Journal Prompt – Luxury & Self Care

Now is the time to take out your journal and pen. Let’s take three deep breathes: in through the nose, out through the nose, again breathe and feel your diaphragm move slow and deep, lastly one deep breathe in the nose and out through the nose … breathe and feel relaxed. Now, return to your normal breathe.

I want you to create two lists. The first list are those things you enjoy that cannot cost a dime. The second list can involve investing in yourself financially. The purpose of this exercise is to see luxury and self-care in a new light. For each list I wish you to come up with 8 items.

Write: I feel amazing when ….
This is the time to list anything that makes you feel fantastic, beautiful, cared for, loved, sexy, decedent, luxurious …. just flat out amazing!

  1. My list of 8:
    “No cost” I feel amazing when:
    1. I spend a portion of my day listening to or reading a good book.
    2. I start my day with Dean’s Beans (my brand of choice) coffee.
    3. I get a good beating from a play partner.
    4. I shave with my safety razor and eco-friendly shaving cream.
    5. I am working on a crochet project, particularly for someone I care about.
    6. Coloring!
    7. I take time to remind myself of the parts of my body I love.
    8. I take a morning walk with Pokemon Go after breakfast.

    I feel luxurious when:
    1) I eat sushi, seaweed salad, and miso soup
    2) I make snack trays for lunch with brie, olives, prosciutto fresh veggies, and fruit.
    3) I spend my money at a local/small business on homemade eco-friendly products or fanmade nerdy artwork and decor.
    4) I eat organic fair-trade chocolate.
    5) I have a new to me blanket (ex: my Lunafida Kraken hooded blanket)
    6) I am bought new stuffed animals.
    7) I buy new to me clothing that fits me well (Gods I miss thrifting right now…)
    8) I spend money on a massage.
