Taking Care Of You That Costs Nothing Ideas
We are discussing self-care this month and it seems that many people feel that this is a big expense. Today we want to share a couple of ideas to help you take care of yourself that costs nothing. You see we believe that self-care activities don’t have to include getting an expensive facial or massage, or joining a gym. You can practice self-care every single day and not spend a dime. Our topic today is Think Self-Care Is Expensive? Taking Care Of You That Costs Nothing Ideas
Here are some great free or low-cost ways to have more self-care.
Take a Bath
Getting in a hot bath can be a great way to self-care. We might suggest a bubble bath or maybe Epsom salts and essential oils if have the supplies. Draw yourself a hot bath and pour in some bubbles, essential oils, or bath salts. Soak in the tub with some music playing or just sit in silence. Make sure the house and family are taken care of in advance so you can have the time to take full advantage of soaking in the tub. Lock the door so you have no distractions and let the dogs out, so they don’t bother you either. Remember not to bring your cell phone to the bathroom with you!
Many people also like to practice meditation as a form of self-care without spending a lot of money. This is something else that can be free or possibly cost a small amount of money, depending on your method. For example, if you want to purchase a meditation CD to follow along to, naturally you will be spending a small amount of money. However, for the most part, this is minimal and a one-time cost.
Meditation involves breathing exercises and sitting in a quiet space alone while you relax your mind. You want to try to think about as little as possible, using imagery to think of something that brings you peace and happiness, instead of using this time to think about what is causing you stress in the first place. It does take a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, you will realize just how beneficial and enjoyable it can be.
Go For a Walk or Run
Exercise must always be at the top of your list when you are looking to find activities for yourself that don’t cost anything. Some workouts cost money when you need to get a gym membership or buy fancy equipment, but both walking and running require nothing. Just wear comfortable clothes and a good pair of shoes, and you’re good to go! You can walk around your neighbourhood, head to somewhere more scenic, or even walk in place or up and down the stairs in your home if the weather is bad outside.
We believe that taking care of yourself is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It doesn’t cost a lot to begin the practice. Today we simply want to share that there are many ways to practice self-care that costs nothing. These activities are relaxing, rejuvenating and enjoyable.
