I was thinking about how stressed I was getting about life in general and then it dawned on me that I haven’t really been including self care into my normal routine!
Self care is the intentional approach of, you guessed it, taking care of yourself. Defined in Wikipedia as “any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.”

Self care includes three major pieces that all directly connect to your overall health and wellness – mind, body and soul. I like to think of it as three critical pieces to your overall health and wellness.
Something else to keep in mind is that it’s just not a one and done type of thing, it’s something that you should be doing continually and try to fit it into your regular schedule.. Which makes it a great thing to include in your bullet journal!
Before we jump into how I’ve incorporated it, here are a few of our favorite reads or resources for creating a self-care routine:
How I incorporated self care into my Bullet Journal
I created a cheat sheet for myself (similar to my Miracle Morning cheat sheet) to make it easy to include self care into my normal routine. 60 of my favorite self care items all on one page!
I also include bits of self care throughout my journal. First up is my compliment log.
I simply write the date I received a compliment, the actual compliment and the initials of who said it.
Next is my gratitude spread. I like this one because it helps me be mindful to put down one thing that I’m grateful for each day. I’m grateful for many things but this spread really helps me reflect and acknowledge them all 🙂
(thanks for the inspo, Jen!)
