Self-Care Tip: 5 Ways To Be Kind To Yourself

A small act of kindness can go a long way. A smile can brighten someones whole day. A thank you can make someone feel appreciated. And giving yourself some positive self-talk can completely change the way you feel about something. Kindness matters, especially being kind to yourself.

When the topic of being kind is discussed, it’s usually about a kindness someone else has done, or something you might have done for someone else. All types of kindness are important. Every single act of kindness (no matter who is doing it) helps spread more kindness. But in the process of being kind to others, are you also being kind to yourself?

You can be kind to yourself in many ways. In this post, I have listed 5 ways to show more kindness to yourself.

1. Positive Self-Talk is one of the biggest ways you can be kind to yourself. It can be easy to fall into the pattern of negative self-talk. In fact, you probably do it all the time, but may not even be aware of it. I challenge you to see if you can catch how you talk to yourself.

Are you being your own cheerleader? Are you giving yourself positive feedback? Are you being encouraging and compassionate? Are you forgiving yourself for past mistakes? I bet you say these kind of encouraging words to your friends and family all the time, so why not say them to yourself as well?

2. Do Something Nice For Yourself is a really great way to put yourself in a good mood. Maybe you deserve a nice massage? Or perhaps a new hair cut? What about a new outfit that makes you feel fabulous? Or maybe just an extra long soaking bath?

When you take the time to do something nice for yourself, you are showing kindness and love to a very special person––yourself. Isn’t that a beautiful thing?!

My Etsy Shop Is Now Open!

I’m so excited! My Etsy shop is finally up! It took a little while to get the files ready and the pictures for the store completed, but it’s all done.

Even though Etsy does suggest ten items to start a shop, I settled for five. That’s what I all I could do for now, but I am working on more content. In fact, any guided journal I make for paperback for Amazon will also be made as a printable for Etsy.

So for now, I am only offering printables on Etsy. I will be offering digital journals at some point in 2021, but I really haven’t had much experience with digital journaling. I guess I’m a bit old school and really like having that physical book to write in. But I look forward to starting my digital journal journey and see where it might lead.

Right now I have the following Printables available on Etsy…

I Feel Peaceful Because…

I Feel Appreciation For…

In This Moment, I Feel…

I Feel Joyful Doing…

The Daily Self Care Journal

Each printable journal is offered in two sizes, Letter and A5, and in color and grayscale for each size, which is a total of 4 downloadable PDF files.

I really love the idea of doing printables because you can print what you want when you want. You can also mixed up the writing prompts if you want as well. There’s also the added bonus of being able to print off on different types of paper.

So if you like getting creative with your journals or just want to try some of journal writing prompts without committing to buying a paperback, then this is the way to go!

Look for more offerings in my Etsy shop coming soon!

And just a note: I just added a Guided Journal Page to this blog so it will be easier to find out about what journals are available and in what format.
