Top Self Care Gifts From Me to Me

AD | The notion of self care has taken the world by storm over the last few years. Which is pretty ridiculous when you think that we’ve had to be reminded over and over again to take care of ourselves better? It seems like an obvious thing but so many of us neglect our basic self care needs. I’ve been on my own self care journey and have discovered so much about myself. Including the importance of treating yo’ self! So today I’m going to share my top self care gifts I like to treat myself with!

The thing I love about self care is that it can mean anything you need it to mean. And treating yourself on a self care basis is so versatile. From one day to the next, our self care needs can change so dramatically. So here’s my top 10 self care gifts I like to treat myself to on a regular basis, some physical things and some not!

My top self care gifts from me to me (or you to you!)

1. A yummy Yoga practice

Do I ever go a day without mentioning Yoga? But that’s because for me, Yoga is my biggest form of self care. I honestly don’t know how I got through life without it before. Yoga is always my go-to self care treat. And being as I practice from home, it doesn’t have to cost a penny either! There are so many incredible practices that I can give myself exactly what I need. Sometimes that’s a slow, gentle practice. Sometimes it’s sweating it out!

2. Food (mostly pizza)

I love food. Food makes me happy. I eat a lot of it. And I just love it. So naturally, food would definitely make my list of top 10 self care gifts I like to treat myself to. Especially on days when I’m feeling a little low or fragile, food is another one of my go-to remedies. Domino’s Pizza is my absolute favourite takeaway and I never feel bad for treating myself when I know it’s exactly what I need.

3. Herbal remedies or natural products

I’ve mentioned a few times before how I use herbal remedies for my anxiety. I understand this isn’t for everyone but for me, it’s a really important part of my self care routine. Noticing when my anxiety is peaking and actively acting on that with some new products. I’m also really into bath salts and natural bath products at the moment too, which also help with not only my anxiety but aches and pains from Yoga too!

To kill two birds with one stone, Curated Wellness Co are soon to be offering CBD oil subscription boxes for energy, sleep, energy and recovery. Which to me, are all incredibly important elements of self care. If like me, you’re interested in herbal remedies for anxiety or just general well-being, then subscribe to a CBD monthly box, reap the benefits and boost your self care!

4. Have a nap

Sometimes when you’re feeling low, you just can’t be arsed with even trying to make yourself feel better. So a nap is the perfect solution to this. I always treat myself to a nap when I’m feeling low or lacking energy. Who cares what time of day it is or what I’ve got left to do on my to-do list? There’s always tomorrow to try again.

5. A long gaming session

I love gaming and for me, it’s one of the only ways I can genuinely and wholeheartedly switch off from the world. I love the immersion factor. The characters. And how involved you have to be. I’ve been obsessed with Red Dead Redemption 2 since it’s release last year and I’ve lost hours playing that game. But I’ve enjoyed every single second so for me, that’s a successful self care treat.

6. A book (even though I have enough already)

I mean… nobody can have too many books can they? Something as simple as a new book is a lovely self care treat in my opinion. And if I’m low on cash (or spent it all on the pizza I was talking about) then a trip to the library is just as good. Immersing myself among books is always a good way to dial inwards and focus on self care.

What are your top self care gifts that you like to treat yourself to? Any on this list? Let me know!

    These are some great simple self care ideas. For me a long bubble bath is my go-to, it helps me relax and gives me some much needed alone time. I’m a foodie too and will sometimes treat myself with a takeaway or snack. My favourite is Pizza Express takeaway as they do a delicious vegan cheese.

    1. I love a nice long bath but itโ€™s just too hot at the moment to get in!
