5 Mindful Ways to Celebrate Yourself Every Day

If you're anything like us, you love to celebrate your loved ones whenever and however you can, whether that's throwing them a memorable birthday party or gifting dainty jewelry for the holidays. Giving our love and attention to friends and family makes us happy. But did you know that you deserve the same TLC treatment? Or that you have the power to celebrate yourself? 

If this concept is new to you, don't stress! Everyone has to start their self-care journey somewhere, so start here and let us be your guide. Let’s talk about five ways you can celebrate yourself every day.


What Does it Mean to Celebrate Yourself?

Celebrating yourself is all about empowering and honoring yourself whenever you can, whether celebrating an accomplishment or supporting your dreams and goals in everyday life. Celebrating yourself is about creating the most unstoppable version of yourself while slowing down to appreciate every step of the journey. If you spend all your time celebrating others, it can be easy to forget that you deserve to give yourself the same treatment!

Take a second and think about the last time you celebrated something about yourself. Was it a birthday? Graduation or promotion, maybe? Well, let us be the first to tell you that you don’t have to wait for a special occasion – there are reasons to treat yourself every day! Celebrating yourself is about recognizing any win, from the smallest to the biggest.


5 Reasons to Celebrate Yourself:

  1. Helps you focus on gratitude 
  2. Stops you from needing approval from others
  3. Boosts your self-love
  4. Encourages internal validation
  5. Increases your confidence


Celebrate Yourself with Self-Care Gifts

If you're wondering how you're supposed to celebrate yourself on a day-to-day basis, your self-care routines are the perfect place to start. When you practice little moments of self-care throughout the day, you can include celebrations! Whether buying a dainty necklace or meditation stones, investing in your self-care ritual and planning out how to purposefully celebrate yourself in small ways every day is the key to unlocking self-love.  


5 Thoughtful Ways to Celebrate Yourself Every Day

Thinking of ways to celebrate yourself may seem daunting at first, but there are little gifts you can give yourself or routines you can implement into your life that make it easy!

Here are five ways you can start celebrating yourself in your everyday life: 

  1. Jewelry
  2. Spa day
  3. Smudging
  4. Journal
  5. Yoga 


1. Celebrate Yourself with the Gift of Jewelry

Here's a secret: you don’t have to wait for someone else to gift you jewelry (although we love when they do)! You don’t even have to wait for a major holiday or milestone. Celebrate yourself by gifting yourself dainty jewelry that you adore whenever the mood strikes.

Try timeless dainty jewelry like the Jovie Dainty Chain Necklace or a sophisticated piece like the Stem Lariat. Finding pieces that make you feel beautiful and confident is one way to celebrate you. Keep your jewelry organized, and soon you'll have a lovely, meaningful collection of dainty jewelry that celebrates your story and grows as you do.


2. Treat Yourself to an At-Home Spa Day

When the hustle and bustle of life get you down, show yourself some love and celebrate with an at-home spa day. Slow down and stock up on self-care gifts for a thoughtful way to care for your body and mind. You don't need to always celebrate some huge promotion or holiday—you can simply celebrate that you're present and you're thanking your body for all it can do with a relaxing spa day.

Did you know smells can change your mood? We love using different scented products, like a favorite candle or Incense Cones, to set the tone for a spa day. Apply your favorite face mask and bathe with Bath Tea for ultimate relaxation. As you enjoy your home spa day, consider what you're proud of and thankful for.


3. Cleanse Your Space 

An easy way to take time out of your busy day and focus on your own needs is to cleanse your space. Smudging is the ancient practice of burning sacred herbs to clear out any negative energies and invite positive ones back into the area. Add the art of smudging into your daily routine to ensure you take a moment out of your daily schedule and celebrate yourself. Set your intentions, focus on your goals, and recognize any wins, big or small, as you use your smudge stick.

Light the Sage and Lavender Smudge Stick for blessings at the end of the day. Welcome peaceful energy to your space every morning with the Local Sage with Rose and Mugwort Smudge Stick. Include smudge sticks in your self-care routine for a simple way to carve out time for you.


4. Write Reasons to Celebrate in a Journal

Did you know there are endless benefits to journaling? Keep a journal to confide your hopes and dreams and to celebrate little and big wins every day. So, whether you're writing something you're proud of every day or plotting how to achieve your goals, you can celebrate yourself in a journal.

Selecting a journal that speaks to you is half the fun! Write your life goals in the Spiral | You Are Here to Do Incredible Things, or manifest your hopes and celebrate your little victories in the Create Yourself Guided Journal. Take the time to write everything down and celebrate yourself with a journal and the practice of daily writing. 


5. Discover How to Celebrate Yourself with Yoga 

Yoga is a relaxing and personal way to celebrate yourself. Carve out "me time" in your self-care routine and give yourself a space to do some internal reflection and cultivate self-love. You can practice self-love affirmations, set intentions to celebrate certain wins, and even manifest more reasons to celebrate all within a yoga session.

Include Meditation Stones in your meditation practice to focus on self-love in your practice. Celebrate yourself by adding gentle movement and mind-calming techniques to your self-care rituals with yoga and meditation.

You deserve radical self-love and celebrations, whether you're nearing a major life milestone or are proud of something you did on a random day of the week. There will always be a reason to celebrate you—you just have to look for it. With these self-care gifts and the right mindset, you can celebrate yourself every day!
