A Stress-Free Guide to Planning the Perfect Self-Care Day
  • Opening Intro -

    With midterms only just finished and final exams around the corner, student stress levels have never been higher.

    The hustle and bustle of schoolwork and a social life only add to the pressure.


Take a step back and ease your mind, body, and soul with this guide to planning the perfect self-care day.

Spend some time by yourself

The key to planning the perfect self-care day is in the name. Your self-care day should be dedicated entirely to yourself and your needs.

Partaking in a moment of quiet meditation is a great way to commune with yourself and gain a bit of introspection. Infusing your meditation practice with aromatherapy or healing crystals can lead to a more fruitful practice and outcome.

You can further promote the intent of your meditation practice by meditating alongside specific healing crystals. Meditating with amazonite, lepidolite, and other calming crystals can help wick away the stress of your upcoming final exams, projects, and papers.


The constant onslaught of texts, tweets, and posts can quickly become overwhelming. Taking a day to disconnect from the digital world may be just the thing you need to clear your head.

Even spending just a few hours offline can do wonders for your overall mental health. Whether you spend the day reading, hanging out with friends, or taking a walk outdoors and simply enjoying nature, going about your day sans electronic devices will help you make the most of your self-care day.

Do what you love

You are the star of your own self-care day. This day should be all about you, so spend it with the people you love and doing activities you enjoy. Fill your day with your favorite foods, music, movies, or activities.

When planning your activities, try your best not to overthink things. Follow your gut and do what feels right. If you want to plan a busy day full of fun and exciting activities, do that. If you prefer a quiet day spent at home on the couch, do that instead.

On your self-care day, the only person you need to please is yourself, so indulge in your favorite things unabashedly and enjoy your much-deserved “me” time.

other valuable tips:

Organize your life

Self-care looks different for everyone. For some people, it involves a long bubble bath and a relaxing face mask. For others, it’s all about planning, organizing, and getting all your ducks in a row.

Setting aside time to organize your space and schedule can help ease some of the stress and anxiety you may feel about your upcoming class projects. Clearing your physical space will also help you clear your mind, and you’ll be able to conquer the rest of your schedule with an unclouded headspace.
