Self-care Ideas For The Whole Family: Mental Health Awareness Month

10 May 2021 by

You’ve heard people tell you to “fill your bucket before you fill others’ buckets.” We’ve definitely been more aware of our need for self-care over the past year.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so today we’ve got some great self-care ideas for every member of your family:

Find a hobby

Do you have a hobby? If you’re crafty, get all your sewing materials, general craft supplies, or a new Cricut machine online. Make something for yourself or as gifts for others. Maybe it’ll turn into a mildly profitable side-hustle!

Start daily journaling and practice gratitude

Holding feelings and emotions inside can wreak havoc on your mind and body. Take time every day to journal your thoughts, feelings, wins, and struggles. Write down 3 things you are grateful for every day, and it’ll give your psychological health a boost and make you more aware of the good around you.

Entertainment for the kids/teens

Even your kids and teens need a way to de-stress and just focus on being kids. Challenge your kids with a Lego building set, some Crayola art supplies, a subscription to a gaming site so they can play with their friends, or puzzles.

Family board game fun

Did you ever do family game nights as a kid? Maybe you do it now with your family or friends? There are thousands of new board games, and you can try some of them from Are You Game. Or, buy some new brain teaser games to give your mind a workout! Another option is to start a new jigsaw puzzle on your dining room table.

Gone Fishin’

If you love fishing, grab your gear and tackle box for a day on the lake. Some quiet time on the boat, riverfront, or lakefront is a great way to get some quiet reflection time in or spend quality time with a friend or family member. Be sure to make sure your tackle box is fully stocked before you go.

Get lost in a book

What was the last great book you read? Are you a fantasy fanatic or a romance lover? Grab a hardcopy book to read around the campfire this summer or download a new audiobook to listen to during your summer road trip.

Try new beverages

A great way to unwind is to try new things. Summer is a great time to try new tea, beers, or even specialty wines! Always drink responsibly!

Exercise your worries away

Exercise is good for the body and the brain. Sweat out your stress and worry with a new home gym or basic exercise equipment.

Find ways to escape life and recharge your batteries once and a while. When you feel rejuvenated, your mental and physical health will get a boost too. And, you’ll be able to better support others in your life who need your support or care.
