Self-Care Sunday Recipes To Spice Up Your Weekend

We’re coming up on the one-year mark of living in a global pandemic. The past year has taken a toll on many of us and while we’re doing our best to adapt to this new lifestyle, it’s still a challenge. Whether you’ve had an especially stressful week or just need to reset before Monday, taking some time on a Sunday to practice self-care is more important now than ever.

You may have heard people say that self-care is selfish or requires you to spend a lot of money but in reality, taking care of your mind, body and spirit doesn’t take much at all and is a necessity. Think about it: The better you feel, the more you can show up for others as well. Tune in with yourself and find out what kind of self-care you could benefit from this weekend.

If you’re feeling emotionally drained, write in your journal, bake or cook your favorite recipe or make an appointment with your therapist to talk it out. Try to practice self-compassion. What you think about yourself has so much power so be kind to yourself and find ways to stay motivated. If you’re struggling to find the right words, download these printable affirmation cards and stick them somewhere you see them daily (on your mirror in the bathroom, closet door in the bedroom or fridge in the kitchen).

If you’re in need of some mental stimulation, read a book or learn a new skill — maybe you’ve been wanting to learn a musical instrument or try out a new knitting pattern. If your body is feeling achy, have a little spa day! You can go for a replenishing walk, drink your favorite tea, wear a facemask or take a bubble bath.

Check out the visual below to learn more about self-care and get inspired by self-care recipes to round up your weekend.
