Why do you need self care goals?

Having goals, in general, is a must whether it’s for your family, work, or business. When it comes to our own lives we sometimes fall short from providing us the time and attention we need. 

By having self care goals we will be able to carry that excess energy and pour it into other aspects in our lives like family and business. 

Going over your self care goals will provide you a better quality life and help you gauge areas of improvements. Let’s go over some of those goals you need to add to your daily life.

33 Ultimate Best Self Care Goals To Live Your Best Life

1. Start Putting Yourself First

Start taking the time to consider your goals and what it is you want to accomplish. 

This will come with sacrifice so make sure that you take the time to put yourself first because you can’t give what you don’t have. 

2. Restructure Your Daily Habits

Take accountability for what your day-to-day task is. If you are needing to change things around to be more efficient than write it out and start implementing it. It’s never too late to start. 

3. Kick Those Bad Habits

I mean, come one, we all have them. And whatever your bad habits are look for good ones to counteract the bad ones. Are you a smoker and want to quit, take the necessary steps to find programs to help. Are you codependent on others and have a hard time by yourself? Work on seeking help from a professional for underlying causes. Remember you are the only one that can give yourself the life you want. 

4. Take Time for Yourself

Take a nice bubble bath, pamper yourself, start that business you always wanted to start. Whatever that looks like take time for yourself to just that. No one else is going to provide you the comfort and peace of mind of having the life you truly desire, so do it for yourself. 

5. Laugh More

Laughter is the best medicine, never heard of that one? Well okay, but you know what I mean. It takes more muscles to frown than to smile which are the same muscles you use when you laugh (I think). Who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh. 

6. Meditate

Breathe, in and out, slowly. Concentrate on each breathe that you are taking and become more present with each and every breathe. Let the worries of your day be behind you and look forward to what is to come. Listen to healing music, get away from the noise, and put yourself in a place of trance to quiet your mind. Your mind will thank you later. 

7. Be Present

If you are anxious you live in the future. But if you are at peace you are in the present” Lao Tzu.

These are probably one of the best quotes out there. Learn to be more present. It’s a gift that you have always had and another self care goal to add to your list. 

8. Take Your Cleansing Bath

Cleanse yourself in a warm bath. Read a book, or just listen to your favorite playlist with your favorite drink at hand. Infuse your bath with intentions and allow it to revitalize your mind and body. 

9. Travel More

Who said travel was not a form of self care. Traveling expands your mind and allows you to connect to the world in a different way than never before. Allow yourself to wonder and explore areas that you have always wanted to travel to. What’s stopping you is only yourself. There are no more excuses. Go on and book that trip. 

10. Write in your Journal

I’d like to say we are all our own witches nowadays, right? When you spell you are spelling so technically you are casting spells? No, okay well it was worth a try. Take time out to write those feelings down, your dreams, your goals and wishes and watch them come to life. This will help bring your thoughts out and can also be used as a form of therapy. 

11. Learn to say No

Come on, say it with me, “No, thank you.” See, that was not so hard. Learning to say no leaves room for you to say yes to yourself. 

12. Eat Healthy & Stay Hydrated

Your healthy habits encompasses so many things. A few of them included what you eat and how hydrated you keep your body. You are what you eat, and drink. 

13. Mindset with Positive Affirmations

The next time you tell yourself these things: “My head is killing me,” “I am so tired” “I do not have enough money”. Change these thoughts and say this instead, “My head is keeping me alive”, “I am grateful I have a bed to sleep in tonight”, “I have enough money”. Affirm with positive words. You got this! 

14. Listen to Motivational Music

Our music choices says a lot about us. Take the time to listen to music that will leave you inspired and motivated to get things done. 

15. Get Out in Nature

You will be bound to find healing in nature so go out and get that fresh air. Make is a goal to go out for a walk or run sometime during the week.Your body will thank you later. Who loves walking in the rain? 

16. Stay Connect to Your Social Groups

Many of us are guilty of not putting in as much time as they could with this self care goal. Find yourself a group that have the same visions and goal in mind and start rebuilding or building a connection. Remember, it goes both ways. 

