Daily Self-Care Ritual

My aim for my clients is to develop a deep sense of self-worth. It's easy to forget the importance of caring for ourselves - often we find ourselves doing things that our partners love, that entertain children in our lives or make our family members proud. Today, I invite you to pause and explore how daily self-care can reinforce your worthiness.

Below I have set out four simple yet powerful daily rituals designed to help you remember your emotional well-being is important. The consistency of a ritual reinforces the idea that self-care is not just a luxury, but an integral part of a fulfilling life.

Morning Sunlight
Field Sunset

I encourage you to start your day with 10 minutes of sunlight to increase your emotional regulation, a small walk or cup of coffee outdoors. 

Sunlight Exposure has a lot of benefits:

  •  Regulates your internal body clock that governs your sleep-wake cycle (better sleep and energy levels)

  •  Triggers the release of serotonin (improved mood, reduces depression)

  • Positively impacts cognitive function (more focus, concentration, and alertness)

  • Reduces levels of cortisol (the stress hormone).

Daily Song Choice

Purposefully select a song each day for reflection or pure enjoyment. Take 5 minutes of each day to choose a song YOU want to listen to. 

When you select a song that aligns with your current emotions, it allows you to explore and express feelings in a healthy and constructive way. This emotional release can contribute to better mental well-being.

Music App
Daily Treat
Freshly Baked Donuts

Dedicate a moment daily for a personal treat.

It could be sipping tea while tuning in to your favorite radio station, enjoying a cookie during lunch, or watching a favorite show. 

Selecting a personal treat is a form of self-recognition. It's an intentional act where you acknowledge your own needs, desires, and preferences. This daily practice sends a message to yourself that deserve moments of pleasure and indulgence.

Use this to challenge negative self-talk or beliefs that may undermine your sense of deservingness. This daily affirmation helps build a positive self-narrative.

Sleep Routine

I encourage you to priorities 6-8 hours of sleep each night. One effective strategy for achieving this is to establish a consistent bedtime, allowing for a one-hour grace period. Aim for a regular morning wake-up time as well. For instance, if your bedtime target is 10.30pm, consider going to bed between 9.30pm and 11.30pm to maintain a steady and beneficial sleep routine. The benefits of good sleep are:

  • Hormone regulation (manages stress, growth, and appetite)

  • Enhanced mood (prevents anxiety and depression)

  • Reduces risk of chronic conditions (such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases)
