What is self care?
This question may seem like it has an obvious answer, but the common answer of go take a bubble bath is not always self care. Its more about listening to yourself and putting your own needs first. It may look different for everyone based on what your day looks like and what you personally need to recharge.
This bingo game is meant to be fun and help you to think about yourself a bit. Its not meant to be homework, but if you are a goal motivated person, it may be beneficial to have a check list. If working on this goal with a friend it can give you a good place to begin brainstorming or checking in with each other.

Make Self Care a Habit
Just like the advice we get on airplanes – put on your own oxygen mask first before helping someone else. Because if you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to assist them properly.
It’s the same when you neglect your body and mind – you can’t be the best version of yourself, especially when others depend on you. But here’s the good news: with a self-care routine that brings you joy, you’ll experience the awesome benefits of a healthier mind and body.
If you want to stick with a habit for good, one simple and effective thing you can do is keep a habit tracker.
–James Clear, author of Atomic Habits
