You may have heard the term ‘Self Care Sunday’ used by bloggers and Instagram stars recently. It’s a new trendy term used to describe taking some time to pamper and treat yourself once a week, normally on a Sunday. This could be anything from going for a
walk to mindfulness, or even just spending an extra hour in bed if your body needs it!



The benefits of taking time out for a bit of self-care can be huge. You’ll be able to de-stress, unwind from your week, and get prepared for the week ahead. Time spent looking after yourself can also make you feel happier, calmer and able to sleep better. Sounds great, right?


Read on for our easy tips to have a blissful #SelfCareSunday.

Ultimate Self Care Sunday Routine -

Have a lie-in

This is probably the easiest way to take care of yourself. Spending a little extra time in bed is a great way to recuperate after a tough week. Listen to what your body is telling you - if you need an extra couple of hours in bed, go for it!

Make a to-do list

Simply writing out a to-do list for the week ahead can help you to feel calmer about tackling your tasks. It’s easy to feel a little anxious when it seems like you have lots to do and no time to do it, but breaking it down into manageable tasks will help it to feel a lot less daunting.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a very simple form of meditation which can help to train your mind to be a little calmer, help you to reduce stress and manage the symptoms of mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression. The free app Headspace is a great place to start, or you can find plenty of short guides on YouTube.

Prepare some nutritious food

Making sure you’re eating well is a great way to show yourself some love. Why not try a smoothie bowl with lots of yummy toppings for a quick nutritional boost, or whip up a big stir fry for a hearty dinner.

Figure out how to fit more self-care into your week

Although it’s great to set aside a chunk of time once per week to give yourself a little attention, spend a little time figuring out how to fit more self-care into your week.

Try adding a multivitamin such as Wellwoman from Vitabiotics to your daily routine, or get off the bus a bit earlier and walk to work. Little changes like these will have a real impact on your mental and physical health and will give you a little boost throughout the week.
