Self Care Ideas For The Ambitious Womxn
Posted on February 24 2022
If you are anything like me… you’re probably wondering where the heck have these past 2 months gone. It feels like we just started 2022, but we are already stepping into March! I think we can all agree that the older you get, the faster time flies… especially when you are caught up in the day to day hustle and bustle.
If I’ve learnt anything about avoiding burnout as an ambitious womxn, it’s that taking time for ourselves to reset & recharge is a non-negotiable. Which is exactly why I have put together a list of game changing self care ideas for you to add into your routine this year so that you can do exactly that. Here we go:
1. Morning Affirmations
If you haven’t already jumped on the affirmations train, you are doing it wrong! Not only are affirmations an amazing way to raise your vibration, but they are also an AMAZING way to leave yourself feeling more empowered and confident throughout the day!

I remember the first time I ever sat down to meditate… saying it was a struggle is an understatement. My dog was whining in the background, and I could barely even keep my eyes closed. But the beautiful thing about meditating is that you can do it whatever way works best for you. And the more you do it, the better you will get at it!
What I found works best for me:
- Putting on some meditation music from youtube (preferably something that boosts your aura & cleanses your chakras)
- Meditating after I work out - this helps you get into a deeper meditation faster
- Creating a calm & relaxing space for meditating (Social Babes Tips: Get on a yoga mat, put on your essential oils, and block out as much noise as possible)
3. Doing Something You Love
Whether it’s painting, dancing or reading a book… find the thing that makes you feel more connected to yourself! Personally, I love a good read! Especially if it’s a book that I can get lost in!
If you haven’t yet checked out the Lemonberry Book Club, you are seriously missing out! Not only does it force you to take the time to do something you enjoy, but you also get to be part of a community of like-minded women too! Don’t be afraid to make your self-care social!

Hopefully I’ll see you on the inside!
4. Taking The Time To Get Ready Every Single Day
I’m sure this sounds like a no-brainer for all you fashion lovers reading this. But for somebody who works from home like me, this has always been a little bit of a challenge! Especially because it’s way too easy to want to stay in those comfy PJ’s all day, right?
Taking the time every single morning to get ready (even if it’s jumping into some comfy loungewear) and to do my makeup has been a game changer!
If you struggle with “working out” like me, I would recommend trying pilates!
Pilates isn’t only for the bougie, wine loving, womxn out there! It’s really for anyone who wants to enhance their balance, improve their mood, increase their flexibility and strengthen their core!
My favourite way to get my daily pilates in is with Move With Nicole! She is one of the best pilates instructors I have found on YouTube and I know you will love her just as much as I do!
6. At Home Spa Nights
Who says you have to go to a big fancy spa to show your skin a little TLC?
Having an at-home spa night is one of the best things you can add into your weekly self care routine! Here are a few of my must-have spa night essentials from Lemonberry:
- Relax Bath Soak (Perfect for detoxifying & soothing the skin - especially after a long week).
- Hadaka 24K Gold Mask Trio (Includes an Eye, Lip and Face Mask) that will leave your skin rejuvenated, glowy, hydrated and revived).
- Love Fresh Lavender Body Butter (Lavender is super relaxing & has a mega calming effect)
7. Relaxing Baths
I never used to be a bath person, but over the past few months this has been something I’ve added to my night-time routine!
Adding bubble bath, bath salts, essential oils or even a bath soak like the ones that Lemonberry carries from K’Pure is what really turns your bath into a full blown self care moment.
Social Babe Tip: Bring a cup of your favorite tea (or glass or wine) + a relaxing candle into the bathroom with you for the ultimate self care experience!
One of the biggest misconceptions about self care is that it’s a one size fits all thing, but it’s not. There is no right or wrong way to “self care”! Self care is something that should be personalized to YOU and should always focus on these three things: Mind, Body, and Soul.
This year, I challenge you to find out which self care activities feel best to you and leave you feeling like the best version of yourself! The most important thing is making sure that you take the time for yourself every single day… even if it's only 30 minutes!
Let us know in the comments below which of these self care ideas will you be trying this month!
Here’s to taking some much deserved time for yourself. You’ve got this, girl!
