cup and flowers


We are always on our phones, laptops, iPads, kindles, -whatever else there is out there-.

I don’t know about you, but I often get to 4pm when I have a banging headache (not banging in a good way.. in a literal ‘banging’ way) and I end up leaving my phone in the bedroom away from sight and mind for a few hours, just for a little break. I wanted to challenge myself to compile a lil list of 20 things we can do for OURSELVES that don’t involve screens.

  1. Have a hot bath
  2. Meditate
  3. Go shopping! If you ever need an excuse, I’m your gal…
  4. Read an *actual* book. Or magazine, if you fancy.
  5. Build a pillow fort and eat ice cream. (I seriously *NEED* to do this)
  6. Cook yourself dinner and try new ingredients
  7. Workout… but you don’t have to.
  8. Have a cup of tea chatting to a family member <3
  9. Snuggle your dog. As if you needed me to tell you!
  10. Journal.
  11. Clear your mind by making a to-do list for the week.
  12. Mani/pedi time!
  13. Have a nap. Naps are ace.
  14. Explore a place you’ve never been to.
  15. Go for a walk and leave your phone at home. You won’t have any Instagram images but you will have memories.
  16. Go to McDonalds drive through and pick up an Oreo Mcflurry (my personal fave)
  17. Do an adult colouring book, I find them so so relaxing.
  18. Reorganize your bedroom and have a declutter. It’s also an excuse to do Number 3.
  19. Do a face mask- or two.
  20. Buy yourself some flowers, and pick up another bunch for someone else too if you get the inkling! Who doesn’t love a surprise bunch? If only my BF got the hint, ey?



How do you self-care WITHOUT a screen?
