Fall Self Care Checklist.

I’m a planner girl, if you didn’t know, now you know and I’m all for advocating self care and self love. Having beautiful seasonal decor in my planner is just something that personally makes me happy, no matter what. Also, decorating my house with pumpkin decor is something I love doing.

Why is self care so important?
If you’ve visited my blog before, you’ll notice I have a lot of self care love and self worth posts out there. Why? It’s a passion of mine to spread the word about self care, self worth, self love, and the power of positive affirmations to my audience. Self care is so important because in order for you to have a happy and successful life, you need to be in a good mental state. The beauty about self care is that when you take care of yourself, you are loving yourself.
When you are happy, you’re bringing in that good positive energy into your life. You’re believing something good is about to happen to you. Because God wants you to be happy. God thinks you deserve to be happy and you are worth more than diamonds and rubies. I always thank Him for my many blessings, every single day. I have a lot to be thankful for, and thanking God for the good in my life reminds me how blessed I am. I’m thankful to God for all He continues to do in my life. It’s not something I take for granted.
Keep yourself accountable.
The beauty of having a self care checklist around is to hold you accountable. Sure, I can SAY I’ll take care of myself mentally, physically, and emotionally. But, honestly some days I am so busy, I won’t remember, especially after a trying day with the kids. So, printing out a self care checklist is so very helpful to me. I tape it into my B6 staology, that I am currently planning in, and just check off the items as I go.

Fall Self Care Checklist.
- Buy a fall scented candle, clean up your home, and unwind.
Candles are soothing and aromatic. Personally, I believe the sense of smell is so powerful. Whenever I walk into a good smelling room, filled with delicious smells, I automatically smile, close my eyes, and breathe in deeply. Fall always reminds me of pumpkin spice smell EVERYTHING.
- Write in your prayer journal.
Writing in my prayer journal let’s me talk out everything I am feeling to the Lord. Sometimes, after a particularly hard day with life and the kids, a prayer journal entry is all I need so that I can relax and go to sleep peacefully, without any negative thoughts weighing down my mind.
Fall season is meant for decor.
- Buy a fall inspired face mask and put it on before bed.
- Decorate your home with pumpkin, leaves, and fall decor.
I’m a huge fan of decorating my home for the holidays. To be specific, my favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, I still enjoy decorating for the Fall season before heading into Thanksgiving. I enjoy finding ways to save my family money, so I do shop at the Dollar Tree for cute fall decor and I am never disappointed!
Have your children decorate too!
The fun part is going with my children and letting them pick out a few decorations for their room. It’s a fun little family project to do, that’s even less than a total of ten dollars.

- Put your fall makeup on with natural shimmer eye shadow and the perfect lashes to go with it. You can get your beautiful lashes and eye shadow in the link down below:
- Watch a love movie with your significant other.
Emotional self care is important, too.
Taking care of yourself emotionally counts as self care too. Self care doesn’t always need to be about self care checklists and routines. Self care can be emotionally guiding yourself. A way to do that is to become more sentimental with yourself.
Learning to be sensitive towards your own emotions can help you emotionally take care of yourself better. You’re responding to your needs earlier, and you’ll appreciate yourself for that later. Here’s a great idea for emotional self care:
- Write yourself a letter of :”20 things you love about yourself.” Seal it and save it to read next year in the Fall.
I get sentimental when I look back on old memories and photos, but a letter to myself? That definitely would touch my heart. Especially with what I love about myself, it’s a real confidence booster.
- Have pumpkin pie for dessert.
- It’s pumpkin spice latte time, so don’t forget to stop by Starbucks and pick one up. Or grab the pumpkin spice creamer at the store. It’s out!
- Walk through the crunchy leaves and let your kids jump around in them! So beautiful.
- Go to your local pumpkin patch! Take pictures and print them to look back on them later.
The last of the self care checklist.
- Change your phone wallpaper to fall leaves.
- Decorate your planner fall themed. You can get cute supplies on Etsy or at Michael’s!
Michael’s always has the cutest seasonal paper pads. Whenever I buy them, my kids use them all up! Sometimes, I get to save them and use them for next year. Not usually though, haha.
- Read a book you’ve been wanting to read outside and smell the fresh air.
- Make time to go pick some apples with your kiddos.
I hope you enjoyed this fall inspired blog post! Have a great day and until next time,
