A self care guide and worksheet for September

In this post I want to talk a little bit about self care. Self care ties in with the entire self improvement realm and forms a very significant part of it actually. In order for our mental, physical and intellectual selves to improve, it is necessary to take care of them from time to time.

After a rough month, I'm looking forward to actively practice self care in September. I decided to share this with you in the hope this might inspire some of you to take care of yourselves as well.

Self care for September

I made a self care checklist for myself for the month of September. This list includes things that bring me joy and comfort and also things that promote my wellbeing and growth as a person. That is what self care means to me.

Here is my list:

  1. Write a letter as your future self

  2. Make a list of things you want to see yourself doing career wise in 5 years

  3. Start reading a book on personal finance

  4. Write down an ideal work-life balance day in your life

  5. Spend one full day reading fiction

  6. Go stationery shopping in the store

  7. Have a modern family marathon and sandwich night

  8. Spend an afternoon with the girls

  9. Go downstairs to read

  10. Go on a long drive

Self care checklist for September

I made a spread for my September self care in my bullet journal.

I believe that taking the time to make a spread in itself serves as the first act of selfcare. Because that means that I'm taking the time to think and make decisions that would beneficial for me.

I also added a 'basic self care checklist' to this spread. It contains the things that I can do on a regular basis and things I can look back to when I need to take better care of myself.

Here is my basic self care checklist :

  • Working out

  • Coffee

  • Lofi music

  • Journalling

  • Meditating

  • Stretching

  • Call / meet a loved one

  • Sleep

  • Working on SO

  • Getting some fresh air
