Let’s get into the 25 self-care ideas on the printable self-care bingo card…

1. Go for a long walk

If you don’t walk much, just getting out there for any length of time is great. If you do walk regularly and truly enjoy walking, then treat yourself to a longer carefree walk.

This might mean not bringing your dog who stops and marks their territory every 5 feet, and instead, it’s just you walking – enjoying what’s around you.

2. Have coffee with a friend

Whether it’s out at a cafe or getting together at your house or theirs, the point is to have a good catch-up.

And for you tea lovers or hot chocolate lovers, or heck, wine lovers – you do you 🙂

3. Write 3 things you’re grateful for

Gratitude is a beautiful way to practice self-care – especially if you’re been going through a rough patch. No matter how big or small, write down 3 things you’re grateful for today. 

If this is something that feels good to you – try it daily.

Use a blank journal or notebook or check out this popular gratitude journal that includes some inspirational quotes as well.

4. Listen to some feel-good music

Music is proven to elevate your mood. According to Northshore Community Health System… 

“Music can boost the brain’s production of the hormone dopamine. This increased dopamine production helps relieve feelings of anxiety and depression. Music is processed directly by the amygdala, which is the part of the brain involved in mood and emotions.”

Try making your own playlist or just choose an artist, album, or another playlist you love.

5. Read a good book

Even better, find a time that is completely quiet so you can really get into your book.

Here are some ideas…

  • Take lunch outside and find a quiet spot to read – even if it’s just for 15 minutes
  • Have a bath and bring your book along
  • Listen to an audiobook while in the car – or listen while on a walk
  • Read a chapter first thing in the morning before anyone wakes up

6. Track your mood

Tracking your mod is perfect if you’ve been going through some mental health challenges. 

You can track your mood throughout the day and take note of your activities during this time.

This will help you identify things that make you feel good as well as potential triggers you might want to avoid.

7. Workout for 30 minutes

Working on your physical health is an important way to practice self-care, so do this today and try and keep at it.

Choose anything you like to do – ride a bike, go for a jog, lift weights, try some HIIT training, do yoga.

8. Get a massage

Treat yourself to a professional massage, or see if your partner is willing to give you a massage.

There are also some great self-massage techniques you can try. See the below video for examples.

9. Create a new bedtime routine

Try some new ways to wind down at the end of the day, helping you get into an intentional state of relaxation before bed.

Not only will you begin to look forward to your evening routine, you’ll also sleep better.

Check out some of these evening routine ideas and give one or a few a try.

10. Call a friend for a chat

Or a family member – someone who feels good to connect with.

11. Stay off of social media

That’s right – aim to have a social media detox for a full day. You’ll be amazed how much better you feel about your time so you can be intentional with it.

12. Play a board game

A big part of self-care is ‘social self-care’. Doing something enjoyable with good friends or family is a great way to look after yourself.

13. Do something you’re passionate about

Do you always seem to put off the things you want to do because you ‘never have the time’?

Well, this is your chance to do something you love – and enjoy it.

14. Read some inspiring quotes

Depending on what you need to hear right now, there are so many different quotes you can read and reflect on.

Here are some resources I hope you love:

Each post has an extensive list of quotes I think you’ll love.

15. Watch a motivational TED Talk

TED Talks are such a great way to learn something new or do a little research on something you’re passionate about and there are SO many of them out there – you’ll definitely find something you’re interested in.

Choose a topic you want to learn about and Google it!

16. Drink a healthy smoothie

Here’s an amazing recipe I think you’ll love from ‘Pick Up Limes’ – Cardamom Avocado Blueberry Smoothie

17. Treat yourself to a small gift

This can be:

  • A physical gift
  • An experience
  • A gift of time

18. Use journal prompts

writing in journal

Journal prompts can be used to help in so many areas of your life – practicing gratitude, learning to focus on self-love, or self-reflection.

I have a bunch of journal prompts resources you can try – here are some to get you started:

19. Make your favorite dinner

If you’re the primary cook in the house (and you enjoy cooking), wouldn’t it be nice to just make what you want for a change instead of catering to everyone else’s needs?

This can be a constant struggle especially if you have picky eaters.

Go ahead and made that beautiful dish of yours that you love. Enjoy it on your own or with friends. 

20. Take a fitness class

Either sign up for a class in person or try an online class.

Perhaps try something new you’ve never done before but wanted to?! Belly dancing anyone?

21. Spend time on a hobby

It’s never too late to try a new hobby or pick up the one you already have.

We need time for personal enjoyment and growth and learning new things is so good for our emotional and intellectual self-care.

If you’re starting a new hobby or picking up an old one I’d love to know what it is! Share in the comments below to inspire others.

22. Write a ‘went well’ list

This is such a good exercise, especially if you’re not a fan of to-do lists. At the end of the day, write a list of all the things that went well today – or this past week.

Make sure to list everything from interacting with people, to workplace tasks, to things that went well at home.

Once you make the list (as long as possible) take some time to reflect on each item.

23. Do something creative

Write, draw, do calligraphy, photography, color, read, paint, scrapbooking, crochet, woodworking, bullet journal, play music…

There are so many things out there you can try or get back to. 

24. Stretch before bed

If you don’t already do this – start! It feels so good and is an excellent way to wind down.

Just stretch your body in places that feel stiff and if you need to look up some stretching exercises there are plenty of resources out there.

25. Write some positive affirmations

affirmations written in a notebook

Think about something you need support with right now.

Do you need to…

  • Build confidence
  • Love yourself more
  • Stay focused
  • Improve personal relationships
  • Support your mental health

Whatever it is – write some affirmations that will help you focus on what’s important.