17. Love Your Relationship with Money

Money is not a bad thing. It’s how you view it that may be the bad thing. Money allows you to do things that it otherwise could not. Start telling yourself that you have a great relationship with money and then start keeping track of your bank accounts and get savvy with your spending habits. 

18. Keep an Abundant Mindset

There is no room for a lack mindset. Continue to hype yourself up with what you have and are grateful for. There is enough success, beauty, peace, money, you get the point: there is never a lack of anything on this planet. No one else is stopping you but you. 

19. Self Care Gifts

Treat yourself. You deserve it. You work so hard and you make it about everyone else. It’s time to take care of yourself. Self care gifts do not always have to be materialistic they can also come in the form of accomplishing your daily goals and task. Get savvy with your gift ideas to yourself. 

20. Dance More Often

Did you know that when you dance it induces the feel good activators in your body? Well, it does. No wonder people feel so energized and happy when they get done a dance sess. Okay, now don’t go all hard core on Zumba right away. Let your body loose and let it do what it does. 

21. Get a Skin Care Routine

Your mind is important and so is your skin. You already have a skin routine great! If not, then be sure to at least wash your face with water in the morning and at night to help you wake up and get ready for bed. Your skin will thank you later when adding on that SPF! 

22. Make Your Hobbies a Priority

When was the last time you worked on your hobby? If it’s been a while then take some time to get back into what it is that brings you that peace of mind whether that’s writing, singing in the shower, dancing in your room, riding horses, you know all those fun things that you have been holding off from. 

23. Get Spiritual Habits

This will look different for everyone. But if you do not have spiritual habits, highly recommend looking into this no matter what your belief systems are. Pray more often, join a meditation retreat, light a candle, do a spell (just joking, not really, I mean who really reads these things anyways). Whatever gets your vibration higher go ahead and get to it. Your soul will thank you later. 

24. Awaken Your Feminine Energy

By awakening your feminine energy you are providing deep rooted healing into your life. You are allowing the creative energies to flow through you and become more at peace with the person you truly are unapologetically.

25. Breathing Techniques

You have heard it all before but did you know how important this is! Of course you do it’s what is keeping you alive. Doing breathing techniques may help lower stress and anxiety. It will allow you to focus on the present while you pay attention to your breathe. Ready, take a deep breathe, in and out. Now, let it out. Great! Keep it going. Your mind will thank you later. 

26. Learn a New Skill

When was the last time you learned a new skill? Self care means caring for your brain and always keeping it refreshed and updated. Everything else gets update why not you? Take that piano lesson you have been thinking about! 

27. Read a Good Book

Knowledge is power and there are so many wonderful people who have allowed us in on it through their writings. I get it, not many of us have great attention span and we can all use some help in that department. If you are on the road most of the time then look into audiobooks to get those readings in, it still counts!

28. Get a Massage

You have been meaning to get one but just have not found the time. Massages are a great way to destress, relax your body, reduces muscle soreness, and the list goes on. We get it, we wish we can have our own personal masseuse but hey, why not the next best thing with a personal massage gun. 

29. Get Your Rest

We all don’t get the well needed rest that we need for our bodies to function properly. You don’t need to also feel like you need to do it all. Learn to take some breaks and relax your mind for 5 – 10 mins a day. Many of us have a hard time doing this but we all know that we feel better after we get it. 

30. Declutter and Organize Your Life

A clean house is a clean mind. Something like that. When the world around you is a mess (hence your car, house, workspace) then it’s most likely a mess in that head of yours. Now, some of us do work better when things are cluttered and all over the place – but that’s not many. Work on organizing your life so you can manage a better one ahead. 

31. Practice Gratitude

This should be the first one on the list. By practicing gratitude and begin grateful for the things you have in your life now will only bring you more abundance into your life. How can anything better come into your life if you are not appreciating what’s there now? 

32. Take a Break from Social Media

This one may not come easy for many people but taking a break from social media is a must! Unless you are working on it for your business than taking space to focus on you is way better than focusing on other peoples’ lives just for a means of distractions. Find productive ways to entertain yourself (cough cough, like learning a new skill or hobby) 

33. Have Fun

As the wise words from the Joker, “Why so serious?” 

Your life is not meant to be taken so seriously so have a laugh and get out there into the world. Take this time to be okay with the unknown and live your best life!
