Autumn/Winter Self Care Ideas


Happy October (aka the best month)! I always feel like autumn has officially begun when it gets to this time of the year. There is nothing I love more than getting all cosy in the evenings and indulging in a few self care activities, so I thought I would share a few of my favourites.

♥  Take a warm bubble bath and use a festive bath bomb (Lush do amazing ones)

♥ Read a book

♥ Moisturise your body with a rich body cream

♥ Grab a blanket and make yourself a cup of tea, or hot chocolate with lots of toppings.

♥ Try journaling and create a few festive pages like things you want to do this autumn, or jot down what you are looking forward to this winter.

♥ Care for a plant (for those of you like me who cannot keep a plant alive, a cactus is a good idea)

 ♥ I know drinking water is important, but why not spice things up and try a smoothie too?

♥ Do an at home workout or yoga (and then get into your cosy pjs after).

♥ Snuggle up and watch a film or TV show. Side note: anyone excited for Stranger Things this autumn?

♥ Paint your nails but add a touch of glitter, or try some autumnal nail art.

♥ Listen to a podcast.

♥ Going for a walk and watching all the golden brown leaves fall off the trees.

♥ Light a candle – my favourite is apple cinnamon flavour.

♥ Make a DIY body scrub using honey, sugar and cinnamon.

♥ Bake some festive treats. Cinnamon buns and gingerbread men are the best!

♥ Embrace the weather by wrapping up in chunky knits and scarves.

♥ Treat yourself to that cute bobble hat, or fluffy pair of socks. You’ll be glad you did when it gets cold.
