70 Ways For Self Care

by Evelyn on January 18, 2011

Self care is an act of loving yourself. Maybe the act is to nourish your mind, body or spirit. Whatever it is, you do something nurturing. You don’t put off from taking a needed break or having some me-time. You create a better relationship with self.

Self Care Tips
(Read tip #69 – creating affirmation cards)

Self care is taking care of your inner home. And obviously, you do not wreck yourself apart when you undertake self-care. This means that you don’t give excuses for feeling tired, crying or going for an expensive pedicure. You please yourself rather than others. Very importantly, you do not experience guilt, shame or blame. So it may mean eating more, less or having an indulgence every now and then. You take a balanced approach to overall holistic well-being.

When taking care of a home, you would clear out the rubbish, clean, scrub, make it comfortable and beautify it. You feel nourished from within. There are many ways that you can undertake self care. Here are 70 Mind-Body-Spirit Ways….

1. Have a pampering massage. Book a session with a therapist instead of sitting on a massage chair. Get an hour-long full body massage for complete relaxation of your tense muscles.

2. Learn to say no. So you have been feeling overwhelmed because you are in the habit of saying yes to all kinds of requests? Learn to say no if you need some time and attention for yourself.

3. Meditate. This is my favorite tip! I enjoy being in a peaceful sanctuary, away from the noise, crowd and clutter. So whenever I am feeling tense, I would retreat into silence for a while. I practice breath meditation, allowing me to relax my mind. Consider incorporating this tip as part of your regular routine too! You will experience the benefits of mediation.

4. Have healthy meals. If you have been eating way too much over Christmas, New Year or any festive period, then give your body a break. Go easy on the meats and eat more of the greens.

5. Have a snack. It’s okay to indulge every once in a while, especially when you have already been pretty good at sticking to a healthy diet regime. Go snack if it makes you feel good – even if it is potato chips! Just know when to stop!

6. Wear comfortable clothes. Forget the skimpy G-string! Wear big comfortable undies.

7. Take a warm bath. Don’t just take a quick shower but soak yourself in a long and relaxing bath. You would feel rejuvenated for sure!

8. Go offline. Reduce mental clutter by going off the internet for a day or even a week.

9. Switch off your handphone. Just for a day or two, take a break from answering calls or responding to smses. It’s okay! The world won’t collapse without you.

10. Take an afternoon nap. If you are feeling tired during the day, take a nap. No excuses are needed, even if you end up sleeping way longer than what is considered a power nap.

11. Pick up a new hobby. It’s not about work all the time. Pick up a new hobby to nurture your soul. A crafty hobby, for instance, is about aligning yourself with “creative” energies.

12. Watch a funny movie. Heard of the phrase, “laughter is the best medicine”? A silly or funny show can just do the trick in helping you loosen up!

13. Journal. Writing your thoughts and feelings in your diary or on a blog is self-help therapy that does not cost you a single cent.

14. Take walks in the park. Another of my favorite tip. Spend time in a botanical garden of smiling orchids and experience wellness right away.

15. Do yoga. Yoga is a mind-body-spirit practice that helps you feel centered. Through appropriate yoga postures, you get to balance your chakras, stretch for exercise and experience a sense of connection with the universe.

16. Sing or listen to music. Singing is a vocal expression of your heart. It allows you to connect with your feelings. Putting on some music can also help you to get in touch with your soul.

17. Catch up with an old friend. Set aside some time to catch up for idle chit chat. Look up an old friend and laugh over old times.

18. Read comics. Comics make us think and laugh. Some offer a wonderful escape into an imaginary world, while others take us back to our childhood.

19. Sleep in on Sunday. It’s nice to be able to sleep in rather than wake up in a rush.

20. Write poetry. Expressing yourself through poetry is making music out of your thoughts and feelings.

21. Go for a card reading. Angelic or goddesses cards have nurturing messages. For self divination, try the packs by Doreen Virtue.

22. Do a detoxification cleanse. If you have been feeling lethargic, consider doing a cleansing routine. A detoxification cleanse helps to remove toxins, making you feel “lighter”, more energized and less tired.

