Give Yourself the Gift of Self-Care

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow — the perfect time to show yourself a little love and focus on a few self-care strategies.

If you’re done with rehab, you already know the crucial role self-care plays in your recovery. And, by now, you also likely know that self-care is about much more than healthy hygiene and eating habits. It's about nurturing your whole self — body, mind and spirit. 

Carve out some “me-time” and put these self-care tips into action today: 
  • Warm up some soothing tea and enjoy some quiet time.
  • Snuggle up with an inspirational book that makes you want to be a better you.
  • Put on your favorite music and sink into a bubble bath.
  • Tap into your creative side – color, draw, paint, write poetry, etc. 
  • Go for a long hike or stroll and soak up the sun.
  • Light a scented candle and meditate with your favorite mantra.
  • Set the alarm early so you can see the sunrise.
  • Take time out to paint your nails or give yourself a pedicure.
  • Come up with a new recipe incorporating your favorite healthy foods, herbs and spices.
  • Get a fancy glass and treat yourself to water infused with cucumbers, lemons or raspberries.
  • Pop some popcorn and watch a funny movie with a loved one.
  • Take a nap.
  • Break out your journal and jot down five things you’re grateful for – or five things you love about the new sober you!
  • Try something new – whether a new fitness class or new recipe.
  • Volunteer or cook a meal for a friend – giving back will make you feel great about you.
