Despite your thoughts about self-care, there’s no doubt that it’s essential for our wellbeing. Whether you take time for a face mask or prioritize going to therapy, self-care can adapt to whatever it is your mind and body need right now. In the past, some GR8NESS members shared their ideas around self-care with us. Today, we want to give you some ideas to create your definition of self-care and rock those #SelfcareSaturday photos on social media.

Self-Care Ideas to Try by Yourself

Sometimes, spending time alone can be all that you need to reset your mind and focus on yourself. Some people might call this selfish, but self-care includes a bit of selfishness to prioritize yourself and help you be at a place that enables you to help others. Of course, you need to be mindful of red flags pointing that your self-care is turning selfish.

Here are some activities you can do when you prefer to ride solo:

  1. Read a book
  2. Enroll in a self-development class
  3. Try meditation
  4. Listen to your favorite podcast
  5. Respond to a therapeutic worksheet
  6. Try an at-home workout
  7. Give yourself a manicure
  8. Create your emergency self-care box
  9. Attempt to cut digital cold turkey
  10. Learn a new breathing technique
  11. Treat yourself to free stuff from your favorite places
  12. Set up an at-home spa
  13. Take a leisurely walk without a goal
  14. Put on a homemade mask and listen to your favorite playlist
  15. Take a nap
  16. Do something crafty
  17. Stare at the water for a few minutes
  18. Light up candles and treat yourself to an at-home aromatherapy session
  19. Do something that you love but haven’t done in a while
  20. Have a stretching session by yourself

Self-Care Ideas to Try with Your Children

If you’re a parent or caregiver, finding time alone can be a challenge. However, don’t let that keep you away from practicing self-care. Many self-care activities can include children and even your pets.

Here are some self-care ideas to try with your children:

  1. Talk to them about self-care habits
  2. Make household chores fun for them
  3. Read an age-appropriate self-development book
  4. Introduce them to journaling
  5. Head to the kitchen and cook their favorite recipes
  6. Call a loved one
  7. Learn something new together
  8. Let them choose the music
  9. Write things about each other and share them
  10. Attempt to finish a puzzle in a specific amount of time
  11. Try a yoga routine together
  12. Watch their favorite movies
  13. Teach them about meditation with a mini session
  14. Have fun learning a new craft
  15. Teach them about acupressure
  16. Take a bubble bath together
  17. Visit some museums around the world
  18. Have a picnic in the house
  19. Write your own story together
  20. Just play!

Self-Care Ideas to Try with A Partner

If you don’t get to spend much time with your partner due to work, involve them in your self-care Saturday plans. Making time for each other while also practicing self-care will strengthen your bond and make sure you’re both in the right mindset to love and support each other.

Here are some self-care ideas you can try with your partner:

  1. Start working out together
  2. Find out the ultimate date night idea based on their love language
  3. Share loving affirmations
  4. Take this quiz to find out each other’s love language style and discuss
  5. Try one of these love-hacks to show them you care
  6. Visit a couples counselor
  7. Fuel your romance with this guide
  8. Take a yoga class together
  9. Try a homemade face mask together
  10. Sign up for an online class
  11. Learn active meditation
  12. Cook a healthy dinner together
  13. Split up your home chores once and for all
  14. Give each other a relaxing massage
  15. Listen to your favorite playlist and dance it out
  16. Get active with fitness videos at home
  17. Sit down and define your relationship
  18. Find out the reasons why you’re always fighting
  19. Celebrate an anniversary earlier
  20. Do something you always did while dating

The Deal with Self-Care

In the end, self-care can be adapted for so many situations. Your Saturday self-care plan will most likely change week over week. The important thing is that no matter what, you continue to find time to focus on self-care. Even if this week you only have 15 minutes to meditate, that’s enough to remind yourself that no matter what’s happening in the world and your life, you’ll still find time to care for you.