23. Burn some aromatherapy candles. Use scent therapy to invoke the right mood, release your tension or simply to clear the air of toxins.

24. Remove physical clutter. Having excessive physical clutter around can weigh you down. Clear your desk to make some space. Throw away things that can no longer be used. And most certainly, give away your old clothes to the needy.

25. Play some music.
Play the piano, violin or any musical instrument that allows you to lose yourself in the moment.

26. Get a babysitter. Caring for your baby is important but it does not hurt to take a few hours off for some needed rest.

27. Reduce alcohol intake. Drinking alcohol to make you forget your worries is a short-sighted measure. Getting intoxicated does not erase your problems. Having clarity, on the other hand, helps.

28. Get some cleaning help. Take a break from having to do ironing or washing that dirty pile of plates in your kitchen sink. Hire help.

29. Go to the beach. Let the sea breeze work its magic on you. Feel the sand from below your feet. Get a lift in your spirits after a trip to the beach.

30. Have a delicious scoop or two of chocolate ice-cream – my favorite tip anytime!

31. Read a book. It always feels nice to curl up in a nice comfortable chair to read a great book from start to finish. A memoir that I recommend reading is Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

32. Scrapbook. Instead of simply creating scrapbook albums for photos, I have been using scrapbook ideas to make collections of inspirational quotes and sayings. My favorite pictures are featured here, here and here.

33. Flip through albums of old photographs. Old photos invoke happy memories. I enjoy going through my travel albums. Looking at my pictures – whether they are taken in Alaska, Mexico, Spain, England or Japan – makes me smile.

34. Bake a cake. Baking or cooking, for that matter, can be therapeutic. My husband enjoys cooking up a storm every once in a while.

35. Express appreciation for your blessings. Learn how to start a gratitude journal here.

36. Swing on a swing. There is something about swings that make many of us feel free, young and loving life!

37. Go for a swim. Whether we choose to take a dip or swim laps, being in the water makes us feel refreshed and revitalized. Which reminds me. I need to make use of the condominium pool downstairs more often!

38. Try retail therapy. It’s always nice to give yourself a treat every now and then. Once again, no excuses needed! Don’t stinge on yourself by buying presents for your children or others only. Buy something lovely for yourself, like a new shade of lipstick for instance!

39. Play with young children. Being around young children can bring out your child-like side. In case you are wondering, you have always had this side in you. Being child-like is to be who you are, without a worry in the world.

40. Paint. Painting is therapeutic self-care that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. The last time you painted may have been years ago, when you were little. You awaken the creative streak in you that has long been forgotten.

41. Dance. Dancing can be a form of relaxation for some. My daughter loves to dance in front of the mirror when no one is looking…ha. Forget about trying to master the moonwalk, just dance – with wild abandonment.

42. Pick up nature photography. Don’t just take family portraits or posed pictures, capture nature in its raw beauty. As you view through your lens, keep a record of the moments that take your breath away.

43. Listen to personal development audio tapes for self care. There are audios that you can purchase to build self esteem or calmness. Guided meditation tapes are also excellent buys!

44. Hug a soft cuddly teddy bear. Or ask for a hug from someone.

45. Practice some creative visualization. Engage in an afternoon of dreams by practicing the pink bubble technique for creative visualization.

46. Get a workout. Make use of the nearby gym facilities and get some exercise. Feel better after breaking out in beads of sweat!

47. Read a travel magazine. Let your mind take you away on a vacation. See yourself holidaying in the place that you have always wanted to go, and doing the things you have always wanted to do.

48. Take a holiday. Okay, I have to admit that nothing beats the actual experience of travel. Refrain from booking a group tour that tries to pack 10 countries in 5 days. Go on a leisurely one, instead. You can do many of your bookings yourself by researching online.

49. Go on a meditation retreat. A holiday and a retreat is not quite the same thing. For a holiday, your focus is about fun and relaxation. In a meditation retreat, you are setting aside dedicated days for quiet contemplation. Ever tried a Noble Silence retreat? Read about one of my experiences here.

