Spring Self Care Ideas Card Deck Printable

Spring Self Care Ideas Card Deck Printable

Putting this printable deck of spring self care ideas together for you was a two day labor of love! I dove into all of my old tools that I used to use for myself – especially to pull out of the winter blues every spring. The way I would incorporate these self care habits into my daily life was to simply make ‘self care’ a recurring task on my Todoist to-do lists. Then I would choose from a list of ideas based on how much time I had on any given day. You can print out these cards on thick paper, or on regular paper and laminate them, too.

I made sure that almost all of these suggestions are free or almost free – all you need is time. And many of them can be adapted to fit into the busiest of schedules, so please give yourself the gift of a little care and make yourself a priority. I also suggest doing these activities with  slowness and mindfulness. 5 minutes of simply observing nature is better for your soul than trying to plan a perfectionist picnic. In fact, just shush that perfectionist voice while you’re doing these things altogether!

Check out our summer self care ideas card deck, too!
