Eat Mindfully for Emotional Self-Care
Feel energized. My #1 emotional self-care activity is to be mindful of how you feel when you eat healthy. You feel good! After all, how does your body look and feel after you eat junk food or drink? Enjoy fresh fruit and veggies, leafy greens, nuts and seeds and lean protein at every meal, mama.
Be A Minimalist for Emotional Self-Care
Feel lighter. Studies show women who have less attachments to goods and materialistic things are happier! This means going shopping to feel better isn’t really “therapy”, it’s taking a step back. This emotional self-care activity will have you de-cluttering your closet to your favorite Spotify station. watch yourself de-stress. You’ll feel amazing after and save cash.
Practice Yoga for Emotional Self-Care

Get Heavily Meditated for Emotional Self-Care
Feel relaxed. Sit down in a comfortable chair, close your eyes and focus on your breath. Women who meditate daily are less reactive to the stressors of life and can handle conflict being calm, cool, and collected. Women who practice emotional self-care activities such as meditation know how to get zen when things get hectic.
Self-Talk With Love for Emotional Self-Care
Feel uplifted. When life gets tough, cheer yourself on in the third person. “You’ve got this girl! Don’t let anything stop you, this is important to you. You don’t have to be perfect. Success is yours!” Positive self-talk can be the deal breaker to your breakthrough. You control your emotions; choose to feel self-motivated!
