Self-Care Ideas Using Mason Jar

How to Use a Mason Jar to Make You Feel Happy and Stress-Free

You made a promise to do more self-care, but you've had a hard time following through. Making time for you won't happen unless you carve out the time. And guess what, you can use a mason jar to make it happen (so very Pinterest of you!).

Cut out strips of paper and write down all your favorite self-care ideas. Then you decide how you want to play this little self-care game. Start a new routine where you choose one every day, choose one a week, or maybe three on a weekend. Do it in a way that feels fun and easy. Here are some ideas you can write down. (Note: I color-coded the paper so white means you can do it at home and pink means you have to do it somewhere else).
