Self care can seem overwhelming and hard to incorporate into our busy daily routines, but that’s not true. In this post, I’ll share several simple ways to incorporate self care into your daily routine that aren’t hard or complicated and don’t require extra time and money.
I’ve been part of a blogging group called the blogger squad for about a month now with some amazing blogger friends! We decided to do a collab with a focus on self care. I’ll link all their blogs so you can go read their posts as well :))
welcome or welcome back to christina and camera! today’s post is allll about journaling which is something I’ve gotten a lot more into recently. If you’re an OG you know that over the last few years I always tried to make this a habit but it never worked out. Over the past few weeks, I’ve turned a corner with this habit and have been doing it almost every day. if you want to hear the secret, keep on scrolling :))
There’s something about a new year that just feels fresh. For me, January is a month of new beginnings. It feels like a fresh start and a new page. I’m personally much more focused on my goals this month, and I think most people feel the same way. Let me know if you like this month’s inspiration pictures by commenting down below :))
When this is posted, there will be 3 days until 2021, which is crazy. This year has been different than anything any of us have ever experienced, but there have also been many good memories that we’ve made. Today I just wanted to recap the year :))
There are only 4 days until christmas which is absolutely crazy! I sound like a broken record, but this year/month has gone by so quickly. I know I’ve shared a lot of christmas content already but today’s post is going to be some christmasy quotes and inspo as we count down the days until the holiday. have a wonderful day <33
what is your favorite christmas quote? let’s chat in the comments ❤
As I’m sure we all know, this year has been different than anything we’ve ever experienced before. Since a lot of things have changed because of covid, we can’t do all our traditions or fun christmas activities that we normally do. Because of that, I decided to make today’s post a fun christmas bucket list, but everything is covid safe and things you can do at home 🙂 love you all and I hope you have a wonderful christmas! stay safe ❤
decorate your room
I decorated my room for christmas and it makes me feel so festive! You don’t even have to have a tree (mine was $20 at walmart and I love it), just add a fun christmas pillow or throw blanket, light a christmasy candle, and voila!!
make a christmas playlist and turn up the volume
This is literally so easy to do but it’s so fun! Add all your christmas songs to a playlist and turn the volume all the way up. It gets you in a festive mood for sure.
make christmas cookies
I think most people did this every year even before covid, so it’s nice to have that sense of normalcy in an otherwise abnormal season. This is also a fun family activity and little kids love helping decorate the cookies :))
do a gingerbread house decorating contest with your family
This is also something fun you can do with your family! This year we bought a little gingerbread house village (five tiny houses) and I’m so excited to decorate them with my family. You can even do it over facetime with your friends if you want to!
read luke 2
Obviously this will not mean much to you if you are not religious but if you are a Christian this is definitely something you can do! Luke 2 is the story of Jesus’ birth, which is the real reason we celebrate Christmas. My family does this every year on christmas eve and it is a great way to remember the true reason for the season ❤
donate to people in need
This is something you can do every year, but especially this year, with so many people getting sick and losing their jobs, this is very important. We have so much to be grateful for in our lives and I’m sure you have something that you can share with others. While a lot of places where you can volunteer are temporarily closed, you can still help those in need from the comfort of your home. One option is toys for tots! You can do this right from your computer or phone and it only takes a few minutes but it will mean so much to a child this year.
Will you be doing any of these things? Have you done any already? I forgot to mention – something else you can do is make a yummy cup of hot cocoa :)) super easy and festive! let’s chat in the comments below ❤
