We all know how important the basic
self-care activities are, such as:
A good sleep, healthy eating,
socializing with friends,
exercising and hobbies.

follow and prioritize self-care, we

Self-care for the winter
As the seasons change, You should
consider changing your self-care
routine, to accommodate the Cold
Season weather, less daylight
hours, your schedule, feelings of
inertia and so on.
As I said, the winter months can be
particularly tough on us both
physically and mentally. You are
more likely to catch annoying colds
and flu and the winter blues. It’s
harder to be active and easier to
make excuses. So, you need some
self-care activities to meet the
specific needs of the darker,
Here are some of my favorite
self-care activities that are
well-suited to winter.
Negative stereotypes about self-care
First though, let’s dispel some
negative stereotypes about
self-care. If you think of
self-care as indulgent or selfish,
you’re thinking about it wrong.
Is self-care about treats or
In short, No it’s not. Some people
who have negative stereotypical
views about self-care often think
of it as about massages, relaxing
facials, or about buying yourself
gifts and treats.
And guess what? Sometimes it is,
however, most of the time self-care
is exactly what’s it says, it’s,
replacing the gym shoes that have
worn out and are causing your feet
to hurt, spending the extra $1 or 2
to make a healthy lunch rather
eating rubbish food, getting to bed
early rather than staying up all
hours watching TV shows for no
particular reason, till all hours,
or even worse, not getting that
niggly muscle or bad tooth not seen
too It’s taking care of You.
How to get Started
Here are the answers for you. You
should try and slow down – no need
to rush and get stressed. Yes, even
if you are Blogging or a stay at
Home Mom, just start taking a
little time for yourself again.
Indeed, Self-care isn’t a list of
behaviors; what constitutes
self-care depends on the situation.
Here’s 16 of the most Important
Tips and Ideas for You.
1 Maybe start a Journal. Release
your feelings and try and move on
to the new day. It’s a New Year.
Start going in a New Direction.
2 Try and enjoy Nature. There is a
lot going on around you if you can
look for it..
3 Get more Sunlight. Don’t shut
yourself away. It’s well known you
feel better in a good light.
4 Relax more. Go on. Get cozy
somewhere. On the Couch or in a big
wrap. Take some minutes for You.
Give yourself permission to relax/
5 Speak to your friends. Yes SPEAK to
them – no Texts
6 Enjoy a pleasing Hot Drink. Treat
yourself. A special Tea, a Herbal
Blend, Cocoa. Sip it slowly and
7 10 Minutes Exercise. It doesn’t
have to be a trip to a Gym. A fast
walk, a few stairs, a cycle ride.
(Outside activities maybe
Find something to raise your pulse
a little. Have a medical check-up
for underlying medical conditions
and know what you can or cannot do.
8 Release your Creative side.
Painting, wooden signs, what would
you like to do again or try. There
is free instruction everywhere.
It’s also related to balance. Make
what’s the best choice for you
Think only Positively
Remember, You might feel guilty or
regretful about your earlier
behaviors, but a self-compassionate
person can acknowledge that
everyone has experiences like that.
You can acknowledge when you’ve
been feeling anxious in the process
of pursuing a meaningful goal and
then talk yourself through how to
move forward with those feelings
rather than giving up.
Often, some people’s idea of
self-care is that it’s something
they do privately, like spending 20
minutes meditating, or staying in
your pajamas on the couch. However,
reaching out to others when you’re
under stress is a behavior that you
can call on.
That means, Self-care involves
letting others into your inner
world a little or actually seeing
or speaking to close friends who
you usually just message on the
Internet. Let out some frustrations
but don’t forget to see how their
day is going to. Maybe you can help
them or relax together.
The bottom line is, You don’t need
to spend money for personal
pampering or withdraw from the
world, or you’ll just miss out on
many types of self-care that are
easily accessible to you.
9. Get Yourself into a Self-Care
Routine – Multi benefits will start
coming your way and your stress

create your World
Use words that empower you rather
than those that limit you.
Instead of saying “I’m suffering” you can say – I’m working on the healing.

Take yourself out on dates and
spoil yourself with your favorite
foods, movies & whatever else you
love to do. This strengthens the
relationship you have with yourself
& invites more love into your life
