My winter self-care checklist + FREE PRINTABLE CHECKLIST!

Winter Self-Care

The winter months are a time to be cozy and spend time with family and friends. But what if you’re feeling tired, sluggish, and unmotivated? If you are like me then those feelings can make it hard to stay healthy. So in this blog post, we will go over some of my favorite self-care tips (Self care workbook) that help me feel better during the colder months when I need extra support for keeping up with my routine.

Self-care guide

  • Self-care is important
  • There are many ways to make self-care a priority
  • Use these tips when you need them (and don’t be afraid to change your mind!)

Self-care tips

Self-care is important. It’s not a luxury or a one-size-fits-all, but it can also be simple as taking a breath and sitting down.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed by the demands of life, take that time to unwind by doing something for yourself. Whether that means exercising or reading a book in bed (or both). The important thing is that when you make self-care part of your routine, it will become easier over time.

Affirmations and yoga

Affirmations are positive statements you can say to yourself. They help improve your self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself, which is one of the most important things in life!

For example, if you struggle with anxiety or depression, affirmations might be helpful for getting rid of those feelings because they encourage positivity instead of negativity. An affirmation could look like this: “I am strong enough to cope with my anxiety.” Or maybe this one: “I always have courage in me.” You get the idea–it doesn’t matter what kind of affirmation works best for YOU!

The first step is finding out what works best for YOU by practicing writing down a bunch of different ones until you find ones that really resonate with YOURSELF (and then reread them every time there’s a tough moment). Then pick ONE OF THEM as your personal mantra throughout winter break so that when times get tough (which they will), all those positive vibes will come rushing back into your life!

Bath bombs

Bath bombs are a great way to pamper yourself and relax. They’re also a fun way to experiment with different scents, colors, and textures.

To make your own bath bombs:

  • Add food coloring to the mixture if you’d like! This will give them their vibrant hue or add some subtle color if you want something more muted but still pretty. For example, if I wanted pinkish-purple then I’d use purple dye when making my bath bomb mixtures (I also use a lot less). If I was looking for something more bright blue/green then I would use blue dye instead.
  • Include other ingredients like Epsom salts or baking soda–these help balance out harsh smells so they aren’t overpowering while soaking in water during relaxation times spent having fun in hot tubs/spas around holidays such as Christmas Eve parties at their friends’ homes where everyone looks festive wearing red suits because they know it’ll be cold outside but inside everyone knows how warmly welcome they’ll find themselves around each other’s company before opening gifts together under decorated trees filled with colorful lights glowing brightly against dark skies above which shine starry nights while light fills up all corners slowly fading away until only darkness remains…

Spa day at home

  • Use bath bombs, candles and essential oils to create an atmosphere that’s relaxing and comforting.
  • Apply a face mask. You can also use one of the many DIY masks available online!
  • Scrub your body with a body scrub or exfoliate with a loofah sponge (or both!). If you have sensitive skin, try using lavender oil on your hands first so that it doesn’t sting as much when you apply it to the rest of your body. I like this one because it leaves my skin feeling extra soft after use:)

Use these self-care tips to stay healthy.

Self-care is important because it’s not selfish. Self-care is an essential part of being a good person, employee, and student.

When you take care of yourself, you feel better overall and can handle stress better. It also helps with your productivity at work or school because when someone is well rested and happy they are more likely to come up with creative solutions for difficult problems rather than giving up on them completely like someone who has been neglecting their health needs may do.


I hope this checklist is helpful for you and your health! Remember: don’t forget to take care of yourself. It’s so important, especially during the cold winter months. But don’t stress out too much about it if you feel lost—I promise that there are plenty of resources out there to help you discover what works for you (like these!). Good luck out there with all these great tips!
