When I was still working a full-time job and going through my health crisis, I remember coming home from work, helping Stepson with homework, making dinner, cleaning up, running downstairs to draw a bath, jump in, and was like… OK… RELAX… GO!

And then it hit me… WHO does this? This is not self-care and this certainly isn’t relaxing. I knew there had to be a better way.

It took a lot of time and reflection to give myself permission to engage in self-care.  It always seemed so… indulgent. Or expensive. I mean… who has the money to get a massage all of the time, right?!?

But self-care isn’t about being hedonistic. It’s about taking care of yourself – mind, body, and spirit. It’s about filling up your own cup so that you can be present and available to fill up everyone else’s.

That being said, I’ve compiled a list of 75 self-care activities. Read through them and pick the ones that most speak to you. The majority of these activities are either free or at a minimal cost. I purposefully wanted this list of self-care activities to be easy for you to do!
