When you think about BUCKET LISTS, you might think of fancy trips, vacation spots, or fun activities that you can do worldwide one day.

On this blog, I talk a lot about SELF CARE, things we can do to appreciate time with ourselves and SELF LOVE.

That is why I thought it would be fun to create a SELF LOVE BUCKET LIST that encompasses all the things that you can work towards for YOURSELF.

The Ultimate Self Care Bucket List

Self Care Activities to Help You Relax

  • Enjoy a nice spa day (you can even have an indoor spa night for yourself)!
  • Listen to a free meditation online. Nowadays there are super short or long ones that you can find.
  • Treat yourself to a well-deserved massage! You can even gather massage tools to have your own massage days at home.
  • If your budget allows, try out a facial!
  • Try out new hairstyles that don’t look exactly like your usual look.
  • Enjoy a movie night at home with your favorite snacks.
  • Sit by a shady tree and read your favorite book outdoors.
  • Spend time at the pet store! For some reason, that helps me unwind a bit and forget about the real world lol.
  • Take a calming swim! As a swimmer, I love having a relaxing, easy swim where I don’t push myself.
  • Build yourself a blanket and pillow fort!
  • Go stargazing with snacks and yummy food!
  • Take a break off social media for an entire day. If you can do a week, even better and I’m totally impressed by you.
  • Sit alone in silence on a comfy chair outside. Reflect on things that bring you peace and happiness.

  • Bake something delicious! Ex. cookies.. cookies.. or um, cookies 😉
