Self Care Activities in Austin, Texas

October 20, 2023

Say yes to taking care of yourself this fall! With the temperatures finally getting a bit cooler in Austin, I want to encourage you to spend some time taking care of you. We often tend to spend a lot of time taking care of those around us but hardly spend time doing things we love and give us rest. Set aside a weekend and schedule some self-care activities on your calendar! I know people have different ideas of what gives them rest, but I wanted to share with you some ways I like to personally decompress on weekends and hopefully it’ll inspire you to rest too – 

Cafe hopping

Whether you are meeting with friends or enjoying your alone time, a cafe is the perfect place to do just that. Here is a list of coffee shops around Austin that serve as the perfect place to read a book or hang out with loved ones!

Eat at a delicious restaurant

Here are some Austin eats that are my personal favorites – easy to pick up or dine in!

Get a massage and/or a facial

Facials and massages have been such an important part of my self-care journey as it helps me to fully relax and simply rest in knowing that my body is being taken care of. If you’re interested, here are some places I personally have tried and thoroughly enjoyed!

Go on walks

With the weather cooling down, it is the perfect time to take walks! Bring a friend for “walk and talk” hangouts or go alone and enjoy the views of Austin. As my physical therapist would always tell me, “motion is lotion” for the body.
