So here’s the thing.
No one will wake up in the morning and say to himself/herself: “Hmm. I’m not going to love myself or take care of myself today”.
Most of the time, we just forget. Self-care is nothing like an urgent item on your to-do list. When your agenda is all filled up with meetings and project deadlines, self-care has no chance to live.
That’s why we’ve created this printable self-care bingo game with a list of basic self-care ideas. Print it out and try to cross them all in a month or so.
We’ve also created a blank template so you can create your own bingo.
Use it like a weekly or daily self-care checklist or as a reminder.
Keep the same self-care routine on the bingo or switch things up a little bit each month!
