Easy Self-Care Ideas You Can Do Right Now!

Brooke-Sidney Harbour

In this quick periscope video, I share some easy self-care ideas that you can do right now - this moment. You can watch the video, listen to the audio, or read my thoughts below.


We have big things that we are all trying to accomplish in 2016. However, we can't do big things if we don't take care of ourselves. Self-care is a way to refresh, refuel, and rejuvenate ourselves so we can accomplish our goals. Try to create self-care habits and routines in the areas of mind, body, and spirit. If you need help with self-care, please feel free to reach out.


Try to set aside 15 minutes a day for simple self-care. You don't need to spend a lot of time, especially if you don't have it. And if you don't have 15 minutes, try a quick activity like prayer, meditation, or being mindful with your favorite cup of tea/coffee for only 5 minutes.


Self-care doesn't have to be complicated. It can be as simple as bringing a little beauty into your environment. To follow my own advice, I decided to add a little plant goodness to my office environment. Plants are a beautiful gift from Spirit, which were created for their beauty and to nourish us. They can brighten up your space and spirit.

Look at small gifts you can give yourself. You can give yourself flowers.

Another idea to consider is adding essential oils into your daily routine. As a Young Living distributor, I love my oils and find them to be extremely restorative. Two of my favorites right now are "Stress Away" and "Joy." If you are interested in learning more about essential oils or purchasing them, please click here. I'm also available to chat about oils too! (I love them!)

Furthermore, if you are finding it challenging to make room in your lives for self-care, chances are you need to schedule it. I'd love to recommend my Mama Love Planner because it is designed to help mamas get more self-care, institute a gratitude practice, and uplift their lives with powerful declarations. For more information on the Mama Love Planner, please click here.

And if you are looking for additional self-care ideas, please join my mailing list and receive my 31 Self-Care Ideas for Mamas PDF. It's free and it will give you self-care ideas or jumpstart your creative juices to figure out your own restorative practices.

And finally, if you are still stuck with feeling overwhelmed, down, or not quite joyful about motherhood. Or if you aren't sure where to start with discovering your own joy or making time for self-care. Please contact me for a free 15 minute Mama Joy Discovery Session. I'd love to help!
