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.
Those are a few of my favourite autumn/winter self care ideas. What are yours?
Thank you for reading, and have a lovely day!
