How to Create a Self Care Routine: Tips and Tricks

In today’s busy world, it can be difficult to prioritize self-care. While some people choose to take time out of their schedules every day to focus on themselves, others find that they need a little extra help in the form of a self-care journal. If you’re not sure how to create and maintain your self-care routine, here are some tips and tricks for getting started.

Find Your Why

Your success in changing your behavior is dependent on your “why”. First, you must have a reason to do your self-care routine. Perhaps you just want to be more relaxed in your daily life. Maybe you desire to be more energetic and give back to others. As long as you have a motivating reason, there is no wrong answer.

Start Small

Many people have high goals for self-care. Many of us have lofty goals for our self-care. We have a list of things that we want to achieve, things we want to do for others, and a vision of how we would be. Start small with your self-care. For example, consider how much water you consume each day. Would you be willing to drink more water? Drinking more water is a good idea. Get a glass of water every morning when you get up.

Improve Your Diet

Although it’s not always easy to do this if you want to make a difference in your life, a healthy diet is a great place to start if you feel your diet needs some work.

Do not beat yourself up about your diet. This is counterproductive to self-care. The typical western diet is full of more sugar, salt, additives, and other chemicals than you need. Instead, be aware of the changes that you need to make, and then start making them.

Get Your Morning Started Right

It’s great to have a self-care routine that you can follow every morning. This will help you get your day off to a good start and make sure you take care of yourself before anyone else. Get started by drinking large quantities of water as soon as you wake up.

You can then enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, a quick workout, or a yoga routine. You can also keep a gratitude journal. You can only do so much in a given amount of time. Prioritize the things that will make you feel the most energetic and ready to go for the day.

Have A Great Night

A self-care routine before bed is just as effective if you aren’t a morning person or don’t have enough time to dedicate to yourself. While your options and goals may vary, the goal is to feel your best. So prioritize tasks that will make you feel refreshed, relaxed, and ready to go for the night.

Relax in a warm tub, take a bath, listen to soothing music or read a book. You can also try yoga, meditation, or gratitude as a nighttime routine. No matter what you choose, it is essential to include it in your calendar like any other appointment. You can set the alarm on your smartphone to remind you when it’s time to take care of yourself. It’s impossible to reap the rewards if you don’t make it a priority.

Final Thoughts

It’s not difficult to establish a self-care regimen. It’s the difficult part: taking the time to do it. However, if you feel so overwhelmed that you consider quitting your “just once” routine, remember that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of others. Even if you don’t want to take time for yourself, a self-care journal can give you the energy to keep going with your other endeavors.