50. Let go of emotional clutter. Spend an afternoon, night or simply allocate some time to clear emotional clutter. I do this at least 2-3 times per week, using emotional healing methods such as EFT or The Sedona Method.

51.Quit smoking. Smoking introduces toxins into your body. The chance of getting lung cancer goes up. Good self care is taking care of your body and getting rid of habits that do not serve you.

52. Have a vase of fresh flowers on your desk. This is a simple, yet often overlooked, tip. If you spend a long time at your desk, it is a great idea to bring in some nature and sunshine indoors.

53. Heal your inner child. Click here for more information on inner child healing. Need to book a personal consultation? If you are Singaporean, I offer face-to-face sessions. Contact me at abundancetapestry [at]

54. Listen to music. Putting on some music can also help you to get in touch with your soul. New age meditative music can be therapeutic, healing and calming.

55. Drink plenty of water. It is important to drink the daily 7-8 glasses of plain water daily. Juices, herbal teas or coffee do no count in this daily requirement.

56. Switch to herbal tea. To reduce intake of caffeine, cut down on the coffee that you are drinking. Consider a switch to herbal tea!

57. Shield yourself from negativity.
Find yourself surrounded by toxic criticism, scathing remarks and unsupportive comments? Stay away from people who are negative. If you need to be near them, consider shielding yourself energetically.

58. Write a love letter to yourself.
Project 10 years from now. Write a letter of love and encouragement to your current self.

59. Enhance yourself by attending workshops. There are different workshops that you can attend for enhancing the self. These include life coaching, public speaking, personal grooming and so on. Taking an active interest in your personal development is self-care.

60. Practice tai-chi. Tai-chi is a mind-body-spirit practice that is described as “meditation in motion”. At first awkward, you will eventually find yourself engaged in a graceful dance after some practice.

61. Trash email messages that you won’t read.
I know you have been meaning to but you have been too busy to read the pile of emails in your inbox. And you know that it will take you ages to get to them. Well, either organize them into folders for those that you are likely to read even after weeks or send those that you suspect you won’t ever read into the trash bin.

62. Take leisurely drives. Take a drive and check out areas that you have never ventured before. Doing so tunes you into the energetic vibrations of possibility, play and adventure. You release yourself from the repetitive strains of daily pressures.

63. Get grounded. If you find yourself being flighty and unable to get settled, then get some grounding done. Read this post on How to get Grounded.

64. Make a to-do list. If you have been feeling overwhelmed, sit down and make a list of to-do things, ranking them in priority. Getting your tasks down on paper gives you a clearer idea of what is or is not essential.

65. Brighten up your wardrobe. Forget about the sober blacks, dull greys and boring browns. Observe yourself brightening up when you wear clothes with colors.

66. Simply smile. With a guide on 17 types of smiles, you can’t go wrong. So look into the mirror and give yourself a wide smile. Go ahead, you deserve it!

67. Book a healing session. Maybe it is Reiki, Quantum touch or crystal therapy. Whatever the healing modality is, feel revitalized after a session of energy healing.

68. Reconnect with a family member. It’s time to rebuild the relationships that have been estranged by time and distance. Call a family member to reconnect. Set aside past grievances for inner healing.

69. Create affirmation cards. Putting your affirmations on cards can make great reminders. Flipping through them at a later stage also reinforces your commitment for self-care. Need ideas for affirmations? Check out my previous article 101 affirmations for children to get started on some.

70. Create a Vision Board. Create a vision board for self care. Cut and paste pictures of you and the aspects of self-care that you intend to focus on. Want to learn more about Vision Boards? Details of workshop and program to be announced soon!

Hi Evelyn,
Thank you for some amazing tips! Often we concentrate on other centered love and put our “self” last or not even on the list at all..Your list shows how ‘easy’ self love may be, as you care for your self, you learn to love your whole self. To me, self love involves opening my heart as fully to my self as I do to others..allowing for abundant joy and magic to fill my heart..and then to create from that overflowing well:) And self care is essential for it allows me to be healthy and whole so to then share healthy and whole…


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Joy,

I love how you describe self love as opening your heart fully to yourself and others. There is a multitude of self care ways to put this in action. It’s centering love on ourselves not in a selfish but in a very nurturing way.

