Why self care days are important

Self care days have been clinically proven to reduce depression and anxiety. Need I say anymore?

Not only that, but taking a day, or even an hour just for yourself can improve your happiness, energy, concentration and reduce anger and frustration.

In an extremely busy world, where we are pulled in so many different directions, taking a time out can have immense positive effects.

Final thoughts

Taking a day for yourself doesn’t have to cost the earth.

You can pick up a book that’s been on your shelf for a while, you can do your own manicure at home or you can even make yourself your own fancy coffee at home.

The important thing is to just take time for yourself, however that looks.


  1. I need to have self care days much more often. I find walking in nature perfect. It can really help relax your mind.

  2. Great tips! I really love taking a long bath and relaxing, but I don’t have enough time lately. Definitely, I should try some of your self-care ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Self care is a must coz it will make us more healthy physically and mentally. When we feel healthy, we can also share that experience to others. I love having massages and spa treatment even just at home.
