How Do You Fill Up Your Cup?

A gentle reminder

Sometimes I like to do this thing where I pick a few words or a phrase to set the tone for my week! This week’s phrase is “fill up your cup.”

It’s basically a reminder to be nice to myself — to do things throughout my day and week that replenish my physical or mental well-being in some way.

Are you good about filling up your cup?

I’m notoriously not great at it. I’m the type of person who will move throughout my day from morning until night constantly checking off task after task to keep work and life going, but I’ll forget to build in time for myself to truly rest and recover.

So, I’m trying to get better at filling up my cup! Because I love lists, I started by making a short one:

  • Get enough sleep (go to bed at 8)
  • Wake up at 5:30
  • Enjoy all the personal care things: skin care, doing my hair, ironing my outfit for the day, etc.
  • Spend the rest of the time before 7 doing fun stuff just for me! Ideas: Journaling, reading, working out (but it can’t be torturous, something like stretching or yoga)
  • Some kind of fun hobby, like photography

It’s only been two days and I can already feel a difference in my body and in my mood. I think it really helps to have that time to do something kind for yourself that’s for you and you alone.

In what ways do you fill up your cup on a daily basis?

Do you paint, workout, dance or read? I would love to know what nourishes you.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
