  1. Hi Jade,
    Excellent points you’re making here…I agree, we all need to take some time for ourselves at some point and treat ourselves to something we enjoy. Otherwise, life gets to be too much about all the worries and stress…the things we have to do whether we want to or not. It’s definitely a great way to “recharge” ourselves, which is something we often forget to do nowadays.

    I really like your idea of giving someone the gift of time, by either doing something such as cooking a meal or cleaning for that person if those are things you know they don’t enjoy doing so they have time to do something they DO enjoy. Or, if you can hire someone for them to do those things that’s a great idea too!

    Wow, so many great ideas for gifts here for either ourselves or our friends and family…the MUTU System sounds like an excellent one for us mothers…I know after my son was born, I had a hard time getting back into exercising or even just going for walks…before that, I was bringing our dogs for walks twice a day, plus exercising at least four to five days a week and working full time. It’s now been many years and I still haven’t gotten back to that level of exercise…not even close! Having a baby sure changes things and being a mother we end up forgetting to take care of ourselves too.

    Being able to have quiet time and listening to music are something I really enjoy myself…it not only relaxes me, but recharges me as well so the SleepPhones look like a great idea…I find earbuds quite uncomfortable after awhile, plus they never stay in my ears! So these look like something I’d love to try! I’m wondering if they’re Bluetooth capable?

    Thanks for sharing these ideas, Jade! Definitely going to try some of these for myself and my loved ones!
    Best wishes ~Sherry

    1. Hi, Sherry. Thanks for your lovely comment.

      Yes, SleepPhones are Bluetooth capable! Amazing what people invent now, eh?

      I agree with the exercise. I also used to work out – every day. Sometimes twice a day for a total of 6 hours. I was really fit. 3 years after and I was still at that level where I was huffing and puffing after 30 minutes of walking. The MUTU system was a total gamechanger. Highly recommend! 🙂

  2. Hey Jade, 

    Great article! It’s posts like these that remind me that I should take more care of myself. I used to be big on meditation but I haven’t done for more than a year which is crazy now that I think about it. I might have to try out the fabulous app to get back into the habit of meditating every day.

    1. You’re welcome and it’s amazing! You could also try Real Subliminal since you won’t have to stop doing whatever you’re doing to get the benefits. 🙂

  3. I love the idea of creating a self-care box. YOu have definitely given me some ideas on what to give for Christmas. I know a few people who would benefit from self. Especially the cleaner. 

    One of a friend is notoriously lazy when it comes to cleaning; she will love the thought into her box. Thanks for the great ideas. 

  4. Very awesome and important topic, self care…many times we do forget about caring for ourselves and Christmas time can be very stressful and feel overwhelming at times. I like that you are making people aware of self love and self care for themselves. We deserve to buy ourselves something at Christmas too, why not. I like the ideas you shared and am going to bookmark this site to jot everything down for myself. In fact I am also going to share this on facebook for others because it is very important.
