Give yourself gifts whenever you need them most.
Self-care comes in a variety of forms and addresses physical, emotional, psychological, financial, spiritual, and social needs. The next time you’re feeling ill or out of sorts, try creating a toolkit that contains the things you need most in life. Having access to a variety of self-care options allows you to address whatever need is most prevalent in your life and in a way that feels good.
Some items to include in your self-care toolkit include:
- Aromatherapy Patches. Choose from a variety of scents created to address whatever ails you. From helping you to relax to assisting you in overcoming feelings of nausea, the patches are discreet, easy-to-apply, and long-lasting. You’ll have up to eight hours of relief with a single patch, making them the perfect item to include in a self-care toolkit.
- A Journal. Getting in the habit of writing regularly takes time. It has a myriad of physical and mental health benefits, though. Having a safe place to record your thoughts of the day allows you to work through your problems easier. You’re able to come up with a solution that gives you strength and allows you to get past your worries quickly.
- Fuzzy Socks. The best self-care tools engage the senses. In the case of this item, it’s all about touch. Fuzzy socks comfort because they’re warm and soft. They’re great for cold weather days when all you want to do is curl up in bed with a good book.
- Hot Tea. With so many varieties to choose from, you’ll never grow tired of drinking a cup of this delicious beverage. Doctor it up with cream and sugar or drink it plain, whichever makes you feel the best. A few tea bags tucked into your self-care toolkit is always a welcome sight.
Create a self-care toolkit that you can access and use regularly. Each item that you include in the kit satisfies your needs intrinsically. Use them whenever a situation arises that makes self-care essential, whether it’s illness or stress-related. You’ll find comfort in the items you’ve chosen, and you’ll be glad that you have access to them at all times.
