    Feel Good Evening Self-Care Ideas

    1 | Check in: What do you need to feel good? 

    Evening is a great time to check in and get honest with yourself: what do you really need to feel good?

    Maybe a glass of wine or a zoning out on Netflix is really what you need.

    Or maybe turning everything off and talking with your partner or friend is what you need.

    Try to spend a moment turn off autopilot and instead to tune in.

    2 | Create an Evening App Folder

    Creating folders on your phone can be a great way to create boundaries for yourself when it comes to evening self-care as well.

    Consider creating a folder on your phone for apps that contribute to feeling good and winding down: meditation, podcasts, spiritual inspiration.

    Whatever it is, make a morning folder that you can open without getting distracted.

    3 | Create a Phone Cut-Off Policy

    If endless scrolling has you feeling distracted, burned out, or burned out, consider a phone cut-off policy.

    Pick a time, say 8:00 or 9:00 pm, and then turn it off, plug it in, and walk away.

    Quitting the nighttime scrolling habit can be hard at first, but it counts as some major self-care.

    4 | 20-Minutes to Morning Success

    I know, I know, the last thing you want to do after a long day is any more work.

    But hear me out: taking 20 minutes to set up for the next day can make a huge difference, especially if mornings feel overwhelming and chaotic.

    Set the timer on your phone and spend 20 minutes getting ready for the next day: lay out your outfit, pack your lunch, prep your breakfast.

    Notice this 20-minutes is to get yourself ready, not necessarily anyone else. Consider the time a gift to your future self.

    5 | Gratitude List

    Not into journaling?

    Try making a simple list of 3 things you were grateful at the end of each day.

    Keep it simple and specific: a moment, a memory, a feeling.

    Jot down 3 things and then spend a moment to soak in the feeling. More on gratitude journaling, here.
