How to Have a Self-Care Sunday


We all need a little cheering up sometimes. Life happens, things can pile up and make us feel stressed or depressed, and if we don't take some time for ourselves once in a while it can really impact on our mental health.

Sunday is the perfect day to implement a self-care routine. So here's a list of 30 things you can do to relax and recharge before the week begins again!

1. Go for a walk
2. Call a friend
3. Read a book
4. Cuddle someone you love
5. Write in your journal
6. Sing along to your favourite tunes
7. Declutter your house
8. Do some yoga
9. Write a letter
10. Plan a trip
11. Meditate
12. Lift some weights
13. Dance
14. List everything you're grateful for
15. Watch a funny TV show
16. Take a nap
17. Do an adult colouring book
18. Go for a drive
19. Buy yourself some flowers
20. Watch cute cat videos
21. Bake a cake
22. Drink some tea
23. Stroke your pet
24. Take a bubble bath
25. Create something
26. Put on a face mask
27. Paint your nails
28. Go out for coffee
29. Binge watch Netflix
30. Eat some chocolate

  6. This is a great list Nic. I wish I had read it earlier in my Sunday! My self care routine is lacking but often includes walks and curling up in my bed with a good book.

  7. It’s so important to feel good about yourself and just clear your mind sometimes. I love writing and blogging for this (although that too can get hectic) but I also love art. Calligraphy and drawing is my go-to when I just want some relaxation.

    1. I'd love to be able to draw. For me it wouldn't be relaxing; it'd be stressful because I'd get upset with how bad I am at it!

  8. There are definitely parts of these I take part in, such as watching a show or going on a walk.

    1. I enjoy seeing what other people consider self care, too. There are so many different interpretations and what works for one person might not work for someone else.
