Having a ten month old means I spend most of my days with a little person completely reliant on me. I make meals, spend hours playing, change nappies, and through Ada currently clingy, separation anxiety filled days, I can’t so much as have a wee in peace. There’s a few things I like to do that let me feels a little more human, although this won’t be the usual self-care checklist filled with positive things like “drink more water” or “go for a run”; these are the things that make me feel better, healthy or not!
- Start the day with a coffee
- Go on a walk
- Have a small treat
- Spend at least a few minutes in the garden
- Light candles
- Cosy up under blankets
- Cuddle with Ada
- Take time for a skincare routine
- Write in my Happiness Planner
- Listen to music
- Watch a comedy on TV
What’s on your self care checklist?
