Why You Need a Self-Care Sunday

I’m not always the biggest fan of social media, but one thing I truly enjoy doing is hopping on for a few minutes every Sunday to see what people are up to for #SelfCareSunday.

If you’re not familiar with the #SelfCareSunday hashtag trend, it’s one of the more positive things you’ll see on social media. Simply put, people share what they’re doing to give themselves some much-deserved TLC.

I find it inspiring to see people taking time each week to practice self-care and to share it with others. Too often, we crowd our days with busy-ness, chores, and give so much attention to work and family, and rarely celebrate taking special time for ourselves.

If you’d like to take a few minutes this Sunday to practice self-care, here are five ways you can show yourself some love:

1. Take a walk in nature and enjoy the budding flowers and scents of spring.

2. Cozy up with a good book and let your mind get lost in the pages.

3. Get started on our new Love Yourself More workshop and start being kinder to yourself.

4. Spend a few minutes acknowledging all that you’ve accomplished so far this year and get intentional about what you’d like to do next.

5. Cook up a tasty meal that will delight your taste buds and nourish your body.

I’d love to hear what you’re up to for #SelfCareSunday. Tag me on Instagram @EveryDayHappy.Life to share with me. 🙂

Enjoy yourself today!

With love,

Emily and Team EveryDay Happy

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.
