Snow Days ❄️ are for Self-Care 💝

Spread the love

With much of the country under (some amount of) snow, I’m declaring today a snow day!! Yes, I know. With everything going on with COVID, snow days {for many of us} are a thing of the past. We can now dial in and work remotely and all the good stuff… BUT – just because you can work from home all day, every day doesn’t mean you always should.

Above is a view from my porch this morning. What you don’t see in the picture is the sheet of ice under the snow {because it was 40 and raining last night), the blistering winds, or the below 0 windchills…conditions like this make me very happy to not have to leave the house.

And, here’s a view from inside, on my sofa. Feet up, the warmest {and ugliest} blanket I own, a hot cup of coffee, fire blazing, and some of the best {and worst} reading material I could find. Oh, and we can’t forget I’m also wrapped up in my ‘purple people sleeper’ – my footed, hooded onesie!

I intend to spend a large chunk of my day right here – staying warm and sedentary. This sounds like the perfect ‘bonus day’ to me!

What do you like to do with your ‘extra bonus days’?  I really like to spend at least a portion of the day having some ‘me time’…it just seems like a wonderfully sudden luxury that I have to take advantage of.  Here are a few self-care ideas if you’re looking for something to spark your interest: 😉

  • Read a book
  • Play a board or card game
  • Rest {or nap}
  • Find a new podcast
  • Phone a friend {or text or write}
  • Write-a letter or in your journal
  • Build a snowman
  • Make snow angels
  • Go sledding
  • Take a bubble bath
  • Bake or cook
  • ‘Clean up’ your social media
  • Learn something new
  • Meditate or Pray
  • Light a candle
  • Binge/catch up on your favorite show
  • Watch your all-time go-to movie
  • Do some online retail therapy
  • Organize one {small} area of your home
  • Create-draw, paint, write, sew
  • Pick back up a 1/2 finished project
  • Play Candy Crush or another mindless game
  • Look through old pictures
  • Build Legos

Self Care and taking some ‘You Time’ is really whatever you want it to be! Find something that fills your cup and soothes your soul and spend even just a few minutes doing that! There’s really no right way to take care of yourself 🥰

I would absolutely love to hear how you’re spending your snow day!! Come on over to Instagram and leave a message on what you’re doing just for you today!
