How to make your self-care routine more sustainable

Enjoy a staycation

Make breakfast in bed just because and play tourist in your own town.   With staycations. you’ll skip the price tag, stress, and carbon footprint that comes with air travel. Eco-friendly and affordable. 

Self care staycation

The best part of a solo staycation: you’re on your own schedule! That means you can do as little (or as much) as you want. 

But if you want more of a getaway experience, check into a local hotel for a night. You’ll still save $$ by staying local and get to play a little make-believe in your home town.

Kick your bath game up a notch

Yes, baths are a classic self-care choice… but it’s for good reason. Baths reduce inflammation, they kill bacteria, and they just feel really lovely! Create your own bubbly haven with a DIY face mask, bath bomb, and epsom salts… and let the relaxation begin. 

Don’t have a bath? Step up your shower situation instead with shower bombs, exfoliator, and a vegan hair mask from Eco Love. We love the macadamia mask made with nut oils. 

Indulge in something sweet

What’s a self-care list without chocolate? There are lots of yummy vegan chocolates out there, but Hu Chocolate has a special place in our hearts. It’s not only absolutely delicious, but it’s also completely vegan and free of palm oil. Or indulge in these yummy chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies from our Wholesome Culture Cookbook

But if chocolate isn’t your thing or you’re more of a salty tooth, grab some crackers and vegan cheese instead. We all need to treat ourselves every once in a while without an ounce of guilt! 

Write it out

Do you ever feel like you have so much in your mind and no place to put it?! That’s what journals are for! 

One of our favorite journal prompts is: write down the things that are bringing you down and then write a gratitude list. It’s a simple yet effective way to let go of the bad and make space for the good.

And you won’t be the only one that benefits! Research shows that when we’re embrace gratitude in our lives, we’re more connected to ourselves and the planet, which ultimately makes us more mindful of our actions. 

Meditate more

self care meditation

It’s no secret we’d all benefit from more meditation in our lives. Meditation reduces anxiety, improves sleep quality, and enhances empathy. And studies show that when people are more empathetic, they become more concerned about the environment. 

So pause a little more (even though it’s hard!), you’ll benefit and so will Mother Earth.

If you’re craving a long chat with mom (or whoever is your long phone call buddy), give your body some love at the same time with a walk! You’ll catch up, move your body, and get all the endorphins.
