Putting yourself first is difficult for most moms. Self-care is never a priority, even though it should be. But mental health is extremely dependent on creating an atmosphere where we can make sure our own needs are being met, while we also take care of the people we are responsible for.
I shared a printable summer self-care bingo sheet last year, and I had several emails requesting one for winter. I created this one nearly a year ago, but I never got around to posting it. But with everything going on in the world right now, I think it’s more important than ever to focus on taking care of ourselves.
Mental healthcare is the same as any other type of healthcare. It requires us to manage our symptoms and put in the effort to do what it takes to keep on top of our problems. Self-care is one of the easier things we can do to manage our mental health.
I hope you’ll take advantage of some of these ideas. Simply print it off and try and see how many items you can check off this winter.
Once you’ve done a few, you can start trying to get a BINGO by getting five in a row. Or, if you’re extra ambitious, try and get a full blackout bingo by doing all of them!
If you’re looking for help on how to practice good self care, why not start off with writing some daily affirmations? Setting your intentions will be a great head-start in reminding you to take time for yourself.
Remember to set yourself some goals you can work toward. Allow yourself the freedom to enjoy life and be the best version of yourself you can be. You’ll be so glad you did!
If you’d like me to create more self-care BINGO cards for other seasons, please feel free to leave a comment below, and I’ll do my best to get on it. If you have any other requests for self-care ideas, let me know those, as well. I’m happy to create more printables if there is a need for them.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to check out my mental-health blog, too.
