, which could lead to some pretty other harmful effects.
Everyone has their own definition of what self-care is to them. There is no one way to do it. One person may look at laying in bed all day as self-care, while someone else could see doing fun little projects as self-care. It is something that is personal to you and no matter how you do it, it’s essential to add to your everyday life. This is why I’m sharing some self-care activities for you today!

As I said in the beginning, self-care is different for everyone, but there are tons of different options to choose from. Some of these activities you might not have realized were a form of self-care, but I felt it was important to add to the list. Some of these things should be applied to daily life and some can become interchangeable. However you do it, just make sure you’re taking time for self-care to help aid in positive mental health.
Do you have a favorite self-care activity? Let me know in the comments!
Great list! I like to get a pedicure or massage when I can for self-care. I don’t always have time to go somewhere, so I also do face masks and watch my favorite shows.
I need to get pedicures. I’m not the best at doing my toes, plus the experience is just nice lol. I definitely plan on doing more face masks in the near future!
