You guys know I love self-care. And it can change on any type of day, sometimes you need something different than yesterday to make you feel good. Its all about tuning into what your body, and mental health requires in that moment.

Here’s some of my favourite self-care rituals that always keep me going..


  • Making a cup of tea
  • Having a hot bath
  • Treating myself to a sweet treat
  • Doing yoga
  • Having a lie-in
  • Getting into bed to relax but not sleep through the day
  • Watching a favourite show
  • Seeing my family
  • Making the effort to wear makeup
  • No makeup days
  • Wearing clothes that make me feel great
  • Not bothering about my appearance
  • Getting lost in a book
  • Turning my phone off
  • Listening to my favourite songs
  • Lighting a candle
  • Eating lots of fruit and veg
  • Connecting with others online
  • Painting my nails
  • Stretching
  • Meditating
  • Playing with my dog on the floor
  • Going for a walk
  • Watching a film I love and have already seen to comfort me
  • Buying myself flowers for no reason
  • Writing in my journal
  • Cooking or baking something for me to eat
  • Getting myself a Starbucks
  • Being silly, laughing, dancing, feeling carefree
  • Looking at old photos


Do you do any of these too, is there something else I need to add to my list?

  • This is a great list, I definitely have a few of these on mine too! What’s your favourite show at the moment? I’m in the middle of a season but I”m always on the look out for new ones!

    These are all awesome rituals. I love taking a hot bath in the winter time, it can make everything so relaxing.

    • Bath time is honestly one of my favourite parts of the day xx

  • Such an awesome list! I do the majority of them as well — but I’d say my favorite is going through old photos because I start laughing or smiling to myself like a weirdo hehe

    • I really want to start printing out more recent photos too!

  • This is the perfect list! Going for a walk followed by a cup of tea is just one of the best things <3xx

    Blankets, a cup of tea and a good book is just the best! I think the thing I do most often is have a bath, literally my favourite way to relax
