What Types of Self-Care to Schedule Into Your Calendar + Why




For busy people, calendars and schedules can be your best friend. I know I’d be lost without mine. They help reduce stress and manage your time, keeping you organized with daily activities. Calendars are also a great tool to help you stay on track with your self-care and wellness goals. I personally like Google Calendar because of the color coding and ability to share the calendar with others.


I’ve broken down the different types of self-care to help you determine what types of self-care you can schedule into your calendar. I also listed some activities to schedule to give you a few ideas for each form.
