‘You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first”


1.

get a 15 minute chair massage


2.

buy grocery store flowers and arrange them


3.

face mask and a bath before bed


4.

try a new coffee shop with a friend


5.

diffuse essential oils and meditate or close your eyes for 15 minutes. If you’re at work, take a break to apply an essential oil roller ball to the palms of your hands and take a few deeps breaths


There is no doubt that self-care is essential to living a happier life. I love treating myself once in a while to a facial, fancy dinner, or a new splurge item from my wishlist, but thats not realistic on a weekly basis. Its important to find things that don’t cost a fortune so that you can feel good about doing them, often!


6.

listen to a podcast with a cup of tea


7.

take a few extra minutes to make something you really enjoy for breakfast + sit down to eat it without feeling guilty! It will taste better that way:)


8.

FaceTime with your bestie


9.

clean out your DVR - you might find something you want to watch! Now GO! Watch it!


10.

write. I’ve said it a million times…”I don’t have time to make lists”. I’m always going, going, going, and once kids are in the mix this constant sense of urgency can be exhausting and you feel like you’re losing your mind. When I take the time to write down what I need to do for the day/week I feel so much better. My mind is clear.
