Self-Care Jar

Instead of looking at Self-Care as an event that happens once a week or so for you, and we share on social media; what if self-care practices became the habits we did for ourselves every day?! Instead of burning ourselves out through the week to get to Sunday to have a bubble bath and refresh, find the things we can do every day so that the bubble bath is just part of your week. This is a great activity to share with your leadership group and beyond.

Creating the Jar

Dig deeper into the topic of Self-Care and facilitate a discussion of what Self-Care means to each individual. This can be led as a group discussion or journal prompts that participants can do individually.

Example Prompt Questions:

  1. What are things that make me happy?

  2. What are positive things in my life?

  3. Is Self-Care something I do every day?

  4. What do I do for Self-Care?

*Facilitator tip: have your own answers ready to share to increase comfortability in the space you are facilitating. Share the importance of Self-Care being an every day thing to do and brainstorm self-care actions individuals can do.

On the slips of paper, have each participant write Self-Care items that they want to try or are already doing and put it in their jar.
