At first, it can be difficult to make time for self-care in your daily routine. Once you do, you’ll see how worthwhile it is, and tbh you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
For those babes who feel they never have enough time, we made this list of 10 self-care ideas that take 10 minutes.
Experts say it takes 20-30 days to cultivate a habit. If you’re anything like me, you need a challenge to kickstart a new habit. A winter staycation is a perfect opportunity to start practicing self-care.
If you commit to this 30-day self-care challenge, you’ll feel a shift in your confidence, and you’ll feel grateful for everything you have.

1.De-clutter your home
All of us have stuff in our house that we totally don’t need. Whether it’s clothing, shoes, books, anything at all – donate it to a nearby shelter!

Your eyes and your head will so much better. Even after just 24 hours off.
Pop on a YouTube tutorial and start stretching. Light candles for a nice mood.

Ideally, this would be every day, but the best way to start is with one full day. Get it going! Eat your veggies.
