glow up weekly 04: self care day

hey frens! I am loving this fun series and I hope you are too πŸ™‚ today I’m going to be talking about self care and having a self care day. read on for freebies and tips that you can incorporate into your life!

if you’re new, check out the intro post to this series here πŸ™‚


setting aside a self care is a great time to relax, rejuvenate, and ease stress. I would highly recommend it! you can use it as a time to pamper yourself, work on hobby’s you enjoy but haven’t had a lot of time for, or destress and relax with nothing to do.

first you’ll need to set aside a day for self care. since it’s summer it’ll probably be easy since most of us don’t have a ton of commitments! once you decide the day, you’ll need to decide what to do. I wrote a list of ideas – select what you want to include!

☐ mani/pedi

☐ watch a favorite movie

☐ curl up with a book

☐ light a candle

☐ make tea/coffee

☐ face mask

☐ shower and shave

☐ go for a walk or bike ride

☐ do some yoga/stretching

☐ bake something yummy

☐ listen to a new podcast

☐ try a new makeup look

☐ clean your room

☐ journal about anything!

☐ catch up on all your favorite blogs and youtube channels

☐ delete social media for the day

☐ go to a new coffee shop or cafe and order something fun

☐ drink lots of water

☐ take a long, warm shower (and put a few drops of essential oil in before you start the water for a spa like feeling)

☐ take care of your skin/do your skincare routine

☐ write a list of things you’re thankful for

☐ call a family member or friend and tell them you love them

I actually posted a list of self care ideas a couple months ago, so check that out for some extra inspo!

obviously these are just ideas and you can include whatever you want!

time for FREEBIES!
