15 Ways to Practice Self-Care Today


This month at The I’m Loving Me Project, we’re all about Self-Care and Wellness. What’s not to love about giving yourself a little love? You’ve probably heard it before, but you can’t fill from an empty cup. We, as women, take on so much in life, and it’s high time we start prioritizing our own happiness and wellness.

But what does real self-care look like? Is it all candles and bubble baths and extended naps? While those things may contribute to self-care and your overall wellbeing, there are so many ways to make sure you’re really taking care of yourself. Your well-being is multi-faceted and includes your physical, mental, psychological, social, economic, and developmental wellbeing. That’s a lot to think about and a lot to take on. We’ve got your back though, and we’re sharing some of our favorite self-care rituals to improve your overall well-being.

Check out this quickfire list of 15 self-care practices you can try today…

1. Light a scented candle

2. Read one chapter of a book