Wishing you more love, care and beauty for the week,


Dandy January 19, 2011 at 1:00 am

Hi Evelyn,
This list is so good. Thanks for passing it on. I love the idea of affermation cards. Sometimes it is really hard (especially for women) to put ourselves on the list of priorities. Thanks for the positivity!


Evelyn Reply:

Hi Dandy,

You’ve made a great point about being woman and facing the difficulty in putting ourselves as important. Well, more power to us – now that we are aware of the need to take care of ourselves holistically!

With love,


Alison Elliot January 19, 2011 at 3:20 am

Wonderfully explicit post Evelyn and so very important. I love the graphic at the beginning too. As one who’s been known to be delinquent in the area of self care, I very much appreciate the reminder.

What am I doing for myself right now? Well, I have set up a series of Rolfing sessions for the next couple months. Recognizing that the aging process requires I focus more on my physical boddy, I figured I would go one beyond massage and actually gift my body with deeper attention.

I feel amazing after just one session. I understand that Rolfing gets the lymph moving and that often when we think we’re gaining weight, it’s really a lymph stagnation that is causing the bloated look. Interestingly enough I did a series of Rolfing sessions back in my early 30′s and it totally improved the shape of my physical body. This time the benefits will be more internal than external I expect, but who knows, I’m likely gonna be able to fit in to those old jeans again!!

At any rate, I’m hooked now and can’t wait till Friday when I go back to get “pampered” again.


Evelyn Reply:

Hi Alison,

Thanks for your feedback about my post. I am glad that you like the affirmation cards that I did.

Rolfing sounds interesting. I have never tried it, though. As for signing up for a series of massage sessions, why not? I do that too!

Have a rejuvenating week,


Cindy January 19, 2011 at 4:38 am

Thank you. I enjoyed reading your post. Some good suggestions in here many I never thought of.

NAT January 19, 2011 at 7:00 am

Thanks for all your great tips and your continued fabulous insight!
I just recently took up #11 -a hobby called soul collage it’s absolutely fantastic! It’s very enlightening.


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Nat,

I have heard of soul collage but am most happy to be reminded of it again. It sure sounds like fun while learning how to get in touch with our intuition.

Have a great time doing your cards!

With love,


Lance January 19, 2011 at 9:14 am

Hi Evelyn,
What a wonderful list!!

I have just started yoga in the last few months, and what a great way this has been to care for self.

Now…as I read this…I’m thinking it’s time to get a massage again (it has been WAY too long!).


Evelyn Reply:

Hi Lance,

It’s wonderful that you’ve started on yoga and having a great time.

Oh yes….go for a massage! I almost always feel better after one!

With love,


Bunnygotblog January 20, 2011 at 5:28 am

#65 is a great tip for me. They are all wonderful but I need some color in my life – well clothing.


Evelyn Reply:

Hmmm….I might just do some shopping this weekend too!

Thanks a bunch for visiting my site :-)


Sam January 20, 2011 at 10:54 am

Thanks Evelyn for the important reminder and a long list of great tips. :)

Always feel good after gym and shower, and followed by a silence meditation… and read an inspiring book…. that make my day. :)

Thanks for sharing… you have a nice day.


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Sam,

You have a wonderful day and week too!

The Vizier January 21, 2011 at 12:58 am

Hi Evelyn,

When our house is in order, we can deal with the world. This is truly a remarkable list of ways for self care! Here are some of my thoughts on them.

2. Learn to say no

This is a very important lesson to learn. We only have so much energy to spend each day. If we do not know how to say no, we could end up feeling totally drained when we do things we do not want to or like to do.

18. Read comics

I enjoy this tip a lot! I read lots of comics. In fact, I always look forward to Thursdays because I get to pick up new comics from my favourite comic store and read manga online. I actually enjoy reading mangas like Naruto, Bleach, Hokuto no Ken and Berserk because they tell such moving stories that can move me to tears; both happy and sad. Truly, comics expand our horizons and imagination.

