Weekly Wellness Checklist

May 6, 2019 No Comments

Do you have a weekly wellness checklist? If not, then you definitely need one.

Practicing self care is a super important part of looking after yourself. Your wellness is what makes you – if you don’t nourish yourself then how will you grow?

Generally when people think about self love, they picture sitting in a bubble bath with a glass of wine. But that isn’t all there is to self love and wellness. It’s so much more than that.

Let me ask you this question – what do you do every week, without fail, to look after your body, soul and mind? Do you do many things… or nothing?

If you aren’t one to practice self love but want to start looking after yourself, then let me help you by showing you my weekly wellness checklist.

Remember the things you’re grateful for: It’s so important to stay in check with reality and remember to practice gratitude every now and then. This is how we grow as humans and flourish into kind people. Write down a list of 5 things that you are grateful for and why, then reflect.

Have a long shower: Spending a little bit of extra time to pamper yourself in the shower makes you feel good. Take the time to really clean your hair, shave your body (if you do that), exfoliate and don’t forget your skincare. Wash off the weeks bad vibes in the shower and prepare to start a new week. When you get out, slather yourself in your favourite moisturiser and relax.

Have a conversation with someone you trust: There is nothing better than letting everything out and getting an opinion on your thoughts. Having someone who you connect with and can comfortably talk to about anything and everything really helps your soul. Fall into them and make it a weekly thing to unload your thoughts and share your feelings. Let them do the same.

Look in the mirror and praise yourself: How often do we actually take a look at our reflection in the mirror and want to compliment every inch of it? If you don’t do it at all, you should start. It’s important to not only love your mind, but the skin we are in. Our bodies are our home and we must look after them. Start off small and tell yourself you are awesome and you are beautiful.

Go to the gym: I understand not everyone wants to go to the gym, but it is super rewarding. Not only physically, but mentally too. You have a sense of accomplishment once you have done an invigorating workout and it makes you feel good. Try and get to the gym once or twice a week… or, if you don’t have access to a gym, go for a walk a couple of times a week to get your body and brain stimulated.

Read a new book: When do we get to read anymore… hardly ever. Being an adult and having a working schedule is really draining. Even a teenagers schedule with school and sports is tiring. Take a break and crack open a new or favourite book and let yourself fall into the world of whatever you’re reading. You’re not only stimulating and exercising your mind but you’re doing the same to your heart.

Let loose for an hour: When you’re always so serious from working or going to school, you start to lose sense of your inner child. It’s a great thing to let loose every once in a while, so start doing it every day. Dance around the house to loud music, go to a carnival, start singing every day. Anything that makes you happy and makes you feel like a child at heart.

Meditation: Being active and loud is great, but there is a time where we do need to take it down a notch and relax our mind and soul for a little while. Pop some calming music on, sit down wherever you’re comfortable and meditate for an hour. Think about calming things, good times, practise your gratitude… Let go of all your frustrations and worries. As long as you’re calm and relaxing yourself, then you’re good to go.

Make a cleaning list: When you think of a cleaning list, you groan to yourself. Am I right? It doesn’t have to be that way! Cleaning can be really relaxing and allow yourself to feel pride and accomplishment. Start off with a small, daily checklist that you can complete. Having a clean house/room also makes you feel much better; it’s a fact!

Burn some incense: Burning incense is so relaxing and can help you focus on keeping calm. It’s also great for making your room or house smell great, and who doesn’t want that? Grab your favourite scent and let it burn until it has run out.
Congratulate yourself: the most important thing is to congratulate yourself for all your efforts during the day or the week. Be proud of yourself. Be your own cheerleader.

Now that you have seen my version of a wellness checklist, it’s time to create your own.

Don’t forget to look after yourself and remember that you are important, your body is important, your mind is important and your soul is important.

We only have one life and one body, so make it good and look after it.

  • Being a bigger gal, I found it really daunting to self tan in fear that it would highlight all of my cellulite and skin blemishes... I had a fear that it would make my skin look terrible and I would look bigger than I actually was 🥺

I went from being paranoid and never self tanning, to being in love with a self tanning brand called @tantootie - their formula is absolutely incredible. Because it comes in one shade, and how the formula is made... YOU get to decide how dark you want to be, and the best part is, it suits all skin tones.

I am incredibly pale, and when I say that, I mean it. My skin reflects off of the sun and blinds you 😂 But this tan actually compliments my skin and all I do is leave it on an hour, wash it off, and it looks like I have a nice sun kissed glow 😍

Thank you #tantootie for being an amazing Australian brand!
  • The face I make when I see hot cross buns available in shops... 😍

Let’s remind ourselves that just because it’s a new year, doesn’t mean it has to be a “new you”. Changing your physical appearance will not mend your mental scars and being thin will not make you happy. So go and eat all the hot cross buns you want and live fearlessly ❤️ Swimmers: @kmartaus
  • Reminiscing about being a part of this incredible shoot with @everydaylingerieco - it was such a humbling and liberating experience and I’m glad I was able to work with a company who’s valued align with mine.

  • The truth is, the concept of the perfect body is bogus. No body is perfect. The media and the majority of society has been pushing the concept of a perfect body and ingraining it into our minds from a young age.

I’m going to straight up tell you, that it’s bullsh*t. The body you have right now, the one that’s done so much for you... it’s wonderful the way it is.

Your weight, your appearance do not make you who you are. It also doesn’t change the fact that you are a human being and you deserve respect, regardless of what you look like 👏🏻 I’m urging you to challenge your inner thinking’s and let yourself be YOU. Unapologetically you. Don’t let society tell you that you aren’t good enough because you aren’t a tiny size or you don’t have certain coloured hair or eyes.

Show up as yourself and be free. I believe in you ❤️ Bathers: @kmartaus
  • Don’t forget to take some time for yourself after this xmas period. It’s such a taxing time... physically and mentally.

It’s important to look after yourself. Go do something for you!

  • Women need to stick together. Lift each other up. Be supportive of all other women.

When did it become popular to pick on other women and tear them down? I’m not sure, but it needs to end.

How are we meant to push past negative ideals surrounding women if we don’t stick together?

Grab your ladies and be kind to one another. The world will be a better place ✌🏻
  • We shouldn’t need to or have to minimise ourselves to fit into a society that struggles to accept people as human beings.

Don’t let yourself be viewed as tiny. Stand up tall and be proud of yourself. You can do it ❤️
