7 Daily Self-Care Habits to Help You Feel Your Best

Over the last year, I feel as though incorporating self-care into my daily routine became more important for me. So much so that finding small ways to be kind to myself throughout the day has become natural.

Self-care is a necessity for anyone, no matter what age or gender. And while we all take care of ourselves in different ways, I think we should do so on a regular basis.

I am a strong believer that not only can self-care be fun, but also have a substantial effect on how you think and live. Due to its importance, I have listed some simple habits–most of which I do myself–that you can incorporate into your everyday routine to help you feel like your best self.


1. Wash your face in the morning.

A substantial amount of bacteria gets attached to our skin every 24 hours. And while some bacteria actually protects our skin, others types may lead to clogged pores, a buildup of oil, acne, and a multitude of other issues. This is why taking a damp, warm towel or a facial wipe that includes ingredients that will moisturize your skin should be included in everyone’s morning routine.

2. Eat more meals in smaller portions.

While we may be tempted to eat half of tonight’s dinner in one sitting, many scientists believe that it is best to eat more, smaller meals. Not only will it prevent you from getting hungry as frequently throughout your day, but it also constantly provides your body with nutrients. This then instantly boosts your metabolism, making your body and mind alike more optimistic and energetic.

3. Keep your space organized.

The space that we are surrounded in every day makes a difference in our mental clarity. For example, most of us would probably feel more at peace in a house where everything is put in a designated place rather than one where objects are randomly scattered across the floor. Space organization is everything when it comes to self-care! So a good idea is to pick a room in your home–or a digital option such as your liked Videos or emails–and organize it. A clean space is a huge step forward to a clean mind.

4. Unplug from social media for a day.

As a person who is practically inseparable from her phone and computer, I understand that this can be much harder said than done; especially when trying to make it a habit. While unplugging isn’t something that I do often, every now and again I will take a day off of my electronics. And it can really help to clear your mind off of all the “noise” that comes with social media. The next day, I return to it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, in a sense.

5. Have a 3-minute breathing session.

There are times where we all need to sit still and take some deep breaths. I find this tip especially helpful for those who feel stressed or have anxiety, as it helps calm you down within a short amount of time. However, even if you don’t have any major events going on in your life, a 3-minute session of deep breaths can be very beneficial to your emotional health.

6. Laugh as often as possible.

In my house, this isn’t so much a tip; more of just regular life. My family knows how to have tons of fun together, so we are just about always laughing. However, studies have shown that while the average 4-year-old laughs up to 300 times a day, most 40-year-olds laugh as little as 4 times daily. Laughing produces the “happy” chemical named endorphins, the ultimate hormone for feeling your greatest.

7. Create a ‘positive vibes playlist’.

Listening to music is like a therapy to most people. It’s like that safe haven whenever you need to clear your thoughts or relax or have a little “me time.” A great idea if you are a music lover is to create a playlist of all the songs that never fail to make you smile. This way, whenever you need to take a little break, you can go to your playlist and feel the good vibes.


As a blogger, self-care posts are some of the most wholesome to write. I really enjoy helping people feel like their best self as they live their best life, and I hope that these self-care habits will help you make the most of your daily routine.

7 Ideas for Personal Growth in Summer 2022

If there’s anything that I love about summer, it’s that it gives me the opportunity to grow, learn new things, and change for the better because of it. Summer is a season of transformation, and becoming a wiser, happier, and healthier person than you were before.

Many people look for ways that they can grow during this time of year, but don’t know where to start. To give you a bit of a helping hand, here is a beginner’s guide to self improvement, including 7 of my favorite tips for personal growth that you can apply to your life during the summer of 2022.

1. Spend your time doing things that will make you better.

As we set the goal for ourselves to grow as individuals, we have to be sure that what we do on a daily basis reflects that desire. While there is no problem with having fun (responsibly) from time to time, we must show ourselves approved by doing productive things that will improve us in some form. In other words, we should do things that will help us reach our goals.

2. Volunteer in your community.

One of the best ways to work to grow over the summer is by volunteering into local organizations and helping people in need. At this point, we have more than enough time on our hands. Plus, it always feels good to know that we’re spending it in a way that will help the people in our communities who need our assistance.

3. Be open to trying new experiences.

Our comfort zones are a good thing, but only to a limit. Sometimes we need to move beyond them in order to transition to the next stage of our lives. Change can be a good thing–making the decision to improve yourself is change. And as we transform, it’s beneficial when we occasionally try new productive things, giving us another opportunity to gain wisdom as we learn from each experience.

4. Practice self-care on a regular basis.

Self-care is and always has been important. In order for us to continue to improve, we need to take care of ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually on a daily basis. Whether that means a few minutes of meditation, positive affirmations, reading, a hot bath, or listening to music, spend some time each day to clear your mind and get some me time.

5. Stay present and in the moment.

A critical part of personal development is staying present in every second that life has to offer. Even though summer break offers much time for us to learn and grow, it can fly by in a heartbeat. Therefore, be sure to take advantage of each moment that you have on Earth, with an intention and drive to reach each of your goals. So, while its good to plan for our future, make sure that you still remain present and grateful right where you are during each step of the journey.

6. Learn from others’ mistakes, so you don’t have to make them.

Honestly, I have to remind myself of this tip from time to time, just because it can be super easy to forget or dismiss. However, it holds so much wisdom that simply cannot be ignored. As we surround ourselves with positive role models who are willing to invest in us, we must pay attention to their experiences and what they have taught them. Take their wisdom as guidance for your future. And although we shouldn’t spend our time with them in order to grow, learn what not to do from the negative role models, as well.

7. Create positive habits

Those behaviors that we participate in have a significant affect on our lives and health. Healthy habits make up a healthy life. Focus your time doing things that are good for all the aspects of your health. This way, you can make room to continue your growth.


Personal growth is a mission that truly never stops, as there is always room for improvement. That being said, every single step counts, no matter their size. Developing as people is a process; one that takes time and patience. That being said, as long as we never give up, we are getting closer to whatever goals we want to achieve. We just have to keep pushing.

Rest Well – Words of Wisdom #4

Genesis 2:2-3 NIV (New International Version)
2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

The words of wisdom in the Bible hold a lot of meaning. And this section, in particular, stands out to me, a lot.

I find it amazing that even God Himself: the Lord of lords and King of kings, rested on the seventh day. He worked during the first six days–He created the world and everything in the world. And when He was done, He rested.

Now, we notice that the Bible just calls the Sabbath day “the seventh day.” We can conclude that this is technically Saturday, the seventh and last day of the week. While this is important, what I really want you to know is “Sabbath” means a day of rest or absence from work.

We don’t all have the same exact schedule–some people are off of work on Saturday, and others on Sunday. Some factors are simply out of our control. What matters is that when our time allows we take a break from work, and rest. That will likely be a day or two out of the week. It doesn’t have to be a lengthy period of time.

When we get our rest, we aren’t only resting our bodies, but also our minds. If we’re always on the go, then we will eventually get burnt out.

It’s just like how our bodies need sleep everyday–if we don’t get it, they can malfunction. That’s just how God made us.

We need at least one day out of the week as a break from work to regain our energy. As we work, we should put in our absolute best effort. In order to continue that same mindset, we need to take care of ourselves, too.

So it’s okay to take a rest from time to time. When we do our best work: good work, then a break is well deserved.

And if God rested, then we can, and should, too.

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! What you think about rest? ❤️
