Self care is something that often comes last on most people’s list of  priorities.

After all, let’s face it, there always seems to be a lack of time for things that involve self care and indeed a never enough time for the long list of things that have to be taken care of everyday. So, who really has time for self care?

However, today is the day this all changes.

Maybe, you’ve been trying to to find ideas of what you can do for self care.

Maybe, you’ve been trying to figure how to keep a solid self care routine going for more than a few weeks. Indeed, maybe, you’re looking for way to make self care a part of your lifestyle.

Maybe, you’ve already started but can’t seem to find a routine that that actually works for long enough.

Whatever your situation is, you’re in the right place! Self care is very important for an overall healthy life, but you already. know that, right?

But did you know that some times, just saying you will start practicing more self care just won’t do the trick? 

Sometimes, it just seem IMPOSSIBLE to find the time, the strength, the motivation, the desire to just do more things that will benefit YOU and ultimately make all the other responsibilities of life seem less difficult. 

As busy moms, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, busy dads, single moms, single dads, students, teachers and the list go, it can become something very common to give all of yourself (your time, your energy, your focus) to everything else in your your life but you. 

It is commonly said that if you don’t practice self care, you won’t be able to care for others. Even I have echoed these same sentiments myself. However, I am starting to realise that this isn’t quite true.

Yes we can, and often do take care of everyone else in our lives but ourselves. We are often burnt out, tired, depressed, sad, lonely, afraid, unhealthy and no one ever knows. We suck it up, do the bare minimum to keep looking  and seeming ‘functional’ and we start the process of caring for everyone and everything that we feel responsible for. Over, and over and over again.

Sometimes, it can take years, for people to realise just how much of themselves they give everyday to the kids, the spouse, the job, the charity, the new business, friends, family. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing this as long as you’re purposely carving out time for yourself, consistently. 

If you’re here, looking for bullet journal self care page ideas, then you’re one of the few people who knows how important it is to be able to not just do good things for everyone else, but also to do good things for yourself. So that you feel good both physically and mentally. After all nobody  wants to be a ticking time bomb!

For me, incorporating self care pages in my bullet journal was the best thing I could have done for my self care journey. Because I use my bullet journal so often, it has helped me to stay on track with my self care routines and this has made a world of difference my life today. I am happier, more content and more at peace and more balanced. Hopefully, these bullet journal self care page ideas will help you feel the same.

Saturday self-care checklist. I sometimes get so caught up in what I “have” to do in a day ( or feel like I “have” to do), that I forget to check in with myself and make sure that I listen to what my body needs. I’m especially bad at hydrating and resting. Resting is my worst. I love the feeling that comes over my body when I do finally lie down; and I often leave it till I’m maxed out. It’s guilt that keeps me from it. Ironically, I perform better and get more done if I rest regularly. #selfcare #bulletjournal #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalselfcare #bulletjournalcommunity #selfcarespread #bujoideas #mentalhealthawareness #cvid #chronicillness #managingchronicillness #selfcarechecklist #bujoinspiration #bujoselfcare #bujolife #planneraddict #plannergirl #primaryimmunedeficiency #bipolar2 #handlettering #
