I truly believe that loving ourselves is so important to our mental health. We must take care of ourselves before we can take care of others and one of the ways we can take care of ourselves is by practicing self love. It can be as simple as lighting our favorite candle or as fun as riding our bike on our favorite bike path. I've complied a list of 20 ways you can practice self love FOR FREE!!! If you have something you think I should add to the list, tell me in the comments! I'd love to hear your ideas!
Wear something you feel great in
Gaze at the stars
Take a leisurely walk
Take a fitness class (Yoga would be a great relaxing option) - you can get a trial pass at a lot of places. Just call and ask. Mention 614 Mom at Life Time Dublin or Easton and get a free day pass.
Roll down your windows and sing to great music
Take a nap
Give yourself a pedicure
Watch a favorite/funny movie
Make a homemade face mask and relax
Burn your favorite candle
Take a mental health day
Paint using watercolors
Watch the sunset
Learn something new
Go to the Columbus Museum of Art (Free on Sundays)
Give yourself a manicure
Go to bed early
Say ‘No!” - You don’t need to explain yourself to anyone. If you don’t want to do something or can’t do it - say no and be okay with it.
