10 Fabulous Low-Budget Self-care Practices For Every Woman


Hello, fabulous ladies! I'm sure you'll all agree with me that just being a woman is hard work. Not only do you have to deal with all those annoying hormones, but you always have to master the art of managing several competing demands for your time and attention as well as balancing what you really want to do and expectations from all angles. And all this while also looking fabulous. Well, not always fabulous, because sometimes, you can be so stressed by life that you just focus on being able to look presentable. So yeah, you're doing a lot and you always need to remember to take care of yourself.


So, Queens, it's time to put on your imaginary crown and indulge in some well-deserved self-care. Self-care is an act of self-love. The best way is to plan and schedule routine practices into your calendar. From pampering sessions to guilt-free indulgence, I've got 10 fabulous self-care practices that will make you feel like a million bucks (without spending a million bucks). So, grab your favourite snack, kick back, and get ready to prioritise the most important person in your life – you!


1. Treat Yo' Self:

Indulge in a luxurious bubble bath with a side of chocolate and a glass of wine. Add some soothing music and candles to set the mood and you're in for a treat! You deserve it, girlfriend!


2. Sweat It Out:

Get your body moving with a fun workout like a dance session. Now, I know that exercise may not necessarily be your idea of a good time, but endorphins are your besties! It might surprise you how much fun you will have if you try it.


3. Unplug and Unwind:

If you're one of those queens who fall asleep on their phones and wake up to their phones, trust me, your eyes don't like you very much. Apart from that, being online constantly can be hard on your mental health. There is always something hateful or stressful on there. Make it a habit to step away from the screens and enjoy some tech-free time once in a while. Your eyes and mental health will thank you.


4. Pamper Party:

Think about what you would do to pamper an amazing person in your life who deserves the absolute best. Then do it for yourself. Here are some ideas: Schedule a spa day or give yourself an at-home DIY facial. Glowing skin, here you come!


5. Culinary Delight:

Cook a delicious meal with only enjoyment and your tastebuds in mind. Better yet, if you need rest from cooking or you're not the cooking kind, simply order your favourite takeout. Good food equals a good mood!


6. Movie Marathon:

Get some ice cream, plenty of popcorn, or your favourite snacks and catch up on all those movies you've missed. Give yourself a day of indulgence while you catch up on imaginary worlds with Happily Ever After. Um, yes, please!


7. Retail Therapy:

Treat yourself to something special, whether it's a cute outfit or that fancy skincare product you've been eyeing. This is supposed to be a budget-friendly list, so I'll add that you don't have to buy anything too expensive. But whatever you decide, you're worth it!


8. Bookworm Bliss:

Get lost in a captivating book or listen to an inspiring podcast to feed your mind and soul. You could indulge in the joys of reading a paperback or read a fun free Wattpad ebook. You could also purchase a nice book from Amazon or Goodreads.


9. Social Butterfly:

Connect with your besties for a gossip session or a fun girls' night out. There's nothing like letting down your hair and unwinding with the girls. Laughter is the best medicine!


10. Beauty Sleep:

Napping when you feel tired is self-care. Rest when you need to, because burning out is not a queenly option. Also, endeavour to prioritise a good night's sleep because beauty rest is not a myth. Get those Zzz's, queen!


This goes without saying, but self-care isn't selfish, it's essential! So go ahead and show yourself some love, you amazing gorgeous queen!