31. Read a book

One of my alltime favourites! I love to read and I normally prefer uplifting stories. There is nothing like a good story to lift my spirits and make me feel much better.

46. Get a workout

I workout because of necessity. If I did not workout, I would fall sick easily, feel sluggish and weak. Our bodies were not meant for a sedentary lifestyle. We need to workout so that they remain fit and healthy all the way through old age. This is one of the most important ways for self care.

57. Shield yourself from negativity

I avoid negativity nowadays. When I was younger, I did not know any better and regarded negativity as part and parcel of life. But that only fed my own negativity. Today, by avoiding negativity or dealing with it when I have sufficient reserves, I lead a much happier and balanced life.

Thank you for sharing this article! :)

Irving the Vizier


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Irving,

Thanks for sharing about your self-care tips.

I included the comics tip because I’ve noticed how absorbed my children and husband can be when they dive into theirs. They would be into their “caves”, relishing every moment.

I’m glad that you’ve learn how to shield yourself from negativity and saying no. Great learnings for me too!

With love,


Therese Miu January 21, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Hi Beautiful & Lovely Evelyn,
You hit the nail on these lists… Such a phenomenal list really! I agree with you 100% and more. As you already know from my video I practice the 3′s
1.) Silence
2.) Solitude
3.) Stillness
Silent retreat is a GIFT I GIVE to myself to restore inner strength, maintain balance, and direct my world inward. I also practice this for my self-care breathing ritual

1. In mouth out mouth
2. In mouth out nose
3. In nose out nose
4. In nose out mouth
5. In mouth out mouth
6. In mouth out nose
7. In nose out nose
8. In Nose out mouth
9. In mouth out mouth
10. In mouth out nose
11. In nose out nose
12. In nose out mouth
13. In mouth out mouth

Now close your eyes and enjoy the tingle!

Love to YOU Evelyn,
I’m excited with our connection today yiiiiipppeee :) ))


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Terrific Therese,

I tried the ritual that you’ve written. Oh gosh…I got myself mixed up in the middle. Got to try it again…LOL!!

Thanks for sharing your self care ritual and the sharing of your 3 Ss again,


Alex Blackwell January 21, 2011 at 7:14 pm

Amazing list Evelyn. This post has been bookmarked so on the days when I’m need some gentle soothing, I know where to find some wonderful ideas.

Thanks so much,



Evelyn Reply:

Hi Alex,

Thank you for your affirmation of it being a useful post. Awesome!

Have a Happy weekend,


Sara January 22, 2011 at 12:43 pm

I always enjoy your posts, but I loved this one. I’ve been leading Personal Renewal Groups based on Renee Trudeau’s book, The Mother’s Guide to Self Renewal, for over two years. Self-care is the biggest focus of the groups and the thing I stress the most is that it isn’t necessarily massages and pedicures that we’re talking about (although those are good), but to really focus on emotional self-care too..that’s the one that seems to be neglected the most. So, your tips for journaling, gratitude journal, saying no, healing session, etc…are GREAT tips. I’ll be sharing this post w/my groups..thanks!
P.S. My favorite self-care activity is walking around our neighborhood park in the early mornings. And, my friend told me yesterday that she just started using candles again (she had stopped when her kids were young) and she said she forgot how much she enjoyed having scented candles lit in her home. Ah…it’s the simple things really!


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Sara,

Oh yes, the emotional self-care is most important. I cannot stress that enough as well. I spend more of my time working on the inner world than what appears on the outside.

I don’t go for pedicure sessions myself. But I gather that many women feel great whenever they get one. And while meditation is perhaps my favorite self-care tip, not everyone likes the idea of sitting down in silence. So I guess each of us has to find out what makes us feel nurtured.

Walks in the neighborhood park sound like a great start to a day. Which reminds me. I have been so busy since the year started that I need to make it a point to go to the one near my place again.

