Making time for little self-care treats

In the last couple of weeks I’ve been thinking about the importance of making time for little self-care treats in my life.

Self-care is something that can easily be forgotten in the normal busyness of day-to-day life but I really think it’s important for anybody’s continued wellbeing. Before I had cancer, I rarely did any of these things.

When I say ‘self-care treats’, I mean things like:

A few more treats I’d like to do in my life are:

  • Going for walks by the sea
  • Bubble baths! I’m terrible at making time to have a lovely relaxing bath
  • Trying new restaurants with my boys
  • Trying a hot yoga class
  • Learning to do calligraphy

I think it’s in these moments that we are able to really stop and experience life, to feel happy, to reflect and relax. If we are not having them on a regular basis, are we really doing ok? How would we know?

Do you make time for yourself with little things like these? What self-care treats do you have in your life? How many do you have every day/every week/every month? I’d love to read them in the comments below.
