1. I love all these self care ideas. I am going to try and make a weekly self care Sunday one of my goals for the new year. I think it will help me get in the right headspace before starting each week. I am also starting counselling, which I am also super excited about. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas to help improve mental health!

    1. Hi Jackie, That sounds like an amazing way to start the new year. I know you’ll enjoy it and it will help you start each week feeling great xo

  2. Self care on sundays are so essential moreso because Sundays are more of no schedules just going with flow. Routines are definitely a great thing. I’m gonna try some these tips

    1. For sure! I’d love to know what self care ideas you try and what you like best!

  3. Such great ideas!

    I just finished reading Atomic Habits-loved it! My perfect self care Sunday definitely involves reading something uplifting and spending as much time as I can outdoors! I am going to have to give that foot massage a try as well πŸ˜‰

    Great post! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Krissy! A great read isn’t it?! sounds like the perfect Sunday – and oh yes! That foot massager is magic πŸ™‚

  4. I’m always talking about how important self-care is! It’s great seeing more and more people talking about it. I love how you split the self care activities into short and long, its great that people understand that practicing self-care isn’t just having a bath for 10 minutes. There is so much more to it. Thank you for writing this πŸ™‚ Love your blog!

  5. I LOVE how you broke these self-care ideas into time groups! I feel like on some Sundays I have plenty of free time and other Sundays I can spare 15 minutes. Thank you for giving me a bunch of great self-care ideas.

  6. This is very important! There are very new ideas that I will consider adding to my self care routine. I find self care sunday really important for the week ahead.

  7. Some great ideas for even just adding a little more self care into daily routines too

  8. Lot’s of amazing tips! I always say I need a break from the kids haha, but when I have any sort of self care extended period of time it always includes them. They love to learn new ideas too.

    Self care is a struggle of mine. I spend all of my time working or trying to care for others. I love that many of these options don’t need a lot of set up and can be achieved easily, though they still provide self care benefits.

  10. Wow, what a nice spread of different ideas! I made February my designated self-care month!

    1. Hey Evelyn! A designated self care month sounds incredible! I hope you enjoy every minute and find some new ways to feel good πŸ™‚

  11. These are such great self care ideas. I take a few minutes for myself in the morning. I get up early and drink my coffee with my feet in a foot massager for 15 minutes.

    1. Hi Lizzie! A foot massage every morning sounds fantastic! I have one too so I’m going to give this a try tomorrow with my morning tea. Thanks for the idea πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Rosemary! Sometimes we have to be mindful about adding self care to our routine so that it actually happens!

  12. Hi Yolanda,
    Great post. I’m going to try several of these ideas for rest and relaxation!

    1. Hi Linda, Thanks so much. I hope you enjoy your Sunday!!

  13. I love how simple so many of these are!!! Lots of ideas here ☺️

    1. Hey Megan! Thanks. That’s what I tried to show – that we can truly look after ourselves without a lot of effort. xo

  14. Being a tourist in your own city is a great idea – I live in Las Vegas, so I have no excuse not to do this πŸ˜‚

    1. Hi Serena, Oh yes! You can be the ultimate tourist in Vegas. So much fun!

  15. These are such wonderful ideas! I especially like the gratitude journal and the mindful walk ideas. I need to get the calm app too! I really needed a reminder to take time out for myself! Thank you!

  16. I work too much on weekends. I need to get better at balancing. That foot massager is definitely on my wish list now!

  17. There is something about Sunday afternoons that makes me want to rest and relax. For me, that means making a list of things I want to get done in the next week. It clears my brain so I don’t spend the week trying to figure out what going on and feeling anxious that I’m forgetting things.

  18. This is a great list of ideas. It’s so important to take care of ourselves so that we can take care of the others in our life.

  19. You’ve got some great suggestions! I personally turn to my dog 9 times out of 10 – Whether I’m cuddling her on the couch or taking her for a walk, she always calms me down and makes me feel far better.

    1. Hey Britt, Thanks! I hear you. Dogs provide the best love, comfort and self care πŸ™‚ I’m in love with my fur baby too!