Have an awesome weekend,


Farnoosh January 22, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Evelyn, beautiful post and a great list. I am dying to do #49. Have you gone to a meditation retreat? I love and do so many, many, many of these and think you have captured so many amazing ideas here. They can be transformative altogether to someone’s life. I am inspired to create a list for habits….thanks so much for this comprehensive post!


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Farnoosh,

Go on then. Do tip #49…LOL! Yes, I have been to a few retreats. I usually feel great after that. If my schedule works out, I am hoping to do another Noble Silence retreat this year. With family and work concerns, it is not quite as easy to take off and to be uncontactable for more than a week. Most certainly, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I would be interested to read your list of habits!

Have a great weekend,


Chris Mercer January 23, 2011 at 8:55 pm

My wife and I have a vision board for a move we are planning and I really like the idea of the affirmation cards. We’ve also decided to de-clutter a bit to help the energy flow. I like #6 as well but it’s been a long time since I’ve had a g-string… I’m a boxer kinda guy! :)

Thanks for list Evelyn!


Chris Edgar January 24, 2011 at 10:13 am

Hi Evelyn — I particularly liked your point about learning to say no — in my experience, people who often say “I just don’t have time to do this or that” can benefit from taking a look at the places in their lives where they’re unwilling to protect their time, and easing into refusing a request once in a while.


Liesel Reply:

Hi Evelyn, and Chris,

Great point you make, Chris. I do the “overwhelm” thing so easily because I can’t decide where is the best use of my time. I want to do SO many things, so I haven’t yet found the recipe to “protect my time”, like you put it so beautifully.

My requests used to come from others all the time, and I even used to jump in with offering help before anyone asked. I still do that from time to time, forgetting my own priorities and what I want to get done.

My biggest challenge now is that most of my “requests” for my time comes from within, so to speak… I want to do this, accomplish this, have this goal… and all of them needs “time” to get done.

Boy, am I ever continuing to learn on this journey of “saying no”!


Lei February 2, 2011 at 6:39 am

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you for the advice. How would you suggest shielding myself energetically for tip 57 (“Shield yourself from negativity. Find yourself surrounded by toxic criticism, scathing remarks and unsupportive comments? Stay away from people who are negative. If you need to be near them, consider shielding yourself energetically.”)?
I work full time with the most toxic people I have ever met, people that complain, gossip, criticize, are sensitive, and quick to retaliate if you put them on edge. I haven’t been in this position for a year yet, and at first I would find myself talking in conversations about people I never even knew until I realized this was the reason why I’d feel so drained at the end of the day. I figured since my co-workers aren’t going to change, I decided to change my attitude and simply tune them out, but now I feel as if they purposely ignore me because I ignore them, except they don’t know why. I cannot avoid the toxicity spilled out by these people and I can’t change jobs. I don’t feel I should have to either, but how to cope in the mean time without coming off as stuck up? I have no reason to suggest my ideas to these people, because I already know they will not consider it since they find no fault in themselves and anyway who am I to judge? I just want to be happy and have energy at the end of my work day. Please offer any advice. I’m new to your site and absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing!


Evelyn Reply:

Hello Lei,

I hear you. I totally empathize with your situation. I would be answering your question about “energy shielding” in an article post, so that more people can benefit from it. Do keep a lookout for it!

Take care,

By the time I got to #49, my neck muscles and nearby regions was well exercised! Had fun time nodding and blurting “yeah, baby!” a lot! But my favorite would be points be 3, 4 and 54. Way to go, Eve! This was long but each of the ideas was succinctly explained. Keep posting!


bodynsoil July 29, 2011 at 8:40 pm

I have been dealing with a very stressful relationship and recently had to cut that individual free from my life. Initially I stressed over doing so as I didn’t want to hurt their feelings, everyone reminded me that they stopped at nothing to hurt my feelings and the feelings of others so I made the break. Since doing so I have felt free and much less stressed out.

I found your articles while doing a google search for negative/toxic relationships. I linked to them in my blog as I found them very helpful while dealing with some inner turmoil. Thank you for your posts.
