Simple Living

Practise Self-Care every day

Welcome to my ‘Simplify your life’ series.

In case you missed it, be sure to read my first post in this series, where I share more tips on how to declutter your life.

Today I am sharing my ideas on how you can practice Self-Care every day.

Self-care is all about the little things you do to treat yourself, and it’s about knowing yourself, so it can be something different for everyone.

It can be the simplest thing that can take no more than 5 minutes or something bigger you maybe need to plan ahead.

With that being said, I’m sharing here my version of self-care.

Those are 45 self-care ideas you are welcome to use in your self-care routine, but I encourage you to

create your own list of ideas with what works for you.
