“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It’s sanity.” – Katrina Mayer

Just a heads up, some of these suggestions will be cliche, but honestly that is because they have been known to actually help me personally.

Practice Self Love: Let’s get this list started

Here are 9 ways you can practice self love and in some cases be productive as well.

1.  Take a shower or bath.  (Yes, it’s cliche but being clean always helps me feel better)

2. Do a face mask. A detox or hydration mask are perfect for times like this. Plus, who doesn’t love healthy looking skin? I really enjoy using the hydration mask and the sebum clearing mask from Dermalogica. Their products are vegan and highly concentrated so a little goes a really long way.

3. Read a book. Have a book you’ve been wanting to read a book thats just sitting on your shelf? Have you been eyeing a certain ebook online? (I’m looking at you Mind hunter). Then treat yourself and read that damn book!

4.  Enjoy a hot beverage. I don’t know about you guys but I find herbal tea so relaxing (Tetley has a lot of great and affordable teas).  (Ask my husband, I have at least 20 different kinds of it in the cupboard).

5.  Clean out your inbox Cleaning out my emails makes me feel highly productive. Spend some time sorting your emails into folders, deleting ones you no longer need and unsubscribe to emails you no longer want to receive.

wait! There’s more

6. While you’re cleaning out your inbox why not respond to all those emails I know some people let their emails pile up so why not conquer that pile, and respond to those emails.

7. Cook something newIf you’re anything like my husband than your go to is chicken fingers and fries. Why not take this chance to try something out of your comfort zone? Seen a recipe online that you thought looked amazing? Than give it a try!

8.  Organize your closet I know how mornings can be, rush, rush, rush. Why not give yourself a hand and have some outfits already set up?. Live in a place that gets seasonal conditions? Than organize your closet accordingly. With Autumn around the corner it will be sweater time.

9.  Watch a movie or new show. Have you been eyeing that new movie on Netflix? Have a show you’ve been wanting to watch? Why not give it a go. You may actually enjoy it. If you have Disney + then I highly recommend “The Mandalorian” or “The Emperors new groove”

What do you do to practice self love? Let me know down in the comments below.

Till next time friends,

  1. Great post. Self love is definitely needed. Sometimes it is so hard to find the time to do so. I love tea, it is totally relaxing but I have not done a facial cleanse in so long. Yes and cleaning and organizing your closet is good too. Great tips.

    1. It does feel like you’ve accomplished something doesn’t it? Small pleasures I suppose πŸ˜‰

  2. Great post! My go to for self love is SLEEP. Most especially after those long days at work. It’s easy to feel so overwhelmed. I love the clearing the inbox one because some days I clear it and it makes me feel great.

    1. It really feels like you’ve accomplished something when you clean out your inbox. I’ve had insomnia since I was in my early teens (now 31) so sleeping is difficult for me. Thanks for reading! <3

    1. Thanks, it can definitely make things interesting, sometimes it can be delicious other times a complete flop. Either way its an experience. Lol

  3. I adore the quote that you started with. It’s amazing! I also love the simplicity of these self-love techniques. It’s amazing how much better you can feel when you’ve done something to invest in yourself.

    1. Thanks Emma, that’s very kind of you. Funny, I was actually going for “easy”. Even doing something small can change how you feel πŸ™‚

  4. I seriously needed this post after today! Thank you for all of the great ideas! Self care is so important and sometimes you need to be reminded by someone else that it’s okay to take care of yourself and put yourself first! <3

  5. Love these tips! Often it’s the small acts of self-love that make the biggest difference. And no judgement from me – I have tons of different teas in my cabinet too πŸ™‚

    1. Lol, I’m obsessed with the store “David’s Tea “. Every time I go in I end up with free tea, haha.

  6. Looking after myself is always a mix of getting things organized, like clearing my inbox out – it feels so good and gives me an idea of what I need to manage and things just for me like a face mask or a hot bath. I’ve definitely noticed that the weeks I look after myself I feel better about myself. Caring for myself reminds me I am worth caring for.
