Motherhood is a beautiful journey filled with love, joy, and countless rewarding moments. However, it can also be demanding, exhausting, and overwhelming at times. As a result, Moms often make sure their families needs are met, but their own needs are not often prioritized. 

 But it’s important to remember that self-care is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. 

 It’s not about indulgence, it’s about taking small important steps to make sure your physical and mental health remain a priority through out the year, and not just on Mother’s Day. 

When we take care of ourselves first, show up as our best self to take care of those around us too. Here are 24 unique yet practical ways you can show up for yourself in 2024 and practice self-care: 

  1. Declutter your space: Spend some time organizing and decluttering a specific area of your home that feels chaotic. And then take time to enjoy your newly decluttered space. 
  2. Create a capsule wardrobe: Simplify your wardrobe (and life) by creating a capsule collection of versatile pieces that you love. This can save time and reduce decision fatigue by streamlining your daily outfit choices.
  3. Try a new skincare routine: Treat yourself to some new skincare products and pamper your skin with a relaxing skincare routine. Make sure to set aside time regularly for your new routine. 
  4. Give Yourself Permission to Take a Nap: Allow yourself to take a short nap during the day to recharge and rejuvenate. If you’ve got little ones, consider being intentional about doing this when your partner is on duty or have childcare available. 
  5. Plant a garden: Start a small garden, whether it’s indoors with houseplants or outdoors with a vegetable garden, and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of putting your hands in the dirt, which many find helps reduce stress and improve their mood.
  6. Write a love letter to yourself: Take some time to write a heartfelt letter to yourself, focusing on self-love and acceptance. List all of the things you love about yourself. 
  7. Learn a new language or skill: Start learning a new language or skill with an app or online course, which can stimulate your brain, enhance your memory, and open up new opportunities. 
  8. Have a digital detox: Spend a day without screens, focusing on activities that don’t involve technology, to reduce eye strain, improve sleep quality, and enhance real-world interactions.
  9. Create a vision board: Visualize your goals and dreams by creating a vision board with images and words that inspire you.
  10. Practice mindfulness: Take a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness meditation, focusing on the present moment.
  11. Try a new recipe: Experiment with a new recipe or cooking technique in the kitchen.
  12. Take a bath: Enjoy a relaxing bath with candles, essential oils, and calming music. Put a sign on the door inviting your family to hold on non-emergency interruptions. 
  13. Go for a walk: Take a leisurely walk in nature or around your neighborhood to clear your mind and enjoy the benefits of fresh air and gentle exercise.
  14. Listen to a podcast: Find a podcast on a topic you’re interested in and listen to it while relaxing, which can be a great way to unwind and learn something new at the same time.
  15. Do a puzzle: Spend some time working on a puzzle to stimulate your mind and relax.
  16. Try a new hobby: Explore a new hobby or craft that you’ve always wanted to try.
  17. Read a book: Escape into a good book and immerse yourself in a different world. 
  18. Write some fan fiction: If you are a fan of a book or film series, consider writing some fan fiction based on the characters you already know and love. 
  19. Take a dance break: Put on your favorite music and dance around your living room for a fun and energizing break. Maybe even pull up YouTube and find a tutorial to learn a new dance. 
  20. Practice gratitude: Write down three things you’re grateful for each day to cultivate a positive mindset.
  21. Connect with a friend: Reach out to a friend and schedule a catch-up call or coffee date.
  22. Watch a movie: Treat yourself to a movie night with your favorite film and snacks. Comfy P.J.s a must! 
  23. Plan a future trip: Start planning a future trip or vacation, even if it’s just researching destinations and activities.
