15 Self Care Ideas For Busy Women

1. Start Your Day With Meditation.  When you close your eyes and just meditate on the breath, it can be relaxing.  Yes it takes practice but it can reduce your stress and anxiety when practiced on a daily basis.

2. Get the Proper Sleep. Go to bed early. There is nothing wrong with turning in early and getting some much needed rest.  Say no to all those tasks, they will still be there tomorrow.

3. Listen To a Podcast.  There are so many great podcasts for relaxation, motivation and or perhaps you just need a good laugh.  Seek and search and you will find the perfect podcast!  May I suggest my podcast – entitled the “Motivation Zone”

4. Get a Massage or Facial.  Be pampered for a day.  It’s relaxing, refreshing and it always feels great when someone else is pampering YOU.


5. Walking in Nature. Take a walk in the morning and listen to the silence. Absorb the sights, sounds and scents all around you.  It’s soothing to the soul. (My favorite self care therapy)

6. Find a New Hobby or Revisit An Existing One.  Try painting, photography, knitting or why not step out of your comfort zone and take some lessons and learn to play an instrument.

7. Dance.  Dance like no one is watching.  It will put a smile on YOUR face and release those happy hormones.  Give it a try.

8. Help Others.  Carry a grocery bag for an older person, pay for someone’s coffee, open a door, show those pearly whites and smile, I guarantee they will smile back.

9. Work On a Jigsaw Puzzle.  This is not only relaxing but it allows you to focus on something else outside of ourselves.

10. Unplug From Electronics. Switch everything to airplane mode and free yourself from the constant bings of social media and email.

11. Go Cloud-Watching. Lie on your back, relax, and watch the sky.  Remember when you used to do this as a kid? Why not bring out that child inside.

12. Remove Toxic People From Your Life.  Toxic people invade our minds, convince us were not good enough and cause us to second guess ourselves.

13. Take a Nap.  Oh the benefits of a 20 minute power nap.  It can do wonders by boosting your memory, creativity, and energy level.

14. Do Something Spontaneous. Go on a hot air balloon ride, rock a new look and get a daring haircut, rent a kayak or why not build a sand castle.

15. Declutter a Small Space or Room. When your space is organized and tidy you stay focused, you are more efficient which lends itself to greater productivity.
