We call BS on being a people pleaser all the time. There’s nothing wrong with putting yourself first and saying no from time to time. In the battle of busyness, it’s easy to forget about the most important person in your life – you!
That’s why we’re officially making self-care Sundays, every Sunday, a thing! Our version of Self-care Sundays is designed for you to take back control of your day, before the demands of the work week kick in. Here’s how.
Don't be late for your important date
Block out next Sunday’s ‘you’ time in the calendar right now. We’ll wait. Ok, done? Make the commitment to yourself and treat ‘your’ appointment just as important as any other.
Learn to say no
If you’re always up for anything, the idea of taking time to be selfish can be a scary one. It’s ok to say no from time to time – there will always be another breakfast date or Sunday sesh to join. After all, if you’re not your best self, how can you give your best to anyone else?
Turn it off – and keep it off
If you’re reading this on your mobile, by all means, finish the article, and then turn it off! Ween yourself off the screen with a digital detox, even if it's for a few hours if you can’t manage an entire day. You’ll be surprised at just how clearer your mind will be when you’re not mindlessly scrolling through your social media feed every other minute.
Eat something decadent and delicious, obvs
You’ve got the whole week to be good, but today’s the day to feed both body and soul. If cooking is your jam, whip up your favourite breakfast or sinful dinner. Or, if you don’t know a frypan from a fork, let us do the cooking. Shop the Youfoodz menu online or via the app and fill your cart with fresh and healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, juice, and snacks! Plus, that’s next week’s entire menu sorted, so you could squeeze in self-care Tuesday or Thursday time as well!

If you’ve been cooped up in an office all week and haven’t seen the sunlight, now’s your time to shine. Find a local bushwalk or bicycle route and hit the trail. You could even pull out a picnic rug and get your hit of vitamin D in the backyard – (and always remember to slip, slop, slap!)
What do you do that makes you feel at peace, fulfilled, de-stressed, and re-energised? You don’t have to drink tea leaves imported from the depths of Timbuktu or get a 24-carat gold facial, but by all means, today’s the day to spoil yourself.
- Book in for a massage!
- Crack open a bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion and make a toast to you!
- Find a cosy nook and flick through that magazine or book you’ve been dying to read!
- Hit the road and drive to nowhere – with a cheesy playlist, of course!
- Dance like nobody, or everybody, is watching!
We wanna know what you're doing for you this Sunday! Even if it’s just one tiny thing, make it a prioity to do you, boo!
