50 Easy self care ideas to improve your mind, body and finances

We all need easy self care ideas!

Many of us live our lives in a constant state of stress, moving from one place to another and feeling like you are never home. You neglect yourself until it catches up with you when the bills start piling up or health issues arise.

Most of us are moving from home to work, spend most hours working and barely have a personal life. This is because we don’t take the time for ourselves or think about our future wealth – it’s just not enough with all those bills to pay!

In the process, our mind, body, health and finances take a serious hit. That’s because we refuse to or cannot find time to pause for a moment to keep an eye on our well-being.

Even if we do not find time, we need to make time. We might need to set priorities, or perhaps take care of these aspects in our leisure time. Whatever it is, self-care is something that we cannot miss. 

So if you are in, but don’t know where to start, here is a list of free self care ideas for you to take your pick.
