Steps for Self-Care

We thought we’d share some ideas on how we like to treat ourselves; some self-care ideas –and ask you what do you do to treat yourself?

Self-care is often talked about but what does it really mean? It can be different for everyone – for me, I like to do something on my own, in a quiet space, usually a good book, some snacks and maybe a cheeky margarita. But sometimes self-care is about going for a long dinner with my bestie, talking about everything under the sun and having a good catch up, without interruptions. For others self-care might be as simple as getting your nails done (I’m all about a good pedicure); or spending time with family and friends. Here’s some examples Jo and I put together for when you’re need for some self care.

Ideas for self-care!

Take a bath (or shower), with a candle, dim lighting – and get yourself a bath bomb or shower steamer in a scent you love. Zone out, breathe and relax.

Go on a picnic! Pack up some nibbles, maybe a little bottle of something delicious, find a nice spot and enjoy!

Read a book – craft a little nest on the couch (or bed, no judgement here) have snacks handy and dive in.

Take yourself off on a nature walk – get outside and get those endorphins going!

Buy (or pick) yourself some flowers and pop them somewhere you’ll see them every day.

Turn up your favourite tunes and DANCE!

RAOK – that’s a random act of kindness – treating someone else makes our day! Shout someone a coffee, give a stranger a compliment, let someone in while in traffic, donate some clothes (bonus you get a tidier living space too)…

Have a nap.

And our cheeky last one – subscribe to a Little&Luxe box – you’ll get 4-6 treats every month! 😉
