Warm and Cozy Self-Care Ideas for Winter

While the initial chill in the air is a thrilling and welcome experience, winter can quickly have you feeling like you’re living in a frigid wasteland. It’s cold, it’d dark, and all you want to do is eat and hibernate.

That’s the dream, right? Sign me up for hibernating!

The struggle of the winter months is just too real. Yeah, sure, the holiday spirit is in the air (there are a lot of holidays in the winter, maybe too many), but so is the flu and other viruses.

The absence of warmth and light combined with the 3 month sniffle that just won’t go away can lead to some serious bouts of seasonal depression.

Self-care during the winter months is crucial!

How to Find Your Tribe of Soul Sisters

I’ve heard so many times in the past 5-10 years, “your vibe attracts your tribe.” But no one actually explained to me how to do that, how to know my vibe, or how to send the vibe out so people could find me (that’s what you’re supposed to do right?!).

It took years, but I’ve finally seen the truth of that statement. And I’ve finally started attracting friends that I trust and feel supported by.

So, if you’re feelings a little lost in this vast and lonely adulthood jungle, trying to figure out how exactly to find your people, I want to share my experience with you.

Minimalism for the Highly Sensitive

It wasn't until recently that I discovered I'm a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). 

Ok, so I knew I was very sensitive, but I didn't know it was a thing. I had always just thought something was wrong with me.

If you're highly sensitive, too, then you know as well as I do that life can get overwhelming fast. But minimalism has been a huge help in my life in keeping down the overwhelm and allowing me to better cope with my sensitivities. 

I believe, for the highly sensitive, minimalism is a must. Here's why.

What It Means To Be Highly Sensitive

Some people over-think things, but I think you over-feel things.

That's what a college friend said to me one day. The truth of it hit me hard at the time, I thought maybe I was broken or just over-reacting about everything. 

I didn't realize yet what a beautiful thing it is to be sensitive.

Living as a highly sensitive person has its challenges, but it is a beautiful experience. 

Are you trying to figure out of you're a HSP? Or are you just curious about what that actually means? Here are some characteristics of the highly sensitive and how they play out in my life.

An Introverts Guide to Self-Care

If you've been hanging around for any length of time, you've probably gathered by now that I'm an introvert. 

And not a subtle introvert, I'm practically a borderline hermit.

I'm not ashamed of that. It's who I am. And even though I haven't always been confident in my skin, I've grown to see my introversion as one of my strengths.

But, it's no secret that there are some struggles that come along with being an introvert. I've found that it can be hard to find time for self-care, even though I do spend a good bit of time at home recharging.

The Benefits of Having a Do Nothing Day

I love vacations.

But doesn't everyone?

They're kinda the best thing ever. And usually the very first day I'm back at work after a vacation, I'm already daydreaming and waiting for the next one.

And that's because, if I don't plan a vacation for myself, I usually end up running myself ragged with work and chores. Every weekend or random day off gets filled up with chores and errands and being an adult.

How Minimalism Helped Me Find Myself

It almost seems like such a weird thing to say, but pursuing minimalism helped me find myself. What does that even mean, am I right? Shouldn't I already know who I am? Unfortunately, as many of us know, finding ourselves is a lot trickier than it should be. 

Over the years,  I had acquired so many things. Things that society told me I should have. Clothes that other people told me I should own. I even listed to music and watched tv shows that other people told me I should like.
