I made self-care wallpapers for you (again!). I look at my phone a gazillion times a day, so what better place to put a reminder to take care of myself? My cell phone wallpaper is always something inspiring because I need it in my life. I thought maybe you would too! I need all the reminders I can get to remember to pull my head out of the clouds (sometimes rainy, thunder-y clouds) and remember to take care of my self. So, I love browsing The HungryJPEG (<–affiliate link. Don’t get addicted, you’ve been warned!) for new graphics and fonts to use.

When I created the Self-Love Workbook I really wanted it to be a tool that you could use not just for self-care, but for all areas of your life. That’s why, instead of just being your standard workbook full of questions, it also has coloring pages, a day planner, and a monthly review section. I was just getting into bullet journaling when I created the SLW so I really wanted something that had space for you (and me!) to just go with it. You can customize it to your heart’s content! What is bullet journaling? Bullet journaling is quick and

How many times have you looked in the mirror and said or thought something terrible about yourself? Called yourself fat, ugly, unattractive or something along those lines? Disparaged and insulted your lumps and jiggles or the places that just aren’t filled in the way you’d like? Closed your eyes and wished that some magical genie would appear in the bathroom and move all of your fat to the right places, or make it disappear altogether? We’ve all been there. We have days when we look in the mirror and we don’t like what we see. When the dressing room mirror becomes

It’s so hard to use your voice sometimes. Love me like this. Treat me like this. Respect me like this. It’s difficult to ask for what you need. There are so many things wrapped up in those feelings. Fear of rejection. Fear of not being valued. Fear of asking too much. Fear of being met with anger, resentment, apathy. So much fear. Instead, we quiet our voices. Stuff it down. And we give and give and give, hoping that it will somehow fill in that space. That if we can just love enough and give enough it will be reflected

If you’re struggling to create time for self-care or you’re trying to discover what kinds of self-care you need in your life right now, check out the Self-Love Workbook. It’s 250+ pages of self-care worksheets, planner pages, and so much more. It’s designed to help you discover exactly what kind of self-care works for you, and it is very you-specific. I’ve also created the Self-Love Guide, a 12-week program full of meditations, printables, and videos and (Be)Loved a 30-day morning self-care practice. With self-care, there is no one-size-fits-all formula. Everyone needs something a little different. Self-care: Actions you perform to

In May I was going through a period of depression. Nothing new, it’s been that way my whole life and it’s always a reminder to start taking care of myself more, loving myself more, and connecting with myself more. I have been all about wrapping myself in a warm blanket of love and comfort day after day after day. I love how good I’ve become at taking care of myself like that. It’s taken years of practice to not feel inconvenienced or annoyed by my own needs. To make time for myself and not feel resentful that I’m not being “productive”.

It’s almost a brand new month! That means it’s time to grab your Self-Love Workbook, turn to the monthly review pages for June, and let it all go. Release, release, release. Next, turn the page and start filling out your goals and self-care plans for July. Need to make a to-do list so that you can stay on top of it all? There’s a spot for that. I never much liked summer until I started managing my depression and practicing self-care. It made me actually want to go outside. I remember it clearly, even though it was eight years ago. That

The internet can be a wonderful place, in fact, most of my friends live there. Yet, it can also be a place full of trolls, hatred, and unhappiness, especially for a sensitive person like me. Before I unfollowed, unliked, and unfriended the things that brought me down there were many times when a perfectly good mood was ruined by the internet. You log on first thing in the morning and where’s the first place you go? Maybe you check your email, the news, Facebook, or catch up on the latest celeb gossip. I don’t judge, but I have a question?

If you fall anywhere on the scale of nature-loving-pagan then you know that tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, one of the solar holidays, which means it marks the beginning of a certain season. Well, hello there Summer. The Summer Solstice, also called Litha, is when the Sun is at the peak of its power. The days are longer and it’s shining hot and bright in the sky. Soak in that warmth (but use sunscreen). It’s also when the Faery Folk come out to play. Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, anyone? It’s a day of light and is the perfect time

I unknowingly made my own Self-Care Kit almost five years ago. I was feeling pretty down and going through a period of intense depression. I got on facebook and asked my friends to send me a message telling me that they loved me and then telling me why, so I could print them out and keep them. I asked the same from the people I knew around me. The result was a collection of little notes telling me how loved I was. I put them in a shoebox, added candy, my favorite tea bags, and a list of things to do
